Multiplying a Three-Digit Number by a One-Digit Number: Area Models
00:00:09.080 --> 00:00:15.200
In this video, we’re going to learn how to multiply a two- or a three-digit number by a one-digit number.
00:00:15.980 --> 00:00:18.490
And we’re going to use area models to help.
00:00:19.290 --> 00:00:27.340
This involves writing the larger number in expanded form and then applying what’s called the distributive property.
00:00:28.290 --> 00:00:32.460
Let’s imagine that we want to multiply together 16 and four.
00:00:33.350 --> 00:00:36.640
One way of modeling this would be as an array.
00:00:37.660 --> 00:00:42.640
Here, we’ve got four rows, and there are 16 squares in each row.
00:00:42.640 --> 00:00:48.600
And we know that four lots of 16 is the same as 16 lots of four.
00:00:49.410 --> 00:00:54.730
We also know that if we want to make this calculation easier, we can split up our array.
00:00:55.710 --> 00:01:04.440
There are lots of ways we could partition or decompose the number 16, but one ways to split it up into 10 and six.
00:01:05.180 --> 00:01:08.540
Let’s model this on our array by using different-colored squares.
00:01:09.210 --> 00:01:21.580
We can see now that 16 times four is the same as calculating 10 times four, six times four, and then adding the two parts together.
00:01:22.780 --> 00:01:24.700
Can you see why we might want to do this?
00:01:25.330 --> 00:01:29.280
We might not know our four times table up to 16 times four.
00:01:30.000 --> 00:01:33.560
But we do know what 10 times four and six times four are.
00:01:34.370 --> 00:01:39.310
We’ve split a fact that we don’t know into two facts that we do know.
00:01:40.220 --> 00:01:46.260
The way that we can split up a multiplication like this is called the distributive property of multiplication.
00:01:47.280 --> 00:01:52.290
Now notice that, so far, we haven’t actually counted those squares in our array, have we?
00:01:53.200 --> 00:02:00.240
Although we’ve taken the time to lay them out neatly in rows, we could actually find out the answer without counting them at all.
00:02:00.950 --> 00:02:11.140
So we could just represent what we’ve got here using two rectangles or rather one rectangle that we then split into two.
00:02:12.080 --> 00:02:31.710
Because we know that the area of a rectangle, that’s the space inside it, is found by multiplying the length by the width, we can see that our first rectangle represents four times 10 or 10 times four and our second rectangle has an area worth four times six or six times four.
00:02:32.710 --> 00:02:46.390
And because of everything we know about the distributive property of multiplication, we know that the area of the whole rectangle is worth 10 times four plus six times four or 16 times four all together.
00:02:47.410 --> 00:02:49.380
Let’s quickly go through and find the answer then.
00:02:50.030 --> 00:03:02.900
We know that 10 times four equals 40, six times four equals 24, and if we add 40 and 24 together, we get 64.
00:03:04.320 --> 00:03:08.650
So we can say 16 times four equals 64.
00:03:09.600 --> 00:03:18.000
Now how could we apply this sort of area model to help us multiply not just with two-digit numbers like this, but with three-digit numbers?
00:03:19.310 --> 00:03:22.740
What’s 257 multiplied by five?
00:03:23.580 --> 00:03:30.260
This time, we’re multiplying a three-digit number by a single digit, and we can use the same method as before.
00:03:30.520 --> 00:03:39.060
So to begin with, we can think about how to decompose or partition the number 257 to make the whole thing a lot easier.
00:03:39.960 --> 00:03:46.010
There are lots of ways we could split up the number 257 but with a three-digit number like this.
00:03:46.320 --> 00:03:55.880
Perhaps the quickest way is to think about it in expanded form, in other words, split it up into its hundreds, tens, and ones.
00:03:56.640 --> 00:04:01.670
In the hundreds place, we have the digit two, so this has a value of 200.
00:04:02.880 --> 00:04:09.110
In the tens place, we have the digit five; this is worth 50, five 10s.
