Multiplication method

I got a video from some one which shows how the chinese do multiplication.

After studying the chinese method of calculation I have come out with a simple method of muliplication.

Both the videos are here.

Have a look at them.

This is how chinese do it.


This is how I do it.

The concept behind is this to put all numbers in the row and column format and then do the multiplication of each block and then add them in a systematic manner.
