## Step 1: Create a Box

create a box with with smaller squares in it by the digits... so like 8675 times 45 so its 4 digits by 2 digits then put lines through them like pic# 2

## Step 2:

then put the numbers on the top and the left sides of the box.

## Step 3:

so now you multiply any number that intersect with the row and coloumn

## Step 4:

then just add

## Step 5:

then you see that the numbers are in order from the line so its 2426508638

## Step 6:

so 560913 x 4326=2426508638
