Multiplying and Dividing Numbers by Power of 10 Worksheets

Before continuing with multiplication it might be wise to review place value.

Quick Place Value Review

Because we use a Base-10 number system, multiplying by 10 or 100 (or any multiple of 10) is fairly easy.

As the picture below shows, each place has a value 10 times that of the place immediately to the right

If necessary, review place value before proceeding with the multiplication methods below.

Multiplying an Integer by 10

Multiply integers by 10 by moving the digits one place to the left and adding one zero.
 HTO       
043 x 10  
=430    

Multiplying an Integer by 100

Multiply integers by 100 by moving the digits two places to the left and adding two zeros.
 THTO       
0059x100
=5900    

Quick Way: count the zeros and put them to right of the integer being multiplied.
e.g. 34 x 100 = 3400

Caution: Highlight to your children that multiplying by 10 or 100 can be more than just adding zeros as this can lead to problems when multiplying decimals. e.g. where calculating 1.4 x 10 = 1.40 could incorrectly result. Stress the change in place value of each numeral as it moves to the left.
