# Lesson 9 Recording Partial Products: One-digit and Three- or Four-digit Factors

• Let’s analyze and try an algorithm that uses partial products.

Which one doesn’t belong?

## Activity 1 An Algorithm for Noah

1. Noah drew a diagram and wrote expressions to show his thinking as he multiplied two numbers.

How does each expression represent Noah’s diagram? Be prepared to share your thinking with a partner.

2. Later, Noah learned another way to record the multiplication, as shown here.

Make sense of each step of the calculations and record your thoughts. Be prepared to explain Noah’s steps to a partner.

3. Complete the diagram to find the value of . Use Noah’s recording method to check your work.

## Problem 1

Noah and Mai want to find the value of . They recorded their steps in different ways, as shown.

1. How are Mai’s and Noah’s notation alike? How are they different?

2. Use a diagram to show what each of the partial products 72, 80, 3,200 and 24,000 represent. Then, find the value of .

## Problem 2

Find the value of each expression. For at least one expression, use the algorithm that Noah used. Show your reasoning.

## Problem 1

The diagram and calculations show two ways for finding the value of .