00:04:09.750 --> 00:04:11.700
And there’s a seven in the ones place.
00:04:12.550 --> 00:04:16.540
257 is the same as 200 plus 50 plus seven.
00:04:16.680 --> 00:04:19.830
And we can use this to help us solve the multiplication.
00:04:20.550 --> 00:04:31.150
Now, if we were to represent 257 multiplied by five or five times 257 as an area model, it might look like this.
00:04:31.760 --> 00:04:49.960
But once we’ve partitioned our number, we can split up our area model too because the total of 200 times five, 50 times five, and seven times five will be the same as 257 times five.
00:04:50.920 --> 00:04:53.330
First, we multiply the hundreds.
00:04:54.290 --> 00:04:56.620
What’s 200 times five?
00:04:57.300 --> 00:05:00.180
Well, we know that two times five equals 10.
00:05:00.920 --> 00:05:11.400
So two 100s multiplied by five must equal 10 100s, which we know is the same as one 1000.
00:05:12.760 --> 00:05:15.240
Now, we need to find the area of the next part of our model.
00:05:15.270 --> 00:05:16.980
We need to multiply the tens.
00:05:17.780 --> 00:05:20.140
What is 50 times five?
00:05:21.120 --> 00:05:23.720
Well, again, we can use a fact we already know to help us.
00:05:24.360 --> 00:05:27.370
Five times five equals 25.
00:05:28.260 --> 00:05:30.950
And we know that 50 is the same as five 10s.
00:05:31.830 --> 00:05:41.000
So we know five 10s times five must equal 25 10s, and 25 10s is 250.
00:05:42.390 --> 00:05:48.530
And we should know the fact already for the last part of our area model; seven fives are 35.
00:05:49.820 --> 00:05:57.540
Now, all we need to do is to find the total, and you might be able to add together 1000, 250, and 35 in your head.
00:05:58.010 --> 00:06:01.300
But if not, we could just use a standard written method.
00:06:02.120 --> 00:06:04.370
We have a total of five ones.
00:06:05.580 --> 00:06:12.690
There are eight 10s altogether, two 100s, and one 1000.
00:06:13.460 --> 00:06:37.320
So, although 257 multiplied by five seemed like a really difficult calculation at the start, by splitting up this three-digit number into its expanded form — in other words, its hundreds, its tens, and its ones — we could sketch an area model to help us because the distributive property of multiplication tells us that we can split up multiplication is like this to make them easier.
00:06:38.240 --> 00:06:44.220
257 times five equals 1285.
00:06:45.170 --> 00:06:49.090
Let’s have a go at solving some problems now where we can use area models to help.
00:06:50.980 --> 00:06:56.220
Pick the multiplication expression that matches this area model.
00:06:57.420 --> 00:07:14.480
Seven times 406, seven times 164, 146 times seven, 700 times 641, or 641 times seven.
00:07:15.710 --> 00:07:23.140
In the picture, we can see an area model, and we know that these are a way of helping us to visualize multiplications.
00:07:23.960 --> 00:07:28.980
They don’t tell us what the answer is, but they do give us an idea of how to get there.
00:07:29.910 --> 00:07:34.310
We’re asked to pick the multiplication expression that matches this model.
00:07:35.000 --> 00:07:37.310
And underneath, we’ve got five to choose from.
00:07:38.060 --> 00:07:40.340
So what’s this area model showing us?
00:07:40.760 --> 00:07:44.590
Firstly, we can see that this side of the rectangle is labeled seven.
00:07:45.480 --> 00:07:50.550
This tells us that one of the numbers we’re going to be multiplying by is going to be seven.
00:07:51.380 --> 00:07:57.010
Now, if we look at our possible answers, we can see that most of them do have seven as a factor.
00:07:57.710 --> 00:08:00.170
However, there’s one that doesn’t.
00:08:00.440 --> 00:08:06.030
So perhaps, the first thing we can do is to cross off 700 multiplied by 641.
00:08:06.370 --> 00:08:08.470
This isn’t the right answer at all.
