This example has been taken directly from the solution given by Basic Math Decoded to the formulated problem.

**65984 × 736**

**Place one number above the other aligned to the right. Draw a line under the bottom number.**

65984

__× 736__

**Multiply the number 65984 by the digit 6 and place the answer below the line aligned to the right.**

Multiply the digits 6 and 4 (6 × 4 = 24).

This number is larger than 9, so place the 2 above the column on the left to be added in the next step and place the 4 below the line.

Multiply the digits 6 and 8 (6 × 8 = 48). Add the 2 to the answer which equals 50.

This number is larger than 9, so place the 5 above the column on the left to be added in the next step and place the 0 below the line and to the left of the other digits.

Multiply the digits 6 and 9 (6 × 9 = 54). Add the 5 to the answer which equals 59.

This number is larger than 9, so place the 5 above the column on the left to be added in the next step and place the 9 below the line and to the left of the other digits.

Multiply the digits 6 and 5 (6 × 5 = 30). Add the 5 to the answer which equals 35.

This number is larger than 9, so place the 3 above the column on the left to be added in the next step and place the 5 below the line and to the left of the other digits.

__6__**5**904

Multiply the digits 6 and 6 (6 × 6 = 36). Add the 3 to the answer which equals 39.

This number is larger than 9, but there are no more columns, so place the answer below the line and to the left of the other digits.

__× 73__

__6__**39**5904

**Multiply the number 65984 by the digit 3 and place the answer in a new row below the last one, moving one place to the left.**

**This is because you are really multiplying the number 65984 by 30, which is the same that multiplying by 3 and by 10. Some books suggest write zeroes instead of blank spaces, but it is the same when you add all the partial multiplications, at the end.**

Multiply the digits 3 and 4 (3 × 4 = 12).

This number is larger than 9, so place the 1 above the column on the left to be added in the next step and place the 2 below the line in the corresponding row.

**Multiply the number 65984 by the digit 7 and place the answer in a new row below the last one, moving one place to the left.**

**This is because you are really multiplying the number 65984 by 700, which is the same that multiplying by 7 and by 100. Some books suggest write zeroes instead of blank spaces, but it is the same when you add all the partial multiplications, at the end.**

Multiply the digits 7 and 4 (7 × 4 = 28).

This number is larger than 9, so place the 2 above the column on the left to be added in the next step and place the 8 below the line in the corresponding row.
