**Ms. Sue**, Saturday, May 30, 2009 at 9:25pmI don't know of any easier way.

Believe me, the practice will help you for a long time. You should know the multiplication tables as well as you know your own name.

**MathMate**, Saturday, May 30, 2009 at 11:18pmBrian, glad that you asked.

All you need to do is to look at the question this way:

92x95

92=100-8

95=100-5

92*95

=(100-8-5)||5*8

=87||40

=8740

(The || means stick the numbers together)

Try another example:

98*94

=(100-2-6)||2*6

=9212

With a little practice, you do not have to write them down and do the calculation mentally.

**Damon**, Sunday, May 31, 2009 at 5:02amWhat MathMate did:

92*95

(100-8)(100-5)

10,000 - 500 - 800 + 40

8740

or my way

95 (100 - 8)

9500 - 760

8740
