$12 , 650$ tablets

#### Explanation:

When writing the equation out, always put the larger number on top. Then, multiply the numbers in the ones spot:

$6 \cdot 5 = 30$

Under the line you put the $0$ in the ones spot and add then put the $3$ above the tens spot and add them to the next equation which is:

$6 \cdot 7 = 42 + 3 = 45$

Now, keep multiplying along the $275$ with $6$ until there are no more numbers to multiply and then add the remaining numbers in front.
Repeat these steps with the $4$ in $46$ and put the numbers you get under the first numbers. Put a $0$ or an X in the ones spot under. Add the two numbers together and now you got $12 , 650$ tablets. See picture below: Apr 6, 2018
