How to multiply any two digits number by 11 [Math Tips & Tricks]

For example, you want to find the product of 45 and 11. One way to find it would be to multiply 45 by 10 and then add 45 on the result. There is, however, a simple trick that’ll do the job for any two digits number. To find out the result, write the first digit followed by the addition of the first and second digit, followed by the second digit.


45 x 11 = 4(4+5)5 = 495
