# Quick Square

A mathematical trick

Did you know that there is a quick way of squaring a two digit number which ends in 5?

Just multiply the first digit by that number plus one.... stick a 25 after your product and there's your answer .... simple ?

Example:

Q. What is 35 squared?
A. 3x4=12
.....now stick on the 25

Barry's Response - It even seems to work with three digit numbers (using the first two digit to make a two digit number) and plain old 5, using 0 as the first digit.

Oh the handy things we can do with math, games,conversions and tricks.
