Here’s an example of a **SPEED MATH** shortcut for **MULTIPLYING NUMBERS WITH LAST DIGIT SUM 10: (Mul) S10dx** from the **MULTIPLICATION** category.

**When can I use this method?**

For multiplying any 2-digit number with another 2-digit number such that the sum of the last digits of the multiplier and multiplicand = 10 and the remaining digits of multiplier are same as that of the multiplicand.

For multiplying any 3-digit number with another 3-digit number such that the sum of the last digits of the multiplier and multiplicand = 10 and the remaining digits of multiplier are same as that of the multiplicand.

You cannot use this method to multiply numbers with unequal number of digits, i.e. multiplying a 2-digit number with a 3-digit number.
