**Solution. **

**(i) 3.4 x 17**

Multiply the number without looking into the decimal points

3.4Ã—17 = 578

Mark the decimal point in the product to have one place of decimal as there in the given decimal

= 57.8

**(ii) 0.745 x 12**

Multiply the number without looking into the decimal points

745Ã—12 = 8940

Mark the decimal point in the product to have three places of decimal as there in the given decimal
