**An easy way to multiply by 11**

11 X 42 = 462

This is obtained by

First digit of the number : 4

Adding the two digits: 4+2 :6

Last digit of the number: 2

So, the answer is 462 !!

Let's try another one.

11X48

Here, 4+8 = 12, its greater than 9, so add a carry to the first number

First Digit: 4

Last Digit of Adding the digits 8+4: 2 (carry 1)

Last digit: 8

So the answer(don't forget the carry)

528!
