DiS quick mental arithmetic challenge


#1

Ready?

What is…

32 x 56?

GO!


#2

I wouldn’t even be able to do this slowly


#3

same. astonishingly bad at even basic maths.


#4

1760?


#5

I legitimately don’t know how to do long division or long multiplication.


#6

No.


#7

1792


#8

@he_2 wins!


#9

#10

Where’s my badge / motto thing @moderators?

Interested to know how other people do mental arithmetic.

So I’d times 56 by 10 (560), then times it by 3 (1680). Then times 56 by 2 (112) and add them together (1792)


#16

that’s how i did it


#17

Pretty much that - I was able to work 56 & 30 out off the bat, then the 2 x 56,


#18

I did 32 * 50 which is effectively 32/2 * 100 so that’s 1600
then 32 * 6 which is 192


#19

Couldn’t do 56 x 30…I have to simplify things down to either x2, x3, x5 or x10


#20

really small gear that, mate. you wanna train your legs up a bit!
