Here are some methods to solve multiplication facts if you happen to forget a product.
Method 1: Every multiplication fact is like an extended addition fact.
Practice these problems using Method 1:
Method 2: If you cannot remember the answer the problem can sometimes be made easier by switching the factors using the commutative property of multiplication.
Method 3: If the factors of a problem are too complicated, you can split one into 2 easier numbers that add up to that factor. Multiply both parts by the second factor, and then add. This is the Distributive Property of Multiplication.
*0 and 1 are not included because any number times 0 is 0 and any number times 1 is itself.
