but if we look further...
my answer is 48. 4 + 8 = 12
your answer is 69. 6 + 9 = 15
15 - 12 = 3

Want to learn an easy trick to multiply by 5 with any (reasonably small) number in your head?

Simply divide the number by 2 then multiply by ten.

For example:
9x5
9/2 = 4.5
4.5x10 = 45!

Let's go bigger...
460x5
460/2 = 230
230x10 = 2300!

NOT BIG ENOUGH!
8668x5
8668/2 = 4334
4334x10 = 43340!

Now you know...

Let me start off by saying I am 17 years old, so technically I am part of the generation that gets all the **** . I am absolute **** at everything in school but math, and I took Algebra I in seventh grade. Last year I took Calculus I, and this year I'm beginning Calculus II. I've been advanced all through school, but even the kids who are special ed are required to take Algebra I and II and Geometry to get their diploma where I live, the wonderful land of Indiana. In the 80's, you would take Algebra I your senior year if you were advanced enough. We have progressed so far with the standard of our education. While my generation does get a lot of **** for being stupid, I think it should be clarified more often that the common sense and worldliness of this generation are failing, because the education system is doing its job. Which is teaching kids how to shut up and pay attention so they can learn about their future careers.

inb4 "It's all useless information", Well we very well can't teach kids from first grade how to assess career options. Those 12 years of primary schooling open us up to what we actually want to do.

How do you guys multiply / devide?
I do it by going to multiplication that I've memorized that is closest, in this case it would be 5 times 8 = 40. Then I just add 8 so it becomes 48.
With practice, I've managed to do this very fast.

Just wondering how others do it

...Except America has some of the highest academic standards in the world.

For example, an A in the British school system would be a C in the American system. Our students are held to much higher standards.
