I'm confused on how to do the short multiplication method? 

My q was

52 x

38

__

 

?

 

But, the answer is 1976, but I'm not sure how it does that?

\(\begin{array}{rlll}&&5&2\\\times&&3&8\\-&-&-&-\\1&5&6&0\\&4&1&6\\-&-&-&-&\\1&9&7&6\\=&=&=&=\end{array}\)

If by short you mean doing this problem in your head then take 52 and multiply it by 30 which 1,560. Then take 52 and multiply it by 8 which is 416. Add the solutions you just got which will equate to 1,976 which is the correct answer.
