I am trying to learn how to multiply large numbers in columns in my head as in
But I keep getting it wrong. Would anyone be so nice as to look at the attachments in this post and figure out how stupid I am being, then tell me the right way to do it? I was getting on ok with my workbook up until this point. It goes ok when I do like 76 x 43 but when I go into triple digits or more I just get it plain wrong all the time. Now I know i could use a calculator but that would not be cultivating true Math skills.
Please help. I'm from Essex you know....
