Directions: Using the digits 0 to 9 at most one time each, place a digit in each box to create a true equation with the greatest possible product.

### Hint

What two-digit numbers would be too low/high that when multiplied together would not make a three-digit product?

### Answer

The greatest possible product found so far is 54 x 18 which equals 972 but there may be one even greater. Let us know in the comments what you find.

We found a higher product. 78 x 12 = 936

I found a higher product. 78 x 96 = 7488

My student found 13 x 74 = 962

Would this be ok because your answer has digits that were used in the problem.

My student and I found 18 x 54 =972 oh yea! We loved this one!

i fond a higher number 50 x 18=950

i fond a higher number 50 x 18=950

We found 74×13=962

My 5th grade students solved this! 🙂

We found a solution of 83X12=996

Our class at FLEXSchool also got 972 = 18 x 54

Jaydon found 54*18=972 at Underwood School in Newton.

Our class at FLEXSCHOOL got 972 = 18 x 54 again, the very next period.

my amazing other class at FLEXSCHOOL also got 972 = 18 x 54 again, the very next period. sO HAHAHA INTERNET!

68 x 14 = 952 —- solved by one of my 5th grade students

78×12=936 and I loves it very fun

You used 3 eights and your product was a 4 digit number. It was supposed to be a 3 digit number.

52 x 18 = 936

This is so fun! I gave this to my students for a Friday Fun Challenge and these are the answers that we got without repeating digits…

936

962

972

910

68 x 14 = 952

My fifth graders found 78 x 12 = 936

Nice problem but my kindergarteners found 68 x 14 = 952

5th grade students found: 98×10=980

We did the same

there is one greater 97 x 86 + 8342 or 98 x 76 + 8342

The product can only be a 3 digit number and it has digits that you used in the problem.
