How To Multiply On Your Fingers And Thumbs
Any fingers that are held down count as 10 and get added together. So in our example we have two fingers down on the left hand and four fingers down on the right hand, a total of six fingers down and since each finger counts as ten that's a total of 60.
Thenumber of fingers that remain standing on each hand now get multiplied together. On the left hand we have three fingers standing and on the right hand we have one finger standing, so we multiply 3 by 1, which is 3.
So this math multiplication trick gives 63 as the result of multiplying 7 by 9, which is the correct answer. Because7 x 9 = 63.
