A Trick for the 9s
- Hold your hands in front of you with your fingers spread out.
- If the problem is 9 x 4, bend in your 4th finger (from the left)
- In front of the bent finger you have 3 fingers. After the bent finger you have 6 fingers
- So the answer is 36.
A Trick for the 4s
- Double a number and double it again.
- If the problem is 6 x 4, double 6 (12) and then double 12 (24).
- Or double 6 (12), double 6 again (12) and add up both doubles (12 + 12 = 24)
- A Trick for the 10s
- Each number multiplied by 10 adds a zero to it.
- 4 x 10 = 40, 7 x 10=70
A Trick for the 11s
- Any number times 11 is that digit doubled.
- 11 x 6 = 66, 11 x 4 = 44
