Some Special type

When sum of unit digit is 10 and remaining digit is same.

43×47 = 4 × ( 4+1 ) / 3×7
= 4×5/21
20/21
Ans = 2021

72×78 = 7×8 / 2×8
= 56/16
Ans = 5616

104 × 106 = 10× ( 10+1 ) / 4×6
= 10 × 11/24
= 110/24
Ans = 11024

When sum of ten's digit is 10 and unit digit is same

46 × 66
= ( 4×6 ) +6 / 6×6
= 24 + 6/36
= 30/ 36
Ans = 3036

83 × 23
= ( 8×2 ) +3 / 3×3
= 19/09
Ans = 1909

92 × 12
= ( 9×1 ) + 2/2 × 2
= 11/04
Ans = 1104

When unit digit is 5 in both the numbers and difference between both number is 10.

75 × 65
=  6 × ( 7+1 ) / 75
=  48/75
Ans = 4875

45 × 35
= 3 × ( 4+1 )/75
= 15 /75
Ans = 1575

105 × 95
= 9 × ( 10+1 ) / 75
= 99/75
Ans = 9975

Ques 3. 11111112222222 = ?
Sol:
No of digit in the multiplier is 7 then let n=7;
Now Just multiply the digit 2 from 1 to 7 time & arrange them from extreme left to right in ascending order,you will get like this:
14 12 10 8 6 4 2
and now just subtract one from n.like this n=7,so n-1=6.
Multiply the digit 2 from 1 to 6 time & arrange them from just right after it,you will get like this:
2 4 6 8 10 12
Now placing both outcome like this & add the carry
2 4 6 8 10 12 14 12 10 8 6 4 2
        8+1/0+1/2+1/4+1/2+1

2 4 6 9 1 3 5 3 0 8 6 4 2

Ques 4. 1111111✘5555555 = ?
Sol:
No of digit = 7
Now Just multiply the digit 5 from 1 to 7 time & arrange them from extreme left to right in ascending order,you will get like this:
35 30 25 20 15 10 5
Just right after it perform same action but in descending order & till 6 times only.like this:
5 10 15 20 25 30
Now placing together ,just add the carry
5 10 15 20 25 30 35 30 25 20 15 10 5
