a formula for computing multiplication of numbers close to 100 Quantitative

eg: 87 * 94
94 is 6 less than 100
87 is 13 less than 100.
so 1st two digits are 87 - 6 = 79
last two digits are 13 * 6 = 78
therefore answer is 7978.
hope it is useful for us in the upcoming CAT.

The reason why the rule is different for multiplication by 11 and by 12 is obviously because the right digits are different. The right digit, we could call the Parent Index Number (PIN). Thus in 11, the PIN is 1 and in 12 it is 2. (In 13, it ...
