At 3rd grade, students learn the multiplication table up to 10x10.

Alongside learning their times tables, they start to learn formal methods how to multiply a 2-digit number by a single digit.

The sheets available on this page will help you to practice this skill.

If you need more support, then take a look at our worked examples or watch our video.

Step 1) Multiply the ones digit of the 2-digit number by the single digit.

- Write the number of ones below the line in the ones place.
- Carry over any tens and write them above the number in the tens place.

5 x 7 = 35. Write the 5 below the line in the ones place. Carry over 3 tens.

Step 2) Multiply the tens digit of the 2-digit number by the single digit, adding on any tens that you carried over.

- Write the number below the line in the tens place (or in the hundreds and tens place if the answer has 2 digits).

5 x 3 = 15. 15 + 3 = 18. Write the 1 in the hundreds place and 8 in the tens place below the line.

You should now have your final answer.

37 x 5 = 185.

We have created a short video to help you learn to multiply 2-digit numbers by a single digit.

We show you how to solve the examples shown below and compare the multiplication method with the addition method for solving the same problem.

Step 1) Multiply the ones digit of the 2-digit number by the single digit. Write the answer below the line in the ones place. Carry over any tens.

2 x 3 = 6. There are no tens to carry over.

Step 2) Multiply the tens digit of the 2-digit number by the single digit, adding on any extra tens you carried over.

Write the answer below the tens digit.

2 x 4 = 8

This gives us a final answer of 86.

Step 1) Multiply the ones digit of the 2-digit number by the single digit. Write the number of ones below the line in the ones place. Carry over any tens.

4 x 5 = 20. We write 0 in the ones place below the line. There are 2 tens to carry over.

Step 2) Multiply the tens digit of the 2-digit number by the single digit, adding on any extra tens you carried over.

Write the answer below the tens digit.

4 x 6 = 24. 24 + 2 = 26. We write the 2 in the hundreds place and 6 in the tens place under the line.

This gives us a final answer of 260.

Step 1) Multiply the ones digit of the 2-digit number by the single digit. Write the number of ones below the line in the ones place. Carry over any tens.

5 x 7 = 35. We write 5 in the ones place below the line. There are 3 tens to carry over.

Step 2) Multiply the tens digit of the 2-digit number by the single digit, adding on any extra tens you carried over.

Write the answer below the tens digit.

5 x 3 = 15. 15 + 3 = 18. We write the 1 in the hundreds place and 8 in the tens place under the line.

This gives us a final answer of 185.

Step 1) Multiply the ones digit of the 2-digit number by the single digit. Write the number of ones below the line in the ones place. Carry over any tens.

7 x 8 = 56. We write 6 in the ones place below the line. There are 5 tens to carry over.

Write the answer below the tens digit.

7 x 4 = 28. 28 + 5 = 33. We write the 3 in the hundreds place and 3 in the tens place under the line.

This gives us a final answer of 336.
