I 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.

Brian, 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.

What MathMate did:

92*95

(100-8)(100-5)

10,000 - 500 - 800 + 40

8740

or my way

95 (100 - 8)

9500 - 760

8740
