This is done below in BLUE. Almost there! Now multiply the second digit of the first number by the second digit of the second number. Now for the final step, just add those three values together.
So, if you can do single digit multiplication and addition inside your head, you can multiply two numbers between 11 and 19 inside your head as well! Now you have a neat new trick to impress your friends. What we just did might also be called an algorithm, or as we defined earlier: a step-by-step procedure for solving a problem. Algorithms can be applied to much more than just math or computer programming, they can be applied to your ever day life in many different fashions.
Any time you come across a problem that might seem insurmountable, go ahead and break it down into smaller steps. So, next time you must metaphorically eat an elephant, it might go a little something like this:. Which will leave you feeling more like this:. Become a member.

Mental Math Test (Easy)
I ordered this book a while back but never got time to read it. I started reading it last week and have been doing an hour a night during bed time.
I'm blown away by how simple the author makes things. I can do many mental math calculations and people are confused as to how I'm doing it so fast. My 9 year old pulls out his calculator and tests me on calculations, then he asks me to show him how I done it. He can do the multiplying by 11, and squaring numbers.
- Entwined (The blue blood trilogy Book 1)!
- A safari to the discount grocery store.
- Night Angel (Paradise Pines Book 1).
- Ein Kind geborn zu Bethlehem.
His teacher was blown away that he could do the calculations so fast and gave him a gold star in class. I've told him "sssssh keep it a secret, don't tell anyone how you're doing it".
Awesome book. I used this book studying for a job interview It takes time to be good at mental maths and its for someone who really want to push them selves. Amazing book! Sat up in bed reading it now! I have an interest in maths and have been trying to sharpen up my mental skills. If you want to do this too, then this is the place to get started! The authors make the book accessible and fun, and I find myself eager to learn a new skill each day.
