Date: 9/28/95 at 12:18:31 From: Anonymous Subject: Multiply Fast Do you have any ideas on how I can learn to multiply and divide faster? I know how it's done. It just seems to take me a long time and I want to get faster.

Second, read a book called Mathemagics. It is about how to learn to multiply in your head very fast, so it would really help you a lot. Write back if you have specific questions about multiplication. -Doctor Ethan, The Geometry Forum
