Thanks!
Hello, ManuLi!
Is there any easy way to find squares of numbers between 40 and 50, 60 and 90?
There is a trick for squaring numbers "near 50",
Let .where is the "deviation from 50".
Then: .
So, in the hundreds-place is: .
. . . followed by , the deviation-squared.
Example: .
The deviation is: .
The answer is: .
. .followed by: .
Therefore: .
Example: .
The deviation is: .
The answer is: .
. .followed by: .
Therefore: .
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Consecutive squares differ by consecutive odd numbers.
. .
If we know one square, we can crank out the next few squares.
For example: .
Double the 60 and add 1: .
That is the odd number we will add.
