Multiplication is nothing but the repeated process of addition. We can express the multiplication as the repeated addition of the same number. It is one of the arithmetic operations. The symbol of multiplication is “x”. Multiplying a 1-Digit Number means multiplying one-digit number by another one-digit number. Students can find the detailed process of multiplying two 1-digit numbers along with the solved examples in the below-mentioned sections of this page.

## How to Multiplying Two 1-Digit Numbers?

When you multiply two or more numbers, the result obtained is called the product. The two operands of multiplication are multiplier and multiplicand. At first, we will learn the process of multiplying 1-digit numbers. One digit numbers are numbers below 10. Check the simple process below.

- At first, students have to take two one-digit numbers to find their product.
- Write the numbers one after the other in two different columns.
- Include into “x” symbol before the second number.
- Draw a horizontal line below it.
- Remember the multiplication table of the first or second number to get the product.
- Write the product number in the third column after equal to symbol.

**Example:**

5 x 7

5 x 7 can be read like 5 times 7

Here 5 is multiplicand and 7 is the multiplier

5 x 7 = 35

So, 5 is the product.

The addition fact is 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 35 which is same as 5 multiplied by 7.

Students can learn Multiplication Tables of the starting numbers i.e from 1 to 20 on this site.

The result 48 is called the product.

We can read 6 multiplied by 8 is equal to 48.

Here, 6 is the multiplicand, 8 is the multiplier and 48 is the product.

6 and 8 are also known as the factors of 48.

**Example 2:
**Multiply 7 by 3

**Solution:
**Arrange the numbers 7 and 3 in the column form.

Mentally read the multiplication table of 7. and get 7 times 3 is 21.

We can read 7 multiplied by 3 is equal to 21

Here, 21 is the product, 7 is the multiplicand and 3 is the multiplier.

7 and 3 are also known as the factors of the number 21.

**Example 3:
**Find the product of the following one-digit numbers?

(a) 2 by 1

(b) 9 x 4

**Solution:
**(a) 2 by 1

We can read as 2 multiplied by 1 is 2.

Here, 2 is the product, 2 is the multiplicand, 1 is the multiplier.

(b) 9 x 4

List the numbers in two different columns.

Mentally read the 9 multiplication table to find 9 times 4 is 36.

We can read it as 9 multiples by 4 is equal to 36.

Here, 9 is the multiplicand, 4 is the multiplier and 36 is the product.

The numbers 9 and 4 are the factors of 36.
