59x2= 118

Here are some ways to perform this calculation:

2(50+9)=2(50)+2(9)=100+18=118

2(60-1)=2(60)-2(1)=120-2=118

The standard algorithm is to multiply 2x9 getting 18; write the 8 and "carry" the 1. Then when you multiply 5x2 to get 10, you add the carried 1 to get 11. Then the answer is 118:

1
59
 2
--
118

Last, we can multiply the ones digit times 2 to get 18. Then we multiply the tens digit by 2 to get 10. 10 tens is 100; 100+18=118.

The easiest way to solve 59x2  would be by thinking of it like an addition problem.

59x2 is the same as adding 59 + 59

Now you can solve it like that and get 118, or if you want an easier way break down 59 into two easy numbers to add 50 and 9

So instead of doing 59 + 59 which may be hard for others all you have to do it add 50 twice and 9 twice then add the result:

50 + 50 = ?

9 + 9 = !

? + ! = answer

breaking it down this way will help you understand the concept, by the way:

50 + 50 = 100

9 + 9 =18

100 + 18 = 118

There's multiple ways to solve 59 x 2 that could help you in the future.

First off 59 x 2 means 59 + 59 = 118

A second way is 29.5 + 29.5 + 29.5 + 29.5 = 118

You can always simplify out the 59 in multiple ways. Taking the 59 into 50 and 9.

50+9+50+9, which also means 2[50 + 9]. If you know simple multiplication you'll get this easily.

2 times 50 would have to be 100. 2 times 9 would have to be 18

100 + 18 = 118. 

You can do a lot of form of equation but I'll also show you the basic way to do this.

   59            2 times nine is 18, make sure to put the one on top of 5.

x   2            2 times 5 is 10 but remember the one from the 2x9. Making it 11

---------

   118           Tada! Now you know the basic form and other forms of how to                                                                                                                                          

                                                                                            solve 59 x 2

Short answer:

59 x 2 = 118

Above I just showed you more ways  to solve it then the basic formation.

What is 59 x 2

The answer to 59 X 2 = 118. Multiplication is basically just addition, but instead of adding different numbers, you are adding the same number. So in this case with 59 X 2 , it would 59 + 59 which equals 118.

So your answer is 118.

59x2

59 x 2 is equal to 118

However you can look at it from several other ways as well!

You can add 59 twice. It will look something like 59+59 which will give you 118.

Or if its easier for you to visualize smaller numbers you can think of it as (40+19) + (40+19) or (50x2) + (9x2) which will all give you 118.

  59 x 2 = 118

   59

x  2

-----

118

It can also be this way:

9 x 2 =18 and 50 x 2= 100; therefore 100+18=118

59 X 2 

To solve this multiplication problems you can actually just add 59 with 59 because the equation wants you to multiply 59 with 2 which is basically just 59 + 59 

You can also write out the problem  so it would look like

   59

X   2    first multiply 2 with 9 

By multiplying 2 with 9 you should get

   1  

   59

X   2   you should have a 1 on top of the five because the was from the 18 . Now multiply

     8     2 with 5 also remember to add the 1 

by multiplying 2 with 5 and adding 1 to the answer , you should get

   59

X   2

= 118   which is your answer

Here is the long multiplication method to determine 59 x 2. The number written on the line drawn over 59 is the carryover. You proceed this way:

Multiply 9 and 2, the result is 18, write 8 and 1 is the carryover. In the next step multiply 5 and 2, the result is 10 to which the carryover of 1 has to be added giving 11. The final result is 118.

59 x 2 = 118.

There re several ways you can solve this problem, the easiest being a calculator, but if you want an explanation about what multiplying by two is, it is basically adding 59 to 59.

When you multiply by the number two you are essentially solving 59 + 59, which also gives you 118.
