Hi, I've attached a page from a 4th grade book. Could you please tell me how to braille these multiplication problems, especially Step 4, which has carried numbers, cancelled numbers, and a comma in the answer? I found carried numbers in addition, but couldn't find anything about multiplication.
Hi Fran. Nemeth Code doesn't specify how to transcribe carried numbers in multiplication. However, the rule about carried numbers in addition is applied in multiplication problems. The carried numbers and cancelled numbers will go above the carried number line, which is the length of the separation line. Make sure you keep the columns aligned. Space must be left in the multiplier and multiplicand to accomodate the cancellation indicators. Space must also be left in the partial products above the comma that appears in Step 4. See the attached document. Dorothy
