Maths Shortcut Tricks (Multiplication – 01)

In this tutorial, we will try to learn a simple but effective shortcut technique for multiplying any number by 11 without using a pen or pencil or evening writing on paper.


Lets first start with any no. multiplied by 11.

3152 x 11 = ?

The first digit and last digit of the answer will remain constant 3 and 2.

Just keep adding the consecutive No.s

∴ 3152 x 11 = 34672


Example:1

53241 x 11 = ?
First Digit 5 as it is
5+3 = 8
3+2 = 5
2+4 = 6
4+1 = 5
Last Digit 1 as it is
∴ 53241 x 11 = 585651


Example:2

26134 x 11 = ?
First Digit 2 as it is
2+6 = 8
6+1 = 7
1+3 = 4
3+4 = 7
Last Digit 4 as it is
∴ 26134 x 11 = 287474


Example:3

23586 x 11 = ?
First Digit 2 as it is
5+3 = 5
3+2 = 8
2+4 = 13
4+1 = 14
Last Digit 6 as it is
Now apply balancing rule
∴ 23586 x 11 = 259446


Example:4

38429 x 11 = ?
First Digit 3 as it is
2+6 = 11
6+1 = 12
1+3 = 6
3+4 = 11
Last Digit 9 as it is
Now apply balancing rule
∴ 38429 x 11 = 422719


Let try this trick on a bigger number : –

6274598712 x 11 = ?

6274598712 x 11 = 69020585832
