In this section, we learn a shortcut for multiplying large multi-digit whole numbers with trailing zeros. This technique greatly reduces the amount of time it takes to multiply when these scenarios occur. A trailing zero or trailing zeros are zeros that occur at the end of the number and are not interrupted by a non-zero digit. When we multiply two or more numbers with trailing zeros, we chop off the trailing zeros and multiply the resulting numbers. Once this is done, we attach the total number of trailing zeros between all factors to the end of the product.
