To calculate 4 digit by 1 digit multiplication word problems, let’s consider a 4 digit by 1 digit multiplication problem here. Suppose, 4295 is the 4 digit multiplicand and 6 is the multiplier. So, the problem will be 4295 x 6 =? So first, multiply the one’s place number by 6.
In this problem, the one’s place number is 5. This will be multiplied by 6. 5 x 6 = 30.
Here 0 will be written in the one’s place of the product and 3 is carry.
Then multiply the ten’s place by 6. Here the te’s place number is 9. So, 9 x 6 = 54. You have a carry 3. Now, add the carry with 54. So, 54 + 3 = 57.
Write down the 7 in ten’s place of the product and 5 is carry. In this way, multiply the other numbers by 6 and add the carry if there is any.
At last, the result will be 4295 x 6 = 25770. Did this result match your kiddo’s product?
