# Multiplication by 11 (Speed Math)

## Example 1: Calculate 12 × 11

Add digits of $12$ like this

$1\quad 1+2\quad 2$

Rewrite with the sum of digits

$1\quad 3\quad 2$

answer $=132$

## Example 2: Calculate 1245 × 11

Add digits of $1245$ like this

$1\quad 1+2\quad 2+4 \quad 4+5\quad 5$

Rewrite with the sum of digits

$1\quad 3\quad 6 \quad 9\quad 5$

answer $=13695$

## Example 3: Calculate 472385 × 11

Add digits of $472385$ like this

$4\quad 4+7\quad 7+2 \quad 2+3\quad 3+8\quad 8+5\quad 5$

Rewrite with the sum of digits

$4\quad 11\quad 9 \quad 5\quad 11\quad \class{bd p-5}{1}3\quad 5$

In $13$ shown above, take $1$ as carry. Add this $1$ to its left neighbor number $11.$ Thus $11$ becomes $12$

$4\quad 11\quad 9 \quad 5\quad \class{bd p-5}{1}2\quad 3\quad 5$

In $12$ shown above, take $1$ as carry. Add this $1$ to its left neighbor number $5.$ Thus $5$ becomes $6$

$4\quad \class{bd p-5}{1}1\quad 9 \quad 6\quad 2\quad 3\quad 5$

In $11$ shown above, take $1$ as carry. Add this $1$ to its left neighbor number $4.$ Thus $4$ becomes $5$

$5\quad 1\quad 9 \quad 6\quad 2\quad 3\quad 5$

Why it works? If you write the numbers in 2 lines (your number on top of 11) and then do a simple multlipication, you will quickly and easily see why this method works for any number no matter how large!

19*11 =

19 *
11
------
19
19
-----
209

The more fun is playing with two numbers having all ones, like: 11111111111111111*11111111111111111
I can give you the answer without writing a single digit down, just by looking at the numbers! 0 0 reply Arkajyoti

START FROM LEFT SIDE
(9+4=13 SO KEEP 3  ADD ONE NEXT SUM)9
(2+4+1=7)39
(1+2=3)739

19*11= 190+19 = 209

1249*11= 12490+1249 = 13739 0 0 abc

19*11 as per method:
last digit of 19 is 9
neighbour of 9 is 1 add 9+1=10
then add left part of 10 with left part of 19 i.e-1+1=2
now put all together i.e 209 similarly it follows 29*11,39*11... 0 0 Alex

19*11
1)9
2)9+1=10=0  (carry1)
3)1+1(carry)=2
Ans: 209

1249*11=
1)9
2)9+4=13=3  (1carry)
3)4+2+1(carry)=7
4)2+1=3
5)1
Ans: 13739 0 0
