Say you wish to find out what is 37*11

Separate 3 and 7 3—-7

Add 3+7= 10

Since the sum is greater than 9, you will add the ones digit to 3 which makes it 4 and carry the tens digit to the position between 3 and 7. The answer is 407.

If the sum of the digits is less than 9

Taking 25*11

2—5

2+5=7

Therefore answer is 275

Another tip that you will find useful is when it comes to squaring two digit numbers ending in 5.

Say for example you want the square of 25

Take the tens part and add 1 ( 2+1=3)

Multiple the tens part by the obtained number (2*3=6)

      Hi Shweta,
      You are not weak in math, its only your mindset towards the subject that makes you prone to this weakness. Take a new look at mathematics and you will definitely be able to understand what is being said.
      Also, maths is not a nightmare. Just approach it with a broad mind, step by step and you will excel in it.
