Maths Mate Term 4 Sheet 8 #24

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!
