Multiplication Algorithm Using Squares with Diagonals

  Aside from the standard multiplication algorithm (algorithm really means steps or methods) that we already know, there is another method to do multiplication. That is, to place the numbers in squares. This method can be used for multiplying 2-digit numbers. We will call this method the Square Diagonal Multiplication Algorithm Steps in Multiplication Algorithm […]
