### Complexity=1, Mode=2,5,10

Answer the following problems from memory.
12 × 9 =
25 × 9 =

### Complexity=1, Mode=9

Answer either from memory or by applying strategies.
16 × 9 =
Solution
When multiplying by 9, subtract your digit by 1 to get the tens digit.
So 6 - 1 = 5.
The sum of the digits in your answer adds up to 9. So if the tens digit is 5, then the ones digit is 9 - 5 = 4.

Alternate strategy: When multiplying by 9, just multiply by 10 and subtract the number. In this case, we have
6 × 9 =
6 × 10 - 6 =
60 - 6 =
54

Alternate strategy: Put both hands in front of you with all 10 fingers out. Take finger #6 and curl it. You'll see 5 fingers to your left and 4 fingers to your right. See how this gives you the answer of 54?
29 × 8 =
Solution
When multiplying by 9, subtract your digit by 1 to get the tens digit.
So 8 - 1 = 7.
The sum of the digits in your answer adds up to 9. So if the tens digit is 7, then the ones digit is 9 - 7 = 2.

Alternate strategy: When multiplying by 9, just multiply by 10 and subtract the number. In this case, we have
8 × 9 =
8 × 10 - 8 =
80 - 8 =
72

Alternate strategy: Put both hands in front of you with all 10 fingers out. Take finger #8 and curl it. You'll see 7 fingers to your left and 2 fingers to your right. See how this gives you the answer of 72?

### Complexity=1, Mode=4

Answer either from memory or by applying strategies.
14 × 8 =
Solution
To multiply by 4, multiply by 2, then multiply by 2 again.
8 × 2 × 2 =
16 × 2 =
32
24 × 2 =
Solution
To multiply by 4, multiply by 2, then multiply by 2 again.
2 × 2 × 2 =
4 × 2 =
8

### Complexity=1, Mode=6

Answer either from memory or by applying strategies.
16 × 5 =
Solution
To multiply by 6, multiply by 5 and add the number.
5 × 6 =
5 × 5 + 5 =
25 + 5 =
30
26 × 7 =
Solution
To multiply by 6, multiply by 5 and add the number.
7 × 6 =
7 × 5 + 7 =
35 + 7 =
42

### Complexity=1, Mode=leftover
