# Tricks for Doing faster Multiplication!

These are the best tricks and tips that, if you seriously take time to read these, practice them, and put them to use, you will see better grades, faster completion, and less mistakes. We have categorized them by the course or subject in which they are most useful. These tricks were presented to students by Jairaj Prasad (Administrator), at the last ‘Maths Convention’, on Saturday.

Here are the following 2 tricks for ‘Multiplication’, that will make Mathematics easier for you! Read and Practice them as much as you can, and there is no standard boundary, you can learn them even if you’re interested in learning them!

## Trick #1: Ignore the trailing zeros

What this means is that if you have a number such as 250, pretend it is just 25. Once you do the multiplication, you just add the zero back to the end of your answer. This works for any number of zeros. 250000, 250, and 25000000 should all be treated the same as 25. Just remember to add the respective amount of zeros to the end of your answer. However, you cannot simplify a problem when the zeros are in the middle. You can only use this for trailing zeros (zeros at the far right side). For example, 205 must be thought of as 205. This cannot be reduced to anything smaller. On the contrary, 2050 can be treated as 205, because there was one trailing zero. This helps quite a bit.
