## Multiply whole numbers with zeros

What is meant by whole numbers?

### Multiplication with estimation for whole numbers with zeros

Estimation:

An estimation is an approximate judgment or calculation, as of the value, amount, time, size, or weight of something.

Example 1:

A fruit seller, stacked 301 apples in one large basket.  He packed 34 baskets, how many apples did he pack?

Solution:

Step 1: Find 34 × 401.

Estimate:

30 × 400 = 12,000

Step 2:

Multiply by the ones.

Re-group if necessary.

Remember that multiplying with zero gives zero as the final product.

Step 3:

Multiply by the tens.

Re-group if necessary.

Add to get the final product.

He packed 13,634 apples.
