  9 |7 4 7 9
     |0
     ----
      7 4
      6 7

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

Right. You have made a mistake: You see that "67" under the 74. That is not a multiple of 9.

I think that you thought that  9 * 7 was 67, but actually 9 * 7 = 63.

Do you want to try that bit of it again?

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

Okay I will give you a hint: 9 * 8 = 72.

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

I realise that I have put a * instead of an x.

I should have written 9 x 8 = 72    and   9 x 7 = 63

In computer programming the asterisk is often used instead of x

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

The use of "63" there is wrong because the multiple is too low. Try again.

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

I think I will tell you the answer to that bit of it which is that 9 x 8 = 72

So you get  74 - 72 = 2

I do agree that you do need to practice tables, but how can I help with that online ?

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

Okay so we have:
      0  8 
    ---------------
9 | 7 4 7 9
     0
     ---
     74
     72
     ---
       2

What do we need to do next?

The rest of it is easier because the numbers happen to be quite low.

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

6 x 7  is not 35.

All of the rest of those tables were correct though. Well done. So do you want to try again with 6 x 7 ?

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

No. 6 x 7 = 42.

I have thought of an idea. You could take a note of any times table that you cannot do
correctly and focus your attention on those ones perhaps.

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

Sorry about that. Sometimes I am writing my next post and during that time you are doing yours.
When I post mine I see yours after I have submitted mine. Then I see that my post no longer makes sense.
But yes your answer in #643 was correct it is 42. This is one that you are going to have to focus on a bit more.

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

Right how about we just finish off that division.

The situation was that we have 27 left and we need a multiple of 9 for that.

What number do you think we should choose ?

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

is 3 right?

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

Yes 3 x 9 = 27.

So the "3" bit of that goes at the top  (so that becomes  083 .... ).

Now the subtraction  27 - 27 = 0 

So all we have now is  9 which is dropped down with an arrow.

Now we need a multiple of 9 which equals 9. Any comment ?
