DiS quick mental arithmetic challenge

Ready?

What is…

32 x 56?

GO!

I wouldn’t even be able to do this slowly

same. astonishingly bad at even basic maths.

1760?

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

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)

that’s how i did it

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

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

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

another!
