00:00:01.880 --> 00:00:06.420
Multiplying by 10, 100, and 1,000
00:00:07.610 --> 00:00:15.930
In this video, we’re going to learn how to multiply a one- or a two-digit number by 10, 100, or 1,000.
00:00:19.210 --> 00:00:21.040
Let’s begin with a quick reminder.
00:00:21.740 --> 00:00:23.270
This is to do with place value.
00:00:23.270 --> 00:00:24.880
And it’s something we should know already.
00:00:25.380 --> 00:00:30.900
And that’s that each column to the left of another one has a value 10 times greater.
00:00:31.930 --> 00:00:34.000
So here’s a single one.
00:00:34.250 --> 00:00:40.380
But 10 of these ones are worth one of the next column along, one 10.
00:00:41.200 --> 00:00:47.680
And if we have 10 10s, that’s the same as one of the next column along, one 100.
00:00:48.740 --> 00:00:52.760
10 100s are the same as 1,000.
00:00:53.540 --> 00:01:01.490
And if we have 10 of these, it’s the same as one lot of 10,000, which we don’t have a place value block for because it would be too large.
00:01:01.490 --> 00:01:04.300
So we’ll write the digit one in the ten thousands place.
00:01:05.090 --> 00:01:12.320
So as we move from right to left across this place value grid, we multiply by 10 each time to get to the next column.
00:01:12.960 --> 00:01:24.140
Now I’m sure you knew this already, but we’re going to see as this video continues how useful it’s going to be when it comes to multiplying numbers by 10, 100, and 1,000.
00:01:25.170 --> 00:01:27.620
Let’s begin with a really simple calculation.
00:01:28.260 --> 00:01:30.710
What is five times one?
00:01:31.680 --> 00:01:34.680
The answer, of course, is the same as five ones.
00:01:35.400 --> 00:01:37.830
Five times one equals five.
00:01:38.660 --> 00:01:41.480
Now we can build on this really simple number fact.
00:01:41.700 --> 00:01:44.490
And hopefully you’ll be able to see how we can use it to help us.
00:01:45.140 --> 00:01:46.960
Let’s now multiply by 10.
00:01:46.990 --> 00:01:49.270
What is five times 10?
00:01:50.250 --> 00:01:56.800
This time, the answer is going to be the same as five lots of one 10 or five 10s.
00:01:57.500 --> 00:01:59.650
Five times 10 is 50.
00:02:00.240 --> 00:02:02.440
Do you notice anything about our two answers?
00:02:03.190 --> 00:02:04.770
We’ll come back to this in a moment.
00:02:05.490 --> 00:02:08.560
In the meantime, let’s multiply five by 100.
00:02:08.970 --> 00:02:10.660
I’m sure you’re getting the hang of this.
00:02:10.790 --> 00:02:18.080
This is going to be worth five 100s or 500 and one more.
00:02:18.290 --> 00:02:23.800
Five multiplied by 1,000, well, I’m sure you can predict how to model this.
00:02:24.330 --> 00:02:27.570
Five lots of 1,000, of course, are worth 5,000.
00:02:28.520 --> 00:02:33.960
So we’ve multiplied the same number here by one, 10, 100, and 1,000.
00:02:34.570 --> 00:02:36.780
Now what do you notice about our answers?
00:02:37.530 --> 00:02:38.310
Did you spot?
00:02:38.550 --> 00:02:42.300
Each one contains the number that we started with, five.
00:02:42.990 --> 00:02:45.390
And this brings us on to a useful fact to remember.
00:02:45.390 --> 00:02:56.660
If we’re multiplying by 10, 100, or 1,000, the digits in the number that we’re multiplying by 10, 100, or 1,000 — in this case, it’s the number five — they don’t change.
00:02:57.360 --> 00:03:05.130
So if we multiplied nine by 10, 100, or 1,000, our answers would all have the digit nine in them.
00:03:05.750 --> 00:03:14.210
If we multiply the number 28 by 10, 100, or 1,000, all our answers would have the digits two and eight in them.
00:03:14.820 --> 00:03:21.860
And even though we’re not gonna be dealing with such large numbers in this video, the answer to the question the blue monster is asking is yes.
00:03:22.450 --> 00:03:30.680
If we multiplied 7,654 by 100, the answer is going to contain the digits seven, six, five, and four.
