## Step-by-Step Guide to Multiplying Two-Digit Numbers

**Understanding the Process:**

Let's break down the multiplication of 36 by 27. This process involves multiplying each digit systematically and then combining the results.

**Step 1: Multiply the Units Digit**

First, we multiply 36 by the units digit of 27, which is 7.

36×736 \times 736×7

Start by multiplying the ones place: 7×6=427 \times 6 = 427×6=42Write down the 2 and carry over the 4.

Next, multiply the tens place: 7×3=217 \times 3 = 217×3=21Add the carried-over 4: 21+4=2521 + 4 = 2521+4=25

Write down 25, giving us 252.

**Step 2: Multiply the Tens Digit**

Next, we multiply 36 by the tens digit of 27, which is 2 (representing 20).

36×2036 \times 2036×20

We multiply the ones place: 2×6=122 \times 6 = 122×6=12Write down the 2 and carry over the 1.

Multiply the tens place: 2×3=62 \times 3 = 62×3=6Add the carried-over 1: 6+1=76 + 1 = 76+1=7

This gives us 720 (since we are multiplying by 20).

**Step 3: Add the Results**

Now, add the two partial products:

252+720252 + 720252+720

Align the numbers by place value and add:2 (ones) + 0 = 2

5 (tens) + 2 = 7

2 (hundreds) + 7 = 9

The final result is 972.

**Breaking Down the Digits:**

Revisiting the example, it's crucial to understand what each digit represents in terms of place value.

36 can be seen as 30 + 6.

27 can be broken down into 20 + 7.

By decomposing these numbers, we can simplify the multiplication process:

36×736 \times 736×7 breaks into:30×7=21030 \times 7 = 21030×7=210

6×7=426 \times 7 = 426×7=42

Add these: 210+42=252210 + 42 = 252210+42=252

36×2036 \times 2036×20 simplifies to:30×20=60030 \times 20 = 60030×20=600

6×20=1206 \times 20 = 1206×20=120

Combine these: 600+120=720600 + 120 = 720600+120=720

Adding the two results, 252 and 720, we again arrive at 972.
