Most Useful Math Hacks You Can Even Teach Your Teacher

Most of the kids have a hard time dealing with maths during their school years, and even some of the adults scratch their heads when it comes to doing maths. Maths has problems which are to be solved following certain steps. At times, even those simple steps seem mind boggling. But, there is nothing to worry about as there is not just one way to solve a math problem; you can always adopt the alternative that you are comfortable with. Sit back and relax because here are some hacks that will change the way you look at maths.

1. Multiplying with 11.

The key is to learn the tricks associated with specific numbers. For instance, multiplying with 11. Add the digits on the ones and the tens place and place the sum between the digits.

2. Learning tables is a pain.

Fortunately, there are some hacks for learning specific tables. It's more of a table creation hack than learning. To obtain the results, just write the numbers from zero to nine at the tens place and then nine to zero at the one's place.Although, learning tables is always a better choice.

3. This always used to confuse me when I was a child.

One of the ways to learn these signs is using 'The hungry crocodile' trick. The hungry crocodile always wants food that is more in quantity. Hence, it always opens its mouth when offered the quantity of food that is larger.

4. You can often end up scratching your head doing conversions.

It now seems like a piece of cake.

5. Reverse Zorro. Logical, huh!

It's simple, going for the division first makes the number easier to tackle.

6. Percentages are mind boggling.

Now, they are not. LOL!

7. Multiplication of large numbers made easy.

Subtract each of the numbers from hundred. Now, subtract the sum of the results obtained on the hundreds and thousands place. Multiply the results initially obtained (in this case 3 and 4) and place it on the ones and the tens place.

8. Pi always reminds me of pie.

The thought that you gotta learn its value may make you actually crave for a pie.
