Yesterday, we started multiplying two- digit numbers with had same first digit numbers, Second digit sum to 10.
We’ll use 83 x 87 = 7221 as an example.
Step 1: Multiply first digit by one number greater than itself;
this is the first part of the answer. 8 x 9= 72
Step 2: Multiply the two second digits;
the product is the last part of the answer. 3 x 7 = 21
Step 3: Put the pieces together. 83 x 87 = 7221
We also began to reconcile the statement of account to transaction record. The statement of account was correct and the transaction record had some errors. Confer the statement of account and the transaction record, then find the errors and correct it.
