## Our Guide to Multiplying 1-Digit Numbers by Multiples of 10, 100, and 1000

###### Understanding the Basics

When multiplying a 1-digit number by a multiple of 10, 100, or 1000, you can break down the larger number into smaller components that are easier to manage. Let's explore this concept step-by-step.

###### Multiplying by 10

Consider the problem: 4 x 80.

**Break Down the Multiple**: 80 can be written as 8 x 10.**Multiply the Single-Digit Numbers**: Multiply 4 by 8 to get 32.**Apply the Pattern**: Multiply 32 by 10 by simply adding a zero at the end, resulting in 320.

###### Multiplying by 100

Next, let’s try: 6 x 300.

**Break Down the Multiple**: 300 is the same as 3 x 100.**Multiply the Single-Digit Numbers**: Multiply 6 by 3 to get 18.**Apply the Pattern**: Multiply 18 by 100 by adding two zeros at the end, resulting in 1800.

###### Multiplying by 1000

Finally, consider: 7 x 7000.

**Break Down the Multiple**: 7000 can be written as 7 x 1000.**Multiply the Single-Digit Numbers**: Multiply 7 by 7 to get 49.**Apply the Pattern**: Multiply 49 by 1000 by adding three zeros at the end, resulting in 49,000.

###### Recognizing Patterns

The key pattern here is the addition of zeros:

Multiplying by 10: Add one zero.

Multiplying by 100: Add two zeros.

Multiplying by 1000: Add three zeros.

By recognizing and applying these patterns, you can quickly and accurately multiply any single-digit number by multiples of 10, 100, or 1000.

###### Examples to Practice

Try these on your own:

9 x 50: Break it down to 9 x 5 x 10. Solution: 450.

9 x 500: Break it down to 9 x 5 x 100. Solution: 4500.

9 x 5000: Break it down to 9 x 5 x 1000. Solution: 45,000.

Master these patterns and you'll have a powerful tool for multiplication at your disposal!
