I want to multiply 46x 25 ok so it equals Total 1150.

Now to make it easier for mental working..

Multiply 40 x 20 = 800

6 x 5 = 30 ... Total 830.

Can someone explain why the difference in answers...I am going round in circles :)

nope, nope not equal to ≠

It's a case of cross multiplication as in

46*25 =

(40+6)*(20+5) =

(40*20)+(40*5)+(6*20)+(6*5) this is the cross multiplication (had to dredge this up from long. long, long ago).

It may be the meds talking, I defer to Moree.

Don't knock the meds - they keep many of us going😎

I'm not knocking and I sure as hay ain't blocking.

Math is tertiary to neck surgery :)

Just be thankful you are not a giraffe Scott.

That is how I felt, like a sad giraffe.

A sad giraffe with math problem is worse though.

I wouldn't stick my neck out on that one................................

Says Mike the tortoise :)

Do they call a sad Math Giraffe An Algebrath.

Kate if I were working that out in my head it would be,

40 X 25 = 1000

6 X 25 = 150

Interesting conundrum though so hats off to moreeg for providing the answer and to stop you feeling Cross :)

Ted

Algebrath = Algebraffe

That works better Scott. :)

Algaebreath !

Try Listerine :) Nice one LH.

What's a diatom or two between friends :)

LOL. And nice to see a bit of resistance in there :)

LOL!!! I thought you would all enjoy ....... thanks for all the replies..

Hey!!! Scott... Good to see you posting with your usual sense of humour, not easy after your Op last week end..

Really hope the Neck is moving easier and you can reduce the dreaded Pain Killers...

Hello kate and thank you again for all your well wishes these last few weeks.

The bad meds are being tapered, won't be using them much longer.

Having had to be re-admitted for post-op issues was no fun indeed.

I think we're done for overnight stays, at least we better be.
