# How do you evaluate 93\times 58?

Apr 5, 2017

Use the distributive property 5394 is the answer.

#### Explanation:

93 can be rewritten as 90 + 3

58 can be rewritten as 50 + 8

The problem can be rewritten as

$\left(90 + 3\right) \times \left(50 + 8\right)$ So the problem as four parts

1. $90 \times 50 = 4500$

2. $90 \times 8 = 720$

3. $3 \times 50 = 150$

4. $3 \times 8 = 24$

Now add all four of these together

$4500 + 720 + 150 + 24 = 5394$
