Step 1: Ascribe values
- In each hand, ascribe a value from 6 to 10 to each finger
Step 2: How to multiply
Choose the numbers to multiply. Example: 7x8
Put together the fingers whoses values you want to multiply.
Now count the touching fingers and the ones below them. The number you get will be the tens. Example: 5
Now multiply the fingers above the ones touching of the left hand and the ones in the right hand. The number you get will be the units. Example: 3x2=6
**In some cases you will get a number of units bigger than nine, in that case sum both quantities**
- Touching fingers + the ones below -> 3
- Fingers above the ones touching in left hand -> 3
3 x 4 = 12
- Fingers above the ones touching in the right hand -> 4
Now we've got 3 tens and 12 units -> + 12 (units)
42 (final result)
