I was an adult when I learned that!
It’s okay. By the time the last presentation comes around, nobody’s listening.
Even if they can’t.
Uh, what’s the issue here? It was a valid answer.
Last is best for this sort of thing. “As [second best sounding kid] said, I learned [whatever], which really helped me. And also [whatever some other kid said]”
I still don’t know that. I don’t do math. LOL
Why? That’s one math rule that I’ve found useful to this day.
Well, I learned something new today! I’m not too sure how I would apply this….but ….
Works also for multiples of 9. Proving it is interesting
Can’t relate to this one. In senior year French we had to get up in front of the class and do a little news bit, translating to French an account of some current event. I can recall vividly a time when at least two thirds of the class began their reports with, “Norman Rockwell est mort.”
Two months later, same thing, except the percentage was more like 90: “Nelson Rockefeller est mort.”
In show business, the approach is the opposite. At a big summer weekend music festival, would Beyoncé agree to perform in any spot on the bill besides the last, the one closing the event on Sunday night?
I just now learned it, and I’m 70.
I figured it out for myself in elementary school. Most likely while I was tuning out the teacher.
I use it for entertainment on my commute – part of breaking license plate numbers down into their prime factors. Then add those numbers and break that number down. Then repeat as needed till I have a prime number.
