What's 27 times 37 ?

Pretty neat, huh?

Imagine for a moment that even an earthworm may possess a love of self and a love of others.

Hi John;

How are you? I cannot see what you did.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
90% of mathematicians do not understand 90% of currently published mathematics.
I am willing to wager that over 75% of the new words that appeared were nothing more than spelling errors that caught on.

Re: What's 27 times 37 ?

Yes, that's true!!! Bobby, I learnt that once a long time ago...
By the way, I just watched a short video on a short cut way
to multiply two numbers inclusively between 11 and 19.
Here's an example:
Take 14 times 17, which we all know is 238 by heart anyway by now, but anyhow,
simply add 7 to 14 and get 21. Tack a zero on the
end of 21 for 210.  Then to finish, add on to the
210, 4 times 7 or 28 for 238, wow!!!  I'll put this in
"This is Cool" too, since it is so wonderful!!

Start with any two-digit number. Multiply each digit by itself then add these answers. Do the same thing to this new number and so on until something happens. For example 32 becomes 9+4 which is 13, 13 becomes 1+9 which is 10, 10 becomes 1+0 =1. This one ends at 1. What else happens when you start with different numbers?

@alexa.pete9
I'll try 33:
9 + 9 = 18
1 + 64 = 65
36 + 25 = 61
36 + 1 = 37
9 + 49 = 58
25 + 64 = 89
64 + 81 = 145
1 + 16 + 25 = 42
16 + 4 = 20
4 + 0 = 4
16 = 16
1 + 36 = 37
9 + 49 = 58
I'm starting to go in a circle now...
