Re: Number Trick

Another trick i just learned...

123 x 123 = 15129

123
246
369

Multiply each column: and shift..

3 x 6 x 9 = 162
2 x 4 x 6 = 480
1 x 2 x 3 = 6000

Added up = 6642

6642 x 2 = 13284

246 x 7 = 1722 + 123 = 1845 <-- our adder

13284 + 1845 = 15129 <--- correct answer

Re: Number Trick

Another number trick... I just invented... 12 x 12 = 144 0104 <-- square each digit and make them all 2 digits. double the value 0104 +0104 --------- 208 double firs digit to 20 instead of 10 20 -12 <-- subtract number ----- 8 x8 <-- square the subtraction ---- 64 <-- our subtractor 208 - 64 ------ ...

Re: Number Trick

With 4 digits there's two sets of adds.. 1234 x 1234 = 1522756 01040916 <-- square each digit and make them all 2 digits. 1522756 -1040916 ------------- 481840 <--- difference first set of adds 1000 x 200 = 200000 1000 x 30 = 30000 1000 x 4 = 4000 second set of adds 200 x 30 = 6000 200 x 4 = 800 30 ...

Re: Number Trick

I got the formula finished... 123 x 123 = 15129 010409 <-- square each digit and make them all 2 digits.. 15129 -10409 ---------- 4720 <-- difference 100 x 20 = 2000 100 x 3 = 300 20 x 3 = 60 2360 x 2 = 4720 <-- our difference. Since were multplying 2 sets , we need to double the output 10409 + 4720...

Re: Number Trick

I found an interesting formula..

44 x 44 = 1936

------------------------
66 x 66 = 4356
22 x 22 = 484
-----------------------

4356 - 484 = 3872 x .5 = 1936

It doesn't work with other squares..

Re: Number Trick

@StoneMonkey

The formulas I'm working on , i can't write a program , till I've got several that match a rule..
So i have to do the manipulations on paper , until i get several sets of numbers working , with a particular rule..

Once i figure out the rule , then i can write a program...
