Here’s an example of a SPEED MATH shortcut for MULTIPLYING NUMBERS WITH FIRST DIGITS SUM 1000 : (Mul) F1000dx from the MULTIPLICATION category.

### When can I use this method?

For multiplying any 4-digit number with another 4-digit number such that the sum of the initial digits of the multiplier and multiplicand = 1000 and the remaining digits of multiplier are same as that of the multiplicand.

For multiplying any 5-digit number with another 5-digit number such that the sum of the initial digits of the multiplier and multiplicand = 1000 and the remaining digits of multiplier are same as that of the multiplicand.

### Notes –

1. Notice the way the common digits are added.
2. When multiplying 4-digit numbers with common last digit, remember to write the RHS of the answer in 2-digit form by prefixing a zero, if the value is single digit, e.g. write ‘9’ as ‘09’.
3. When multiplying 5-digit numbers with last 2 digits common, remember to write the RHS of the answer in 4-digit form by prefixing zero(s), if the value is less than 4-digit, e.g. write ‘9’ as ‘0009’ or ‘21’ as ‘0021’ or ‘121’ as ‘0121’.