00:03:31.690 --> 00:03:39.980
And that’s because when we multiply any number by 10, 100, or 1,000, something happens to those digits.
00:03:40.670 --> 00:03:42.950
Let’s look a little more closely at what goes on.
00:03:43.610 --> 00:03:47.620
Let’s imagine that we want to find the answer to 26 multiplied by 10.
00:03:47.860 --> 00:03:52.710
The digit two in the number 26 has a value of two 10s.
00:03:52.830 --> 00:03:54.150
It’s in the tens place.
00:03:54.590 --> 00:04:00.770
So we could put a digit card in the tens place, or we could use two 10s counters to model the number.
00:04:01.680 --> 00:04:05.730
Then the six digit in 26 is worth six ones.
00:04:06.240 --> 00:04:12.230
So again we could put a digit card in the ones place or we could use six ones counters.
00:04:13.020 --> 00:04:15.640
Both of these models show the number 26.
00:04:15.750 --> 00:04:18.080
So now we need to multiply it by 10.
00:04:18.840 --> 00:04:24.370
Now remember, as we’ve pointed out already, we know that the answer is going to contain a two and a six in it.
00:04:25.370 --> 00:04:27.330
But what’s going to happen to these digits?
00:04:27.920 --> 00:04:30.210
Firstly, let’s think about the digit two.
00:04:30.800 --> 00:04:32.380
At the moment, it’s in the tens place.
00:04:32.380 --> 00:04:34.900
It has a value of two 10s.
00:04:35.420 --> 00:04:40.970
But if we multiply this digit by 10, it’s not going to be worth two 10s anymore.
00:04:40.970 --> 00:04:43.400
It’s going to be worth 10 times as much.
00:04:44.000 --> 00:04:47.530
And this brings us back to what we learned right at the start of the video.
00:04:48.020 --> 00:04:52.960
Each column or place to the left of another one is worth 10 times as much.
00:04:53.580 --> 00:05:05.540
So if we multiply them by 10, our two 10s counters are going to be worth two 100s instead, and our digit two is going to shift one place to the left.
00:05:06.340 --> 00:05:08.030
It’s now worth two 100s.
00:05:08.810 --> 00:05:11.680
And a similar thing is going to happen to our six digit.
00:05:12.320 --> 00:05:15.050
At the moment, it’s worth six ones.
00:05:15.670 --> 00:05:25.160
But as soon as we multiply these six ones by 10, they’re going to be worth 10 times as large, six 10s now.
00:05:25.900 --> 00:05:31.550
And so the digit six needs to move from where it is now into a column that’s worth 10 times as much.
00:05:31.960 --> 00:05:34.510
It’s going to shift into the tens place.
00:05:35.220 --> 00:05:41.540
And to show that these two digits have now shifted one place to the left, we need to show the empty ones column.
00:05:42.060 --> 00:05:44.600
And that’s why we write a zero as a placeholder.
00:05:45.410 --> 00:05:49.080
26 times 10 equals 260.
00:05:49.830 --> 00:05:56.700
When we multiply a number by 10, each digit now has a value 10 times greater.
00:05:57.260 --> 00:06:01.000
This means that the digits shift one place to the left.
00:06:01.520 --> 00:06:05.700
Let’s try solving a problem now that’s all about multiplying a number by 10.
00:06:07.960 --> 00:06:14.160
Complete: 10 multiplied by what equals 120.
00:06:15.480 --> 00:06:20.540
In this question, we’re multiplying a number by 10 to get the answer 120.
00:06:21.160 --> 00:06:23.090
But what is our missing number?
00:06:23.820 --> 00:06:31.140
Often, when we’re finding a missing fact in a multiplication like this, we could use division to help, the inverse operation.
00:06:31.620 --> 00:06:35.660
In other words, we could divide 120 by 10 to find the answer.
00:06:36.400 --> 00:06:38.880
But there’s another way to find our missing number.
00:06:39.240 --> 00:06:44.020
And that’s to use what we know about what happens to numbers when they’re multiplied by 10.
00:06:44.770 --> 00:06:51.310
We know that when a number is multiplied by 10, each of its digits becomes worth 10 times as large as it did before.
