In this video, Mr. Squeaks decides to make a new invention out of spare parts. When he turns it on there's just one problem, all it displays is multiplication equations! If you don’t know how to do multiplication standard algorithm, don’t worry! This standard algorithm multiplication video explains what is standard algorithm in multiplication, and how to do multiplication standard algorithm. Let's help Mr. Squeaks unlock his invention by practicing standard algorithm multiplication!

### What is the Standard Algorithm for Multiplication?

First, we need to know what is a standard algorithm. A standard algorithm is a step-by-step way to solve a problem. What is the standard algorithm for multiplication? Understanding the standard algorithm for multiplication just means that you know the step-by-step way to solve a multiplication problem. The standard multiplication algorithm is demonstrated and explained by multiplying multi-digit numbers.

### How to do Standard Algorithm Multiplication

Now that we know what is standard algorithm multiplication, you may be wondering how to do standard algorithm in multiplication. We can do standard algorithm for multiplication by following standard algorithm multiplication steps.

Let’s take a look at a standard algorithm multiplication example so we can see step by step standard algorithm multiplication!

In this standard algorithm multiplication example, we will be multiplying fifty-two times four. Before we can do multiplication using the standard algorithm, we must set up the problem by placing the larger factor on top, and line up the other factor below it. We must line up all the digits by place value, and include a multiplication symbol.

[line 9: fifty-two-times-four-horizontally-multiplication-standard-algorithm]

[line 11: fifty-two-times-four-vertically-multiplication-standard-algorithm]

Now that our problem is set up for multiplication using standard algorithm, let’s solve it!

In order to calculate fifty-two times four first, multiply the bottom factor by the ones place, regrouping as needed. Four times two is eight, so we write it in the ones place.

[line 14: fifty-two-times-four-four-times-two-equals-eight-multiplication-standard-algorithm]

No regrouping is needed, so we move on to the next step. Next, multiply the bottom factor by the tens place. What is the product of four times five tens? Twenty tens, and we write it in the tens and hundreds place.

[line 18: fifty-two-times-four-four-times-five-equals-twenty-multiplication-standard-algorithm]

When we solve fifty-two times four we get the product two hundred right! We just did multiplication using the standard algorithm! Now that you have practiced and know what is standard algorithm in multiplication, let’s review!

### Multi Digit Multiplication Standard Algorithm Summary

Remember the standard algorithm of multiplication is just the steps for how to solve multiplication using standard algorithm. Here are the steps for how to do the standard algorithm multiplication:

• Step 1: Set up the equation vertically by lining up the place values
• Step 2: Multiply the bottom factor by the ones place, regrouping as needed
• Step 3: Multiply the bottom factor by the tens place, regrouping as needed
• Step 4: Repeat the pattern as needed until you have multiplied all the place values

Follow these simple steps if you want to practice multiplication with standard algorithm!

One afternoon long long ago, Mr. Squeaks decided to make a new invention out of spare parts. There's just one problem, all it displays is multiplication equations! Let's help Mr. Squeaks unlock his invention by... "Multiplying up to Three Digits Using the Standard Algorithm". The first equation we need to solve to help Mr. Squeaks is fifty-two times four. When we multiply numbers using the standard algorithm... ...we place the larger factor on top, and line up the other factor below it. We MUST line up all the digits by place value, and include a multiplication symbol. In order to calculate fifty-two times four... first, multiply the bottom factor by the ones place, regrouping as needed. Four times two is eight... so we write it in the ones place HERE. No regrouping is needed, so we move on to the next step. Next, multiply the bottom factor by the tens place. What is the product of four times five tens? (...) Twenty tens, and we write it HERE. The product of fifty-two times four is two hundred eight. Mr. Squeaks enters the product on the robot and... another equation appears! Now, we'll calculate eighty-six times nine. First, set up the equation vertically by lining up the place values. (...) Then, multiply the bottom factor by the ones place, regrouping as needed. What is the product of nine times six? (...) Fifty-four, but fifty-four does not fit in the ONES place... so we put four in the ones place (...) and regroup five TENS here. Next, multiply the bottom factor by the tens place. What is the product of nine times eight tens? (...) Seventy-two tens, but we're not finished yet. Since we regrouped five tens to the tens place, we MUST add them. Seventy-two tens PLUS five tens is seventy-seven tens. The product of eighty-six times nine is seven hundred seventy-four. Mr. Squeaks enters the product on the robot, and... one final equation appears! Last, we'll calculate two hundred ninety-three times seven. First, set up the equation vertically by lining up the place values. (...) Next, multiply the bottom factor by the ones place, regrouping if needed. What is the product of seven times three? (...) Twenty-one, so we put one in the ONES place... and regroup two tens HERE. Then, multiply the bottom factor by the tens place. What is the product of seven times nine tens? (...) Sixty-three tens. Now, add the two tens we regrouped. Sixty-three plus two is sixty-five... so we put five in the tens place (...) regrouping six to the hundreds place. We have three digits this time, so we continue solving. Next, multiply seven times two hundreds... to get fourteen hundreds. Are we finished? (...) Not until we add the six hundreds we regrouped. Forteen hundreds plus six hundreds is twenty hundreds (...) and we write it HERE. Don't forget your comma! The product of two hundred ninety-three times seven (...) is two thousand fifty-one! Remember (...) when we multiply numbers up to three digits using the standard algorithm... the first step is to set up the equation vertically by lining up the place values. The second step is to multiply the bottom factor by the ones place, regrouping as needed. The third step is to multiply the bottom factor by the tens place, regrouping as needed. The fourth step is to repeat the pattern as needed until you have multiplied all the place values. Okay Mr. Squeaks, is your invention working? Mr. Squeaks has a new robot friend (...) and it looks like he's called them Imani! What would you name his new friend? Write your name ideas in the comments below!
