Grandpa Pencil
finds a Fabulous
Multiplying Answer Trick


Hello my friends,

What! Not more sums.

Sorry about that chief but they're such good fun I can't help myself.

This 'trick' just opens up like a flower as you do it so take your time to get it right,

  • Select a number between 1 and 9

  • Multiply that number by 9 (Say the selected number was 4, your answer will be 36)

  • Multiply 12345679 by that number
    (note that there is no 8 in this number)

  • Try to not look too surprised as the result unfolds
