It's hard to show work when typing but I'll give it my best shot.

      43 <- Carries from the 5
      54 <- Carries from the 6
   x  56
    4182 <- Product with the 6
 + 34850 <- Product with the 50

I've shown the carries I used so that you can figure out exactly how
this works.  If you don't quite follow, send us a note.
