Time Management is the key and undoubtedly the most essential aspects of preparation of all sort of competitive exams. During Exam, every student feels that he/she know how to solve each and every question but the key is, how to solve these question in 2 hours. In this post, we are providing you some Time Saving Multiplication tricks for making your calculation faster.

**Multiplication by 5, 25 & 125**

**1. For multiplication by 5**

As we know that 5=10/2. Multiply the given number by 10 and then divide it by 2.

**For example**: 3568 x 5 = 35680/2 = 17840.

The adoption of this method saves 5 seconds per question. It means if you apply this method for solving all questions in your exam, you will easily save even 4 to 5 minutes that helps you attempt at least 5 more questions. This itself may make all the difference to your chances of selection.

**2. For multiplication by 25**

Similarly, We know 25=100/4. So multiply the figure given by 100 and divide it by 4.

**For Example**3568 x 25 = 356800/4=89200.

**3. For multiplication by 125**

We know 125=1000/8. So multiply the figure given by 1000 and divide it by 8.

**For Example**3568 x 125 = 3568000/8 = 446000. Alternatively, if we write 125 as 100 + 25, it is correct. So, multiplication by 125 can be treated as multiplication by 100 and add to this figure one- fourth of itself (because 25 is one-fourth of 100).

**4. For multiplication by 11, 21, 31 etc**

It can be treated as multiplication by 10+1, 20+1, 30+1, etc..

**For Example**3568 × 11 3568 X (10+1) = 39248

**5. Multiplication by 19, 29, 39 etc**

It can be treated as multiplication by (20 - 1), (30-1), (40-1) etc...

**For Example**3568 x 19 = 3568 x 20 – 3568 = 67792
