Lesson

Let's remember how the numbers are affected when we multiply and divide by 10.

Find 8\times 10.

Worked Solution

Idea summary

When we are multiplying our number by 10, it's the same as moving each of the digits to the left one place value position. Doing this will mean we also add a zero to the number as a zero place-holder.

We do the opposite for division, so when we divide by 10, we move each of the digits one place value to the right, just like this example.\begin{aligned} 230 \times 10 &= 2300 \\ 2300 \div 10 &= 230 \end{aligned}
