What does 600 x 800 equal?

the answer is 480,000. Because both numbers have two zeros you can cancel out the zeros and add them later. So now you are left with 6×8. If you take six and add it to itself eight times, you get 48. Now we can deal with the zeros. Because we dropped 2 zeros from 600 and 2 zeros from 800 you get a total of 4 dropped zeros. You can take these zeros and add them onto 48. Adding 1 zero gets you 480. 2 zeros, 4,800. 3 zeros, 48,000. And finally 4 zeros, 480,000!! You can check your work by dividing 480,000 by 6 OR 8. If you divide by 6 your answer should be 8, and if you divide by 8 your answer should be 6.

What is 1000000x1000000?

A million times a million is a trillion, or 1,000,000,000,000. In this particular case, the shortcut is to add your zeros. When you multiply a number with 6 zeros with another number with 6 zeros, it will always have 12 zeros. In other similar problems beginning with numbers other than 1 or with more than one starting digit that is not a zero, you can just multiply the non-zero part at the beginning and then add the zeros from both multiplicands onto the end of the product, thus 60 x 200 would be 12,000. That is, you multiply the 6 and the 2 and add on the 3 zeros.

How can you multiply a decimal times a whole number?

-- Ignore the decimal point; just multiply the two whole numbers. -- After the multiplication is done, put the decimal point back into the product. Put it in the right place so that the product has as many digits after the point as the original decimal had. If there aren't enough digits in the product to do that, add some zeros to the left end of it.
