Anand Mahindra has doled out another gem from his 'WhatsApp Wonder Box', and this time it is a magical potion for those who suck/sucked at Mathematics. The chairman of the Mahindra Group shared a clever multiplication hack with his followers on Twitter. And it was so impressive that even Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan could not resist retweeting it.
The tweet has a short video clip, wherein a school teacher describes a clever shortcut to multiply various numbers by nine -- to be more precise, a hack to remember the table of nine.
The fingers on the hand become your calculator. It's unbelievable, and never-heard-before.
"Whaaaat? I didn't know about this clever shortcut. Wish she had been MY math teacher. I probably would have been a lot better at the subject!" Mahindra posted on Twitter.
Shah Rukh Khan replied, "Can't tell you how many of my life's issues this one simple calculation has solved wow!"