00:06:51.950 --> 00:06:58.790
So just as an example, if we multiply eight by 10, the digit eight is no longer worth eight ones.
00:06:59.390 --> 00:07:03.310
It’s now worth 10 times as much, eight 10s.
00:07:04.010 --> 00:07:08.850
We started off with a digit eight, and our answer also contains a digit eight.
00:07:09.120 --> 00:07:11.790
It’s just shifted one place to the left.
00:07:12.920 --> 00:07:19.090
Now, if we look at our calculation, we know that this is exactly what’s happened to the number we’ve multiplied by 10.
00:07:19.530 --> 00:07:22.760
Its digits must have shifted one place to the left.
00:07:23.100 --> 00:07:26.450
And the answer is 120.
00:07:26.620 --> 00:07:28.150
This is the number we’ve ended up with.
00:07:29.050 --> 00:07:34.490
The digit two in our answer has a value of two 10s or 20.
00:07:35.160 --> 00:07:37.660
But this is after it’s been multiplied by 10.
00:07:38.250 --> 00:07:41.130
What was it worth before it was multiplied by 10?
00:07:41.770 --> 00:07:47.130
Instead of two 10s, it must have had a value of two ones.
00:07:48.180 --> 00:07:52.390
The digit one in our answer has a value of 100.
00:07:52.460 --> 00:07:55.740
But this is 10 times greater than what it was to begin with.
00:07:56.070 --> 00:08:01.420
So in our starting number, the one must have had a value of one 10.
00:08:02.250 --> 00:08:05.740
It looks like the number that we’ve multiplied by 10 is 12.
00:08:06.240 --> 00:08:15.400
And as we’ve multiplied it by 10, each digit’s value has become 10 times as large and has shifted one place to the left.
00:08:17.470 --> 00:08:23.930
We’ve used our knowledge of how digits change when we multiply a number by 10 to help find the missing factor.
00:08:24.630 --> 00:08:27.360
10 times 12 equals 120.
00:08:27.730 --> 00:08:30.200
Our missing number is 12.
00:08:32.780 --> 00:08:44.850
Now that we understand what happens to a number when we multiply it by 10, we can use this to help us understand what happens to the numbers when we multiply them by 100 or 1,000.
00:08:45.610 --> 00:08:49.380
We know that 100 is the same as 10 times 10.
00:08:50.090 --> 00:08:56.090
So multiplying a number by 100 is the same as multiplying it by 10 and then 10 again.
00:08:57.130 --> 00:09:01.510
And we know 1,000 is the same as 10 times 100.
00:09:02.180 --> 00:09:05.590
And as we’ve just said, 100 is the same as 10 times 10.
00:09:06.330 --> 00:09:12.550
So if we multiply a number by 10 three times, this is the same as multiplying by 1,000.
00:09:13.530 --> 00:09:14.950
Now, how does this help us?
00:09:15.590 --> 00:09:18.260
It’s time to come back to our place value grid again.
00:09:18.770 --> 00:09:26.970
We know that shifting a digit from one column to the next one on the left is the same as multiplying it by 10 or making it 10 times greater.
00:09:27.670 --> 00:09:38.370
So if we want to multiply a number by 100, which we’ve said is the same as multiplying by 10 and then 10 again, this is the same as two jumps to the left.
00:09:39.080 --> 00:09:53.090
So if we want to find the answer to 13 times 100, for example, the digit one, which was worth one 10, is going to shift once, twice and is now worth 1,000.
00:09:53.900 --> 00:10:03.990
And the digit three, which is worth three ones to begin with, is going to shift one, two places to the left and is now worth three 100s.
00:10:04.680 --> 00:10:08.630
And we’re going to need two zeros to show our two empty columns.
00:10:09.930 --> 00:10:14.990
We started with the number 13, and look how our answer contains the digits one and three.
00:10:15.630 --> 00:10:20.010
13 multiplied by 100 equals 1,300.
00:10:20.800 --> 00:10:25.180
And I’m sure you can work out what happens if we want to multiply a number by 1,000.
00:10:25.600 --> 00:10:33.940
If we want to find the answer to 27 times 1,000, we’re going to need to multiply each digit by 10 and then 10 again and then 10 again.
00:10:34.460 --> 00:10:39.460
Our two digit is now going to be worth two lots of 10,000 or 20,000.
