something my 12 grade math teacher showed me about math

Take any number that has five on right side. Multiply them together, it will give you 25. that is part of the answer. Now take lets say the say 25x25. add 1 to the top 2, It will give you 3. Multiply that 3 by the 2. That gives you 6. Bring that down for your answer for that side. Gives you 625. This only works with numbers that are the same and must have 5 on the outside such as 85x85 equals 7225 and so on. Not much help, but this has help me many times over the years.

If relegated to using manual math instead of at the minimum a electronic calculator -- then everyone should check out a old-time method of checking the answer for addition, multiplication and division, which is called "casting out nines" - THIS IS A SIMPLIFIED EXAMPLE.

Here is the simple example for multiplication. It works the same for the other two.

22x22=484 (easy to check visually here, but what if the equation was 134.83928 x 328349.3289 = X?

Follow along with the simple example. Take the first 22 and add together 2+2 = 4 now do the same multiplier 2 + 2 = 4

Multiply the two 4x4 = 16 (now reduce to a single number by addition 1 + 6 = 7 Seven is the check-sum.

With the product, do the same (reducing to a single number ) 4 + 8 + 4 = 16 then 1 + 6 = 7 Seven matching the first check sum proves your math.

If you can grasp this then consider how to cast out nines for division.

Eg. 484/22 = 22 (notice the same routine possible?)

Well, what do you know? I just caused the liberals eyes to cross and now they are asleep. Go figure.

Now, If you grasped the above methodology, you should be capable of solving this conundrum, presented as a logical postulation. Perhaps both a "logical axiom" and "non-logical axiom"

Ready?

Three salesman arrived in town, their assignment was to sell a product usable by many business owners.

The first thing they did was check into the local downtown hotel and rented (and paid for) a one night stay, sharing one room. The overnight rate was $30.00. Thus, they paid $10.00 each.

After a productive days work they returned to the hotel for the evening meal and a good nights sleep.

Upon picking up their room key and a bit of friendly conversation, the salesmen headed up to their room. The night desk clerk; being curious, checked their paperwork and discovered the day clerk had over charged them by $5.00. They should have been charged $25.00 not $30.00 because the company they worked for qualified for a corporate discount.

Knowing the salesmen would turn in their vouchers for reimbursement from their company, and wanting to maintain positive relations, the night clerk called over the bell hop and, gave him 5- $1.00 bills, and told him go up to their room, and to refund the three salesmen their $5.00.

Yes! The bell hop, being a uneducated Democrat could not figure out how to divide five dollars among the three salesman, and being liberal decided to give each of the three salesmen $1.00 each and stuck the other $2.00 in his pocket.

Can you see the conundrum?

OK... Let me put it another way:

Each salesman has now paid $9.00 each ($10.00 - $1.00)

The liberal bell hop has $2.00 in his pocket.

So 3x$9.00 = $27.00 + $2.00 in bell clerk pocket = $29.00

Wait a minute here. What happened to the $1.00 shortage.

Notation: The above required a lot of double talk, lack of logic and a over abundance of BS. So. Liberals should have an immediate answer, unless they are really as dumb as conservatives think they are.

YOUR ANSWER?

I want to answer this, but if I did, you would call me a liberal and I would pout all next week. Now, if you promise not to call me a liberal I will answer it, within the next hour after your promise.
