00:00:01.150 --> 00:00:08.610
You’re told that thirty-nine times seven equals two hundred and seventy-three and thirty-nine times thirty equals one thousand one hundred and seventy.
00:00:09.030 --> 00:00:12.290
Use this to find thirty-nine times thirty-seven.
00:00:13.480 --> 00:00:23.210
Well in finding thirty-nine times thirty-seven, you’ll notice in the information we were given we’ve got thirty-nine times seven and we’ve got thirty-nine times thirty.
00:00:23.210 --> 00:00:25.360
So that thirty-nine is common to all of those.
00:00:25.790 --> 00:00:30.350
Now thirty-seven can be got by adding seven and thirty.
00:00:30.380 --> 00:00:32.220
So let’s write a few things down.
00:00:33.370 --> 00:00:36.640
Thirty-seven, as we’ve just said, is equal to seven plus thirty.
00:00:37.620 --> 00:00:44.040
So we can rewrite thirty-nine times thirty-seven as thirty-nine times seven plus thirty.
00:00:45.160 --> 00:00:55.310
Now we can use the distributive property of multiplication, and thirty-nine times seven plus thirty means thirty-nine times seven plus thirty-nine times thirty.
00:00:56.570 --> 00:01:05.660
And we were told in the question that thirty-nine times seven is equal to two hundred and seventy-three and thirty-nine times thirty is one thousand one hundred and seventy.
00:01:05.660 --> 00:01:15.080
So we can replace these in our calculation, which means that thirty-nine times thirty-seven is simply two hundred and seventy-three plus one thousand one hundred and seventy.
00:01:16.130 --> 00:01:19.680
And we can quickly do that addition, so three plus zero is three.
00:01:20.230 --> 00:01:24.090
Seven and seven is fourteen, so that’s four carry one.
00:01:24.760 --> 00:01:28.280
Two and one is three plus the one we’ve carried makes four.
00:01:29.080 --> 00:01:33.490
And just one on its own is one, so the answer is one thousand four hundred and forty-three.
00:01:34.850 --> 00:01:39.750
And there’s our answer then, thirty-nine times thirty-seven equals one thousand four hundred and forty-three.
00:01:41.020 --> 00:01:44.280
But in this case, actually the answer isn’t the main point of this.
00:01:44.530 --> 00:01:53.440
The question said use this, so use the fact that thirty-nine times seven is two hundred and seventy-three and thirty-nine times thirty equals one thousand one hundred and seventy in order to find that.
00:01:53.440 --> 00:02:03.020
So the important part is our calculation here specifically this bit here showing that you’re using the distributive property to complete that calculation.
00:02:04.520 --> 00:02:13.490
And if you wanted to be absolutely sure of doing the best possible working out, you might actually write down that you were using the distributive property of multiplication in your working out.
