The answer is the three digit number

The 11 Rule

This is a quick way to multiply two digit numbers by 11 in your head.

  1. Separate the two digits in your mind.
  2. Add the two digits together.
  3. Place the number from Step 2 between the two digits. If the number from Step 2 is greater than 9, put the ones digit in the space and carry the tens digit.

Examples: 72 x 11 = 792

57 x 11 = 5 _ 7, but 5 + 7 = 12, so put 2 in the space and add the 1 to the 5 to get 627
