3 Useful Math Hacks that you Can Try

There’s no better place to learn the fundamentals of math than from one of the best international schools in Manila. As far as these fundamental methods bring you there are times when you wish that there is a faster way to get through these equations. Especially some equations that pop up more than once.

There are a few math hacks that isn’t in the textbooks or is taught in any syllabus and mastering these hacks may make things easier for you. You will look like a math wizard in the speed you’re going to solve most mathematical equations.

If you ever come across recipes or textbooks that require you to heat ingredients at a certain temperature. You will usually face a problem where they state the temperature in Fahrenheit and your heating apparatus is in Celsius. There’s a quick way of converting temperature to help you have an easier time.

1. If you’re converting from C to F:

  • Multiply 1.8 by the temperature in Fahrenheit
  • Add the product to 32 and that will be the temperature in Celsius.

2.  If you’re converting from F to C

  • Subtract 32 from the temperature in Celsius
  • Divide the difference by 1.8 and you’ll have the temperature in Fahrenheit

Adding and subtracting fractions can be one of the hardest things to learn as a kid, even as you grow older the method to find the sum and difference of these fractions is still a hassle to be done.

Now, you have the butterfly method to aid you in solving even the toughest fraction equations.

1. Adding Fractions:

  • Multiply the numerator of the first fraction to the denominator of the second fraction.
  • Multiply the denominator of the first fraction to the numerator of the second fraction.
  • Add both products to get the numerator of the final sum of the two fractions.
  • If you multiply the denominators of the first two fractions that will give you the denominator of the sum of the fractions

2. Subtracting Fractions

  • Multiply the numerator of the first fraction to the denominator of the second fraction.
  • Multiply the denominator of the first fraction to the numerator of the second fraction.
  • Subtract the products and that will be the numerator of the difference of the fractions
  • Multiply the denominators of the first two fractions that will give you the denominator of the sum of the fractions

They probably taught you tricks to multiply from 1 to 10 but you probably don’t know the trick to multiply by 11. Multiplying two digit numbers with 11 may seem daunting but with this simple trick you’ll find it easier than multiplying by 10.

The first digit of the number you’re multiplying by 11 will be the first digit of the product. The second digit of the number will be the last digit of the product. You then add these first digit to the second digit and the sum will be the middle of the product.

These hacks will make you look and feel like a mathematical prodigy. Your friends and classmates will be in awe in the speed and efficiency you get through different equations.
