To multiply and divide by 10, 100, 1000, etc., write the digits in their place value columns. To multiply, move the digits to the left (replacing the numbers on the right with zeros) and to divide move them to the right (putting in a decimal point, and any zeros necessary for the place value).

Multiplication and division by whole numbers in general can be carried out by combining this technique with a knowledge of the multiplication tables up to 10.

The Battle of Russia Pt. 7 of 9
The Battle of Russia from the War Classics Collection. "Here we discover Russia's valiant resistance to invasion throughout its history and how that strength of character was key to their determination to prevail against the seemingly unstoppable forces of Nazi Germany in the bloodiest battles of World War II. The film is a wonderful compilation of authentic newsreel footage from both the US Signal Corps and various Soviet resources."

The Enlightenment had typically expressed, on the one hand, the soul and imagination and, on the other, reason and intelligence in terms of incompatible opposites. Not so Delacroix:

What are the soul and the intelligence when separated? The pleasure of naming and classifying is the fatal thing about men of learning. They are always overreaching themselves and spoiling their game in the eyes of those easy-going, fai

Official language about informal carers is at variance with the way we normally talk about family life. How many children or young people who care â€“ for parents or other relatives â€“ would spontaneously label themselves a â€˜young carerâ€™? How many parents would describe their son or daughter in this way? How many people who frame census questions would have thought of including a question to find out, until â€˜young carerâ€™ became a category like â€˜disabilityâ€™ or â€˜ageâ€™ that censu

Western society is increasingly preoccupied with concerns about risk, so much so that some sociologists now define it as â€˜risk societyâ€™ (Beck, 1992). It is argued that people in general are experiencing heightened levels of anxiety in response to rapid technological and social change. News stories in the media are filled with warnings and dire predictions for the future. This is particularly true when the potential consequences appear to be both catastrophic and difficult to predict, such

The Keeling curve is the plot showing the trend in rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations since 1958 recorded at Mauna Loa in Hawaii. The story of atmospheric CO2 in the last 50 years is a relentless rise derived from human use of hydrocarbons and, as I write this in 2008, the annual mean concentration is 383 parts per million (ppm). When Keeling first collected his CO2 data he travelled around making the measurements at widely spaced locations â€“ but he saw t
