## Multiply whole numbers with zeros

**What is meant by whole numbers?**

Whole numbers are a set of numbers including all positive integers and 0.

- Whole numbers are a part of real numbers that do not include fractions, decimals, or negative numbers.
- Counting numbers are also considered as whole numbers.

**Example: Multiply 309 × 41**

### 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. **

### Practice multiplying multi-digit numbers

**What is meant by multi digit numbers?**

Multi digit numbers means having more than one digit (number).

Example: 3,456

**Multi digit numbers multiplication:**

### Solve problems for multiplication with multi-digit number

**Example 1:**

Merci reads 6 fun facts every day at bedtime. How many fun facts will she read in 1,425 days?

**Solution:**

Find, 6 × 1,425

Estimate:

5 × 1,425 is about 5 × 1,400.

**She will read 8,550 fun facts in 1,425 days. **

**Example 2:**

Charm has a tile store. She has 1,350 dozen varieties of tiles for sale. How many varieties are for sale?

**Solution:**

Find 12 × 1,350.

Estimate 12 × 1,350 = 12 × 1300 = 15,600

16, 200 varieties of tiles for sale.
