Next, let's check the solution.

**Box method of multiplication:**

Step 1: Make a table with the place values of the first factor at the top and the
place
values of the second factor on the left.

Step 2: Multiply the place values. Enter the products in the table.

Step 3: Sum up the values in the row of the table.

Step 4: Add the row sums. This will result in the product of the original numbers.

## Let's go on step by step

**Step 1**

Make a table with the place values of the first factor at the top and the
place
values of the second factor on the left.

12 x 11 = (
10 + 2
) x (
10 + 1
)

**Step 2**

Multiply the place values. Enter the products in the table.

Simplify the table as shown below.

**Step 3**

Sum up the values in the row of the table.

**Step 4**

Add the row sums. This will result in the product of the original numbers.

1,300 + 26 = 1,326

So, 26 × 51 = 1,326.