00:10:39.910 --> 00:10:46.690
And if we shift the seven digit three places to the left, it’s now going to be worth seven 1,000s.
00:10:48.050 --> 00:10:55.750
27 multiplied by 1,000 equals 27,000.
00:10:56.180 --> 00:11:02.070
So you can see that the methods we use to multiply a number by 10, 100, or 1,000 are all linked.
00:11:02.700 --> 00:11:07.880
Let’s answer some questions where we have to multiply some numbers by 100 or 1,000 now.
00:11:10.240 --> 00:11:13.980
Calculate 100 multiplied by 96.
00:11:15.090 --> 00:11:22.200
From our knowledge of multiplication, we know that we can multiply two numbers in different orders and they’ll still give the same answer.
00:11:22.890 --> 00:11:27.180
So we could think of this multiplication as 96 times 100.
00:11:27.920 --> 00:11:36.180
To solve this problem, we can use what we know of place value to help us because special things happen to the digits in a number when they’re multiplied by 100.
00:11:36.900 --> 00:11:39.150
Let’s use place value counters to help us here.
00:11:39.450 --> 00:11:45.380
The number 96 is made up of nine 10s and six ones.
00:11:45.940 --> 00:11:50.910
Let’s think about what happens to our nine 10s to begin with if we multiply these by 100.
00:11:51.420 --> 00:12:00.530
We know if we multiplied these nine 10s by 10, they’d become worth nine 100s and the digit nine would shift one place to the left.
00:12:01.030 --> 00:12:06.690
But we don’t want to multiply our nine 10s just by 10; we want to multiply them by 100.
00:12:07.400 --> 00:12:09.680
We need to multiply them by 10 again.
00:12:10.090 --> 00:12:13.190
They’re going to be worth nine 1,000s.
00:12:13.630 --> 00:12:17.990
And this is the same as shifting the digit nine two places to the left.
00:12:18.660 --> 00:12:21.350
Now we need to do the same with our six ones.
00:12:21.790 --> 00:12:26.450
Multiplying them by 100 means shifting them once, twice.
00:12:27.240 --> 00:12:30.800
Our six ones are now worth six 100s.
00:12:32.470 --> 00:12:38.280
If we multiply any number by 100, each of its digits becomes worth 100 times greater.
00:12:38.750 --> 00:12:41.350
And so they shift two places to the left.
00:12:41.920 --> 00:12:48.310
That’s how we know 100 multiplied by 96 equals 9,600.
00:12:50.640 --> 00:12:54.250
Calculate 12 multiplied by 1,000.
00:12:55.020 --> 00:12:59.130
The number 12 is made up of one 10 and two ones.
00:12:59.690 --> 00:13:07.950
But as soon as we multiply this number by 1,000, each of these digits is going to be worth 1,000 times as much as it does at the moment.
00:13:08.590 --> 00:13:18.910
We know that when we’re thinking about the place value in a number, as we move from right to left, each place to the left of another one is worth 10 times as much.
00:13:19.400 --> 00:13:24.340
So we know if we want to multiply a number by 10, we shift the digits one place to the left.
00:13:24.900 --> 00:13:29.730
To multiply by 100 is the same as shifting the digits two places to the left.
00:13:30.350 --> 00:13:35.330
And to multiply by 1,000 is the same as shifting the digits three places to the left.
00:13:35.900 --> 00:13:47.260
We need to multiply the number 12 by 1,000, so we can write it in our place value grid and then move our digits once, twice, three times to the left.
00:13:47.790 --> 00:13:53.520
And to show that they’ve moved, we better write in some zeros to mark the three empty columns.
00:13:55.770 --> 00:14:02.350
We know that multiplying a number by 1,000 is the same as multiplying it by 10, by 10 again, and then by 10 again.
00:14:03.010 --> 00:14:09.080
We also know that each time we multiply by 10, we just need to shift the digits of a number one place to the left.
00:14:09.410 --> 00:14:14.130
So to multiply by 1,000, that’s just a shift of three places to the left.
00:14:14.980 --> 00:14:19.650
12 multiplied by 1,000 equals 12,000.
00:14:23.000 --> 00:14:24.700
So what have we learned in this video?
00:14:25.650 --> 00:14:33.260
