# Multiplication by 10, 100, and 1000

When we multiply whole numbers by 10, 100, 1000, we simply rewrite the numbers and put some extra zeros at the end.

Rules for the multiplication by 10, 100 and 1000.

• If we multiply a whole number by a 10, then we write one zero at the end.

• If we multiply a whole number by a 100, then we write two zeros at the end.

• If we multiply a whole number by a 1000, then we write three zeros at the end.

Multiply 47 × 10
