Math Trick!

Problem:  ANY LARGE NUMBER TIMES 5-

This works EVERY SINGLE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ex.

5 times 6554 =

divide 6554 in half

3277 since it is a whole number just add a zero 32,770=5 times 6554

Let’s say you do not have a whole number-

5 times 5443

divide 5443 in half

2721.5 get rid of the decimal 5 times 5443 = 27,215 

This works every time! Math is magical!!!!!!!!! TRY IT! Better try it on an adult!
