Sure they do. Yesterday we learned that 7 × 13 = 28.
See, six minus the one is 5, then 5 minus the one is 4.Then for 7 × 13, you add the one to make 8, then multiply the 3 times 7 to get 2. The tax auditors love me when I come in every year. Somehow, the experienced ones are always recommending me to their new auditors. They say it’s for “training”.
This must be some of that new “rotten core” stuff the editorials are always harping about. :-P
No ciphering here.
Must be that new math.
Alright! Cut it out! The answer is 66.
And this is a Dad who works for the Government Accounting Office !
The times tables are the first to go……..or is that the second to go.
6×6 = 36.3+6 = 95+4 = 9So, yeah, it kind of works.
S’ok, they’ll socially promote them
6 * 6 = 48 in base 7, or 56 in base 6. Your number base must be somewhere between those two
