Multiplication Word problem : If the population of the world is growing at the rate of 1 person per second, find the increase in population in one year. Give your answer in figures and words.
Solution to Multiplication Word problem : Growth of population per second = 1
Growth of population per minute = 1 x 60 = 60
Growth of population per hour = 60 x 60 = 3600
Whenever there are zeros in the multiplying numbers, multiply the numbers without zeros and then put the number of zeros to the right side of the resulting number.
So, to find 60 x 60, first find 6 x 6 which is 36.Then put two zeros to the right of 36.
Thus 60 x 60 = 3600.
One year = 365 days = 365 x 24 hours
Multiplication of 365 with 24 is shown below.
Thus 365 x 24 = 8760.
Thus, Number of hours in one year = 8760.
Growth of population in one year = Growth of population per hour x Number of hours in one year = 3600 x 8760
Here, we find 876 x 36 first.
Thus, 876 x 36 = 31536.
So, 3600 x 8760 = 31536000
Thus, Growth of population in one year = 31536000 persons.
in words, three crores fifteen lakhs thirty six thousands.
or thirty one millions five hundred thirty six thousands.

Progressive Learning of Math : Multiplication Word Problem
Recently, I have found a series of math curricula (Both Hard Copy and Digital Copy) developed by a Lady Teacher who taught everyone from Pre-K students to doctoral students and who is a Ph.D. in Mathematics Education.
This series is very different and advantageous over many of the traditional books available. These give students tools that other books do not. Other books just give practice. These teach students “tricks” and new ways to think.
These build a student’s new knowledge of concepts from their existing knowledge. These provide many pages of practice that gradually increases in difficulty and provide constant review.
These also provide teachers and parents with lessons on how to work with the child on the concepts.
The series is low to reasonably priced and include
