300 m
To make it easier, remove the zero and add it again at the end:
5 x 6 = 30 add the zero = 300
8km
If 5000 steps = 4km
And 5000 x 2 = 10 000
Then 4 x 2 = 8km
510 million km²
Make it easier and only look at the numbers:
Canada = 10
Earth is 51 times Canada, so 51 x 10
When you multiply by ten, all you have to do is add a zero: 51 x 10 = 510
