Subject: mulitplications with fingers nines

when multipling using your fingers. First place your plams down counting left to right little pinky is on the left hand is one, left ring finger is two so on to right pinky is 10. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 now if you have 9x7= put the seven finger down. The numbers to the left of the finger are the tens so that is 60. Then count the fingers to the right of the folded finger, which is 3. So the answer is 63
