Maths Tips and Tricks from Ziyi

I am not sure if any similar equations out there. But this is really new to me and I never thought before. I will call this is Zi Yi's invention! or Zi Yi's Math Theory. 

This is what he told me.....
ziyi: Mama,  I wish I can write my formula too.....
Me: write la...
X Days... over....
ziyi: mama, I found that we can do this. (1 + 2 )* 3 - 4 / 5 = 1. Interesting right?
Me: Yupe, very interesting. But I think it will be better if you have a equation with 1,2,3,4,5,6 like that.
ziyi: Then 1+2, *3, -4, /5, +6 =7 lo
Me: Wow... 你之前已经有想过了对吗?
ziyi: No, I just do base on your question.
Me: ziyi, this is call requirements ( 职业病)

ziyi: mama, there are short cut to do multiplication 9, and other numbers. I wonder if I also can come out some short cut or tricks.
In order to count like a clock for multiplication 5 I think we can come out a  formula.
And I finally found one.
Me: Really?
ziyi: Give me a number. Just any number
Me: 250
ziyi: 250 * 5 it will be 250 divided by 2 times 10. So, 250/2 *10 = 125 * 10 = 1250
ziyi: give me another number
Me: 24?
ziyi: still the same, 24 / 2 * 10 = 120
Me: wow....!!!
ziyi: you know why? This is because 10 / 2 = 5!

ziyi: Ehhh... maybe we can try divided by 5. Let's try times 2 divided by 10
ziyi: Give me any number
Me: 250
ziyi: If divided by 5 then the short cut is divided by 2 and times 10. So, 250 * 2 / 10 = 500 / 10 = 50.

ziyi: wow... it works!

multiplication 5, tricks is divided by 2 times 10
division 5, tricks is times 2 divided by 10

Seriously .... ziyi you are too amazing!

He very bz with his number again. I don't know what he will going to do with it.

Out of control! ziyi in love with maths.

Mama, you see there even had formula for Domino effect!
Mama, you see there is a square root on the formula. 他很high!我可以感觉他真的很兴奋!
