The Problem: Fill in the missing digits in the multiplication.

1 _ 4

X 8

_________

_ 9 _

How I solved it: First I did 8 times 4 and that equals 32 so put down the 2 and carried the 3 to the next column. Then I did 8 times 2 plus 3 and that equals 19 so I put down the 9 and carried the 1. 8 times 1 plus 1 equals 9 so put down the 9. The answer is 124 times 8 equals 992!
