Reason: It is better than array multiplier and sequential multiplier which are unable to handle both positive and negative multiplier uniformly


Reason: For Ex:  if  you multiply these numbers 0101101 x 0011110 by traditional method it will take time but if you convert the multiplier into booth's recoding like 0+1000-10 it will perform better. It is happening because booths method is converting blocks of ones into zeros but still the multiplier remaining the same.
