# Explain why the rule Naomi learned is true. (Use any connections you can make after completing ?

Naomi learned: “To multiply a whole number by ten, just place a zero at the end of the number.” For example, 5961×10, she says, is 59,610. She does not understand why this rule is true.

5961 => 5000 + 900 + 60 + 1

Multiplying by 10 moves digits one place to the left, so units become 10's, 100's become 1000's and 1000's become 10,000's

so, 5961 x 10 => 50000 + 9000 + 600 + 10

=> 59610