00:08:09.100 --> 00:08:11.850
But what are we multiplying seven by?
00:08:12.270 --> 00:08:19.870
This is where our area model becomes interesting because we can see that it’s been split up into three parts.
00:08:20.590 --> 00:08:24.180
The length of the first part is labeled 100.
00:08:24.820 --> 00:08:35.000
And because we know that the area of a rectangle is worth its length multiplied by its width, we know that the area of this first part is 100 multiplied by seven.
00:08:36.100 --> 00:08:39.530
The length of our second part is labeled 40.
00:08:39.930 --> 00:08:43.620
So we know that the area of this part is 40 times seven.
00:08:44.450 --> 00:08:48.420
And we can see that the area of our last part is six times seven.
00:08:49.230 --> 00:08:55.560
So our area model seems to represent three multiplications, not one.
00:08:56.260 --> 00:09:04.150
But we know if we add these three partial products together, we can find the answer to an overall multiplication.
00:09:04.880 --> 00:09:13.170
100 plus 40 plus six equals 146.
00:09:13.860 --> 00:09:25.530
And so, by adding together 100 times seven, 40 times seven, and six times seven, we can find the answer to 146 times seven.
00:09:26.520 --> 00:09:33.930
This area model is exactly the sort of thing we could sketch if we wanted to find the answer to 146 times seven.
00:09:34.460 --> 00:09:39.130
It shows us how we could partition the three-digit number to make it easier to multiply.
00:09:40.030 --> 00:09:46.830
The multiplication expression that matches this area model is 146 times seven.
00:09:52.140 --> 00:09:56.260
Calculate 211 multiplied by three.
00:09:57.200 --> 00:10:02.380
In this question, we’re asked to multiply a three-digit number by a single digit.
00:10:03.190 --> 00:10:10.180
Now, when we learned our three times tables fact, we probably only learned them up to 10 times three or maybe 12 times three.
00:10:10.970 --> 00:10:15.160
How are we going to find out what 211 times three is?
00:10:16.150 --> 00:10:21.190
To help us, we could split 211 into smaller parts.
00:10:21.660 --> 00:10:26.790
Perhaps the quickest way to do this is to think about 211 in expanded form.
00:10:26.970 --> 00:10:30.860
In other words, what the hundreds, the tens, and the ones are worth in this number.
00:10:31.740 --> 00:10:37.470
We know that 211 has a two in the hundreds place, so that’s worth 200.
00:10:38.190 --> 00:10:41.560
The one in the tens place has a value of 10.
00:10:42.440 --> 00:10:46.810
And the one in the ones place, of course, is just worth a single one.
00:10:47.650 --> 00:10:54.420
So we can partition or decompose 211 into 200 plus 10 plus one.
00:10:55.410 --> 00:11:01.260
Now, how can we use this new split-up version of 211 to help us with this multiplication?
00:11:02.130 --> 00:11:05.270
We could show how using an area model.
00:11:05.880 --> 00:11:10.520
We know that we can find the area of a rectangle by multiplying its length by its width.
00:11:11.440 --> 00:11:17.340
And so this area model represents the calculation we want to find out, 211 multiplied by three.
00:11:18.140 --> 00:11:20.610
Now, what’s it going to look like if we split it up?
00:11:21.500 --> 00:11:22.830
Something like this.
00:11:23.440 --> 00:11:25.580
Notice how it’s still the same size.
00:11:25.900 --> 00:11:27.350
We’ve just split it up a little.
00:11:27.920 --> 00:11:32.260
The area of our first part is worth 200 times three.
00:11:33.320 --> 00:11:36.630
Our second part has an area of 10 times three.
00:11:37.560 --> 00:11:40.600
And our last part is worth one times three.
00:11:41.540 --> 00:11:49.780
And if we add these three partial products together, we can find the overall area, which is going to be the answer to our multiplication.
00:11:50.400 --> 00:11:52.440
First, let’s multiply the hundreds.
00:11:53.080 --> 00:12:00.970
We know that two times three is six, so 200 multiplied by three is going to be 600.
