Decimal Multiplication

Task and description from: @maths26772621

This could be extended in many different directions depending on the starting and target values. These could easily be set by the teacher or as I have done allow the pupils to select and in fact, I eventually had them create questions that their partner then had to solve which resulted in some tough questions. Quite quickly tweaks needed to be made like no multiplication by 1 but I wanted them to discover this “cheat”.  If the instructions potentially pose an issue, then you could set it up the way I have in the example but have them try to fill in the blanks for a few attempts?
