Welcome to Multiplying Decimals (Partial Products)

Step 1-You will multiply 3 ones times 5 hundredths. Your answer would be 15 hundredths.

Step 2- You will now multiply 3 ones times 7 tenths. Your answer will be 210 hundredths or 2.10. *Think 3 x 7 =21, then remember that there is one digit behind the 7. That digit represents a zero after 21 (which will be 210).

Step 3-Multiply 3 ones times 2 ones. Your answer will be 600 hundredths or 6.00. Think 3 x 2 = 6, then remember that there are two digits behind the 2. Those digits represent zeros behind the 6 (which will be 600).

Step 4-You will then add up all of your answers to get the final product of 8.25. *Remember to bring your decimal straight down when adding.
