Multiply any two numbers from 11 to 20 in your head:-


Multiply any two numbers from 11 to 20 in your head Take 15 x 13 for example… Place the larger no. first in your mind and then do something like this.

Take the larger no on the top and the second digit of the smaller no. in the bottom. 15 3 The rest is quite simple. Add 15+3 = 18 . Then multiply it by 10. In this example – 18 x 10 = 180 … Now multiply the second digit of both the no.s (ie; 5 x 3 = 15) Now add 180 + 15. Here is the answer 180 + 15 = 195 . Think over it. This is a simple trick. It will help you a lot.please comment after reading

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
