Multiplication and divisionPrint
To multiply 237 by 4 without using a calculator, you can set it out like this:
Start with 4 × 7, which is 28, so write the 8 and carry the 2 to the tens column.
4 × 3 = 12, but remember to add the carried 2 to get 14. Write the 4 and carry the 1 to the hundreds column.
4 × 2 = 8, and we add the carried 1 to get 9.
Therefore 237 × 4 = 948
This method is called short multiplication.
