Welcome to the third in our series of Very Easy Eleven Plus maths quizzes on Multiplication and Division. These can be testing at times – especially when dealing with large numbers. They often require pencils and paper for you to do your calculations but, you’ll be happy to hear, there are some simple ways to work many of them out.
Here’s an example: if you are asked to multiply a number by 95, then all you have to do is multiply it by 100, then multiply it by 5, and finally subtract the smaller number from the larger one:
8 x 95 = (8 x 100) - (8 x 5) = 800 - 40 = 760
See how easy it is when you can simplify the calculation. Read the helpful comments after each question for more tips which will help you revise for your exams. Good luck!
