EXAMPLE:49 X 5(40 + 9) X 5(5 X 40) + (5 X 9)200 + 45= 245

STEPS1.Simplify the numbersIn this example, 101= 100 + 1, so: 17 X 101 = 17(100 + 1)2. Split the problem into two easier problems.Take the number outside the parentheses, & multiply it by each number inside the parenthses, one at a time. = (17 X 100) + (17 X 1)3. Add the products.At this point, you may be able to solve the two multiplications in your head & then add them up easily. = 1,700 + 17 = 1,717
