Method for multiplying numbers where the first figures are the same and the last figures add up to 10

FOR EG:

32 x 38 = 1216

Both numbers here start with 3 THEY ARE SAME and the last

figures (2 and 8) add up to 10

So we just multiply 3 by 4 (the next number up)

to get 12 for the first part of the answer.

And we multiply the last figures: 2 x 8 = 16 to

get the last part of the answer.

· And 81 x 89 = 7209

We put 09 since we need two figures as in all the other examples

solve this

Village A has a population of 70,000, which is decreasing at the rate of 1000 per year.

Village B has a population of 52000, which is increasing at the rate of 400 half yearly

.How many years will they take to reach same population

try its easy .............

leave your answer as a comment......

ANSWER

let,after x yrs their will b same...

after x yrs in A population decreases 1000x & in B population increases (2*400*x)=800x .

So,

70000-1000x = 52000 + 800x

x= 10

Comments: (1)

Square a 2 Digit Number, for this example 37:

> Look for the nearest 10 boundary

> In this case up 3 from 37 to 40.

> Since you went UP 3 to 40 go DOWN 3 from 37 to 34.

> Now mentally multiply 34x40

> The way I do it is 34x10=340;

> Double it mentally to 680

> Double it again mentally to 1360

> This 1360 is the FIRST interim answer.

> 37 is "3" away from the 10 boundary 40.

> Square this "3" distance from 10 boundary.

> 3x3=9 which is the SECOND interim answer.

> Add the two interim answers to get the final answer.

> Answer: 1360 + 9 = 1369

> Look for the nearest 10 boundary

> In this case up 3 from 37 to 40.

> Since you went UP 3 to 40 go DOWN 3 from 37 to 34.

> Now mentally multiply 34x40

this is an easy trick

To subtract a large number from 1,000

subtract all but the last number from 9, then subtract the last number from 10

1000

-547

step1: subtract 5 from 9 = 4

step2: subtract 4 from 9 = 5

step3: subtract 7 from 10 = 3

answer: 453
