Calculate 50 X 60 67 X53 Calculate 50 X 7 21 180 350 3,000 Calculate 3 X 60 Calculate 3 X 7 + Add the results 3,551 To find 67 x 53, decompose the numbers! Think of 67 as 60 + 7 Think of 53 as 50 + 3. Multiply each part of 67 by each part of 53. Add the results Always start here www.classroom-teacher-resources.com

Calculate 40 x 80 82 X45 Calculate 40 x 2 10 400 80 3,200 Calculate 5 x 80 Calculate 5 x 2 + Add the results 3,690 Let’s try another one! Always start here www.classroom-teacher-resources.com

= 10 x 20 26 X18 = 10 x 6 48 160 60 200 = 8 x 20 = 8 x 6 + Add the results 468 Try this on your own! www.classroom-teacher-resources.com