00:12:02.980 --> 00:12:07.800
Now, we multiply the tens and 10 times three equals 30.
00:12:08.850 --> 00:12:10.330
And finally, the ones.
00:12:10.540 --> 00:12:12.880
One times three equals three.
00:12:14.150 --> 00:12:19.460
And to find the overall answer, we just need to add together 600 plus 30 plus three.
00:12:19.950 --> 00:12:26.140
This is the sort of calculation we can do in our heads; it’s 633.
00:12:26.920 --> 00:12:41.320
We’ve multiplied a three-digit number by a single-digit number here by first partitioning our number into its hundreds, tens, and ones and then by using this to sketch an area model to help us see what we needed to do.
00:12:41.990 --> 00:12:46.600
We multiplied each part out separately and then added all the products together.
00:12:47.400 --> 00:12:52.590
211 multiplied by three equals 633.
00:12:56.100 --> 00:13:00.630
Calculate 145 multiplied by six.
00:13:01.500 --> 00:13:08.010
Now finding out what 145 sixes are isn’t the sort of fact that we already know in our heads.
00:13:08.560 --> 00:13:12.060
How are we going to multiply this three-digit number by six?
00:13:12.770 --> 00:13:27.480
We could represent this calculation by sketching an area model with a length worth 145, a width of six, and an area that represents the multiplication we need to solve.
00:13:28.570 --> 00:13:31.880
Now this is a bit tricky to try to work out all in one go.
00:13:32.690 --> 00:13:37.170
But is there a way that we could split up the number 145 to help us?
00:13:38.460 --> 00:13:46.450
We could write the number 145 in expanded form, showing what the hundreds, the tens, and the ones are worth.
00:13:47.300 --> 00:13:54.290
145 equals 100 plus 40 plus five.
00:13:54.970 --> 00:13:58.040
And we can split up our area models to show this.
00:13:58.610 --> 00:14:03.210
The area of our first part is worth 100 times six.
00:14:03.880 --> 00:14:07.350
Our second part is worth 40 times six.
00:14:07.980 --> 00:14:11.790
And the area of our last part is five times six.
00:14:12.470 --> 00:14:23.370
So if we want to solve 145 times six, we just need to add together 100 times six, 40 times six, and five times six.
00:14:24.210 --> 00:14:26.220
First, we can multiply the hundreds.
00:14:27.110 --> 00:14:30.800
100 multiplied by six — it’s quite quick to do this one.
00:14:31.050 --> 00:14:32.650
It’s 600.
00:14:34.810 --> 00:14:36.800
Next, we can multiply the tens.
00:14:37.470 --> 00:14:39.790
What’s 40 times six?
00:14:40.560 --> 00:14:43.990
Well, we can use a six times tables fact we already know to help us here.
00:14:44.450 --> 00:14:56.080
We know that four times six is 24, so four 10s times six equals 24 10s or 240.
00:14:56.870 --> 00:14:58.670
And finally, we multiply the ones.
00:14:58.920 --> 00:15:01.350
Five sixes are 30.
00:15:02.750 --> 00:15:06.940
So to find the overall answer, we just need to combine our three parts back together.
00:15:07.730 --> 00:15:19.630
The answer to 600 plus 240 plus 30 is going to have zero ones, seven 10s, and eight 100s.
00:15:20.550 --> 00:15:22.560
It’s 870.
00:15:23.280 --> 00:15:32.430
To find the answer to 145 times six, we split up 145 into its hundreds, tens, and ones.
00:15:33.230 --> 00:15:38.490
We multiplied each part by six separately and then combined them all back together again.
00:15:39.440 --> 00:15:43.810
145 times six equals 870.
00:15:47.000 --> 00:15:48.900
So what have we learned in this video?
00:15:50.220 --> 00:16:06.300
We’ve learned how to multiply a two- or three-digit number by a single digit by first writing the larger number in expanded form and then using the distributive property to help.
00:16:13.360 --> 00:16:17.120
We used area models to help us see what to do.
