i don't know how to multiply 2 digit times 2 digit
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Final answer is in bold. Place the numbers on top of one another first
26
x 34
Always look at the bottom number and start with the digit on the far right. In this one it is 4. Multiply the 4 to the top number's far right digit which is 6. 6 x 4=24. You can only place one number in each spot so put the ones digit of 24 (the 4) underneath. It should look like this.
26
x 34
= 4
Do not get rid of the 2 from 24. Instead, carry that to the top of the 2 in 26. Now multiply that same 4 from 34 to the 2. 4 x 2=8 but then add on the 2 that you carried from getting 24 so you should have 4 x 2 = 8 +2=10. Normally you would only put one digit down but since there is nothing else to carry the 1 to put both digits of 10 down and it should look like this
26
x 34
= 104
When you are doing multiplication with two by two numbers you need to leave one space or a zero on the next line like this. 26
x 34
= 104
0
Now repeat the multiplying process with the 3. Multiply 3 by the top right number above it so 6. 3 x 6=18. Again, we only can put one number down so we take just the 8 (the ones digit) and place it next to the zero
26
x 34
= 104
80
26
x 34
+ 780
All the multiplication is done because you have no more digits to multiply in the bottom number. Now you have to add the 104 and 780 to get the final answer. 104+780=884
26
x 34
+ 780
= 884
