• Use of area for partial products

## Introduction:

• In this chapter, we will learn about the introduction of array.
• Use arrays in partial products
• Area of rectangle
• Area for partial products

### Use arrays for partial products

#### Partial products:

A product obtained by multiplying a multiplicand by one digit of a multiplier having more than one digit.

Example: 1

Find the product for 3 × 14.

In the below image indicate using arrays for partial products

From the above image

The numbers 30 and 12 are called partial products.

42 is the product.

Another way:

14

× 3

______

12 3 × 4 ones

+ 30    3 × 1 tens

_______

42

______

The product 42 is close to the estimate 40. The answer is reasonable.

We can use place value to break factors and distributive property to find partial products.

Example: 2

Multiply 3 × 46

Break 46 into two parts: 40 and 6.

Then, multiply those two parts separately by 3:

3 × 40 is 120, and 3 × 6 is 18.

Then, add these two partial results: 120 + 18 = 138

138 is close to 130

Note: We can use place value to break factors and the distributive property to find the partial products.

Let us see another example:

Find 2 × 124

Estimate:

2 × 124 is about 2 × 100 = 200

## Open array:

Here, we can use the distributive property

3 × 14 = (3 × 10) +(3 × 4)

### 3.4 Use of area for partial products

Area is the region bounded by the shape of an object. The space covered by the figure or any geometric shapes is the area of the shape.

Area of rectangle = Length × Breadth

A = lb

Example1:

A park is in the shape of a rectangle. It is 6 feet wide and 24 feet long. What is the area of the park?

6 × 24 is a numerical expression

We can use rectangular area model to show multiplication.

The product of 6 × 24 is the area of the rectangle.

Estimate 6 × 24 is about 6 × 20 = 120

120 + 24 = 144

The distributive property says that the sum of numbers is same as multiplying each part of the sum by that number and adding the partial products.

6 × 24 = (6 × 20) + (6 × 4)

Another way:

2 4

× 6

_________

2 4 6 × 4 ones

+ 1 2 0 6 × 2 tens

_________

1 4 4

The area of the park is 144 square feet.

The product, 144 is close to the estimate of 120. The answer is reasonable.

Example 2:

Find the area of 8 × 24

The picture illustrates the area of a rectangle with sides 8 and 24. It is also divided into two rectangles.

The area of the whole rectangle is 8 × 24 square units.

We can find that by calculating the areas of the two rectangles and adding.

The area of the first rectangle is 8 × 20 = 160 square units.

The area of the second rectangle is 8 × 4 = 32 square units.

So, the area of the whole rectangle is the sum 160 + 32 = 192 square units.

Another way

2 4

× 8

_______________

32         8 × 4

+   160        8 × 20

_______________

1 9 2
