 A sip full of Arithmetic Tricks! *:first-child+html .tweets{ margin-left:50px;float:right;clear: both;width:120px;margin-right:30px; } Here are  some of the best and interesting tricks to solve Arithmetic problems in seconds!!   So take a sip full of arithematic tricks from Topper's Magical Math Mug!!   Trick 1 If you have a large number to multiply and one of the numbers is even, you can easily subdivide to get to the answer:   64 x 62.5, is the same as:  32 x 125, is the same as: 16 x 250 is the same as: 8 x 500 is the same as: 4 x 1000 is the same as: 2 x 2000 = 4000   Trick 2 Dividing by 5 It is very simple to divide a large number by five. All you to do is multiply by 2 and move the decimal point: 195 / 5 Step1: 195 * 2 = 390 Step2: Move the decimal: 39.0 or just 39   2988 / 5 Step 1: 2988* 2 = 5976 Step2: 597.6   Trick 3     Subtracting from 1,000 To subtract a large number from 1,000 you can use this basic rule: subtract all but the last number from 9, and then subtract the last number from 10: 1000-648   step1: subtract 6 from 9 = 3 step2: subtract 4 from 9 = 5 step3: subtract 8 from 10 = 2   Answer: 352   Trick 4 Find 7 % of 300. Sound Difficult? Percents:  Let us first understand the word “Percent.” The first part is PER , as in 10 tricks per listverse page. PER = FOR EACH. The second part of the word is CENT, as in 100. Like Century = 100 years. 100 CENTS in 1 dollar… etc. Ok… so PERCENT = For Each 100. So, it follows that 7 PERCENT of 100, is 7. (7 for each hundred, of only 1 hundred). 8 % of 100 = 8. 35.73% of 100 = 35.73 But how is that useful?? Back to the 7% of 300 question. 7% of the first hundred is 7. 7% of 2nd hundred is also 7, and yep, 7% of the 3rd hundred is also 7. So 7+7+7 = 21. If 8 % of 100 is 8, it follows that 8% of 50 is half of 8 , or 4. Break down every number that’s asked into questions of 100, if the number is less then 100, then move the decimal point accordingly.   EXAMPLES: 8%200 = ? 8 + 8 = 16. 8%250 = ? 8 + 8 + 4 = 20. 8%25 = 2.0 (Moving the decimal back). 15%300 = 15+15+15 =45. 15%350 = 15+15+15+7.5 = 52.5   Trick 5 Flip Percent Trick Also it’s useful to know that you can always flip percents, like 3% of 100 is the same as 100% of 3. 35% of 8 is the same as 8% of 35.
