Multiplication Math Trick

Some people might not know this but an easy way to do multiplication in your head is to break up numbers into chunks and multiply from right to left, not from left to right.  So for 192 * 6, just multiply 6*2 =12, 6*90=540, add that to 12=552, and and 6 *100=600, add that to 552=1152.    I’ve seen people try to do this from left to right, i.e. 6* 100, 6*90, 6*12, and it’s harder because of the order of carry digits over.
