Mathematics

- 1.Choose a 2-digit number.

2.Select a number either 8 smaller or 8 larger.

3.Find the middle number of the two (the average).

4.Square this middle number (multiply it by itself).

5.Subtract 16 from this square.

- 1.If the first number is 34, choose 26 as the second number (8 smaller).

2.The middle number (the average) is 30.

3.Square this middle number: 30 x 30 = 900.

4.Subtract 16 from this square: 900 - 16 = 884.

5.So 34 x26 = 884.

- 1.If the first number is 64, choose 72 as the second number (8 larger).

2.The middle number (the average) is 68.

3.Square this middle number: 68 x 68 = 4624. Remember how to square a 2-digit number ending in 8?

4.Subtract 16 from this square: 4624 - 16 = 4608.

5.So 64 x 72 = 4608.
