Multiplying by 10

Multiply by 10 by moving the numbers one place to the left and adding one zero.
    H T O        
      4 3 x 1 0  
  = 4 3 0        

Multiplying by 100

Multiply by 100 by moving the numbers two places to the left and adding two zeros.
  T H T O        
      5 9 x 1 0 0
= 5 9 0 0        

Quick Way: count the zeros and put them to right of the number being multiplied.
e.g. 34 x 100 = 3400
