(v)11 x 5 = 10 x 5 + 1 x 5 = 50 + 5 = 55

(vi)30 x5 = 150

(vii) 20 x4 = 80

(viii)23×9 = 20×9 + 3×9 = 180 + 27 = 207

(ix)26 x 4 = 20 x 4 + 6 x 4 = 80 + 24 = 104

(x)38 x 2 = 30 x 2 + 8 x 2 = 60 + 16 = 76

(xi)25 x 3 = 20 x 3 + 5 x 3 = 60 + 15 = 75

(xii)24 x 5 = 20 x 5 + 4 x 5 = 100 + 20 = 120

(xiii)35×3 = 30×3 + 5×3 = 90 + 15 = 105

(xiv)48 x 4 = 40 x 4 + 8 x 4 = 160 + 32 = 192

(xv) 32 x 5 = 30 x 5 + 2 x 5 = 150 + 10 = 160

(xvi)58 x 2 = 50 x 2 + 8 x 2 = 100 + 16 = 116.

**2.First guess the answer and then calculate:**

** (i)A flower has five petals. A bunch of flowers has 13 flowers. How many petals are there in a bunch?**

**Ans.** Guess: 13 is more than 10 and less than 20 10 times 5 is 50 20 times 5 is 100

So, 13 times 5 is between 50 and 100

Calculation:13 x 5=10×5+3×5

=50+15=65

Hence, there are 65 petals in the bunch.

**(ii)A book has 64 pages. What will be the total number of pages in 8 such books?**

**Ans.** Guess: 64 is more than 60 and less than 70 60 times 8 is 480 70 times 8 is 560

So, 64 times 8 is between 480 and 560 Calculation:

64 x 8

= 60×8 + 4×8 = 480 + 32 = 512

Hence, there are 512 pages in 8 books.

**(iii) Students stand in rows in the assembly. There are six rows of students. Each row has 17 students. How many students are there?**

**Ans.** Guess: 17 is more than 10 and less than 20 10 times 6 is 60 20 times 6 is 120

So, 17 times 6 between 60 and 120

Calculation: ”

17×6

= 10×6 + 7×6 = 60 + 42 = 102

Hence, there are 102 students in 6 rows.

**(iv) A design has 3 flowers in it. A piece of cloth has 17 such designs. How many flowers will be on the cloth?**

**Ans.** Guess: 17 is more than 10 and less than 20 10 times 3 is 30 20 times 3 is 60

So, 17 times 3 is between 30 and 60 Calculation:

17 x 3

= 10×3 + 7×3 = 30 + 21 = 51.

**Multiplication Patterns**

**9×1 = 9**

** 9 x 2 = 18 1 + 8 = 9**

** 9 x 3 = 27 2 + 7 = 9**

** 9 x 4 = 36 3 + 6 = 9**

** 9 x 5 = 45 4 + 5 = 9**

** 9 x 6 = 54 5 + 4 = 9**

** 9 x 1 = 63 6 + 3 = 9**

** 9 x 8 = 12 1 + 2 = 9**

**1.Did you see the pattern in the 9 times table? What numbers are adding up to 9?**

**Ans.** The 9 times table shows a certain pattern. Digit sum of the products is always

**2.Complete the grid by multiplying the numbers.**

Look at the cross in your grid.

Add the numbers together from top to bottom.

3 + 6 + 9 = 18

Add the numbers together from left to right.

4 + 6 + 8 = 18

The total is the same.

**Ans.** The complete grid is as follows:

**Let us add numbers as follows:**

6 + 12 + 18 = 36 10 + 12 + 14 = 36 9 + 18 + 27 = 54 16 + 18 + 20 = 54 8 + 10 + 12 = 30 5 + 10 + 15 = 30

In each crosses the total remains the same.

•Mark the numbers 1 – 10 in the same grid in one colour. •’ Mark the numbers 12 – 20 in another colour.

• imilarly, mark 21 – 30 in a third colour.
