    Another numbers one.

    Adding numbers from 1 to whatever number, let’s start easy.
    All numbers between 1 and 10
    1 + 10 = 11
    Divide by 2 = 5.5
    Times by the last number (10) = 55

    Numbers between 1 and 55
    1 + 55 = 56
    Divide by 2 = 28
    Times 55 = 1,540

    What the **** was that all about, that was way over my head and I was top of my school for maths in my day.

    Haha, I was quite good too.
    Unfortunately I was a bit of a comedian in class, and the maths teacher caught me being a bit silly, and the punishment was to do some homework, he told me to add up all the numbers between 1 and 100.

    I was doing the 1+2+3+4 etc , when my Dad saw what I was doing, asked why I was doing it like that and laughed, proceeded to show me the easy way ^

    Love these , thanks @lucy4

    Thanks, hope you don't mind me hijacking your thread.
    Not at all , it would be great for others to get involved in adding what they find interesting about ‘stuff’, could be anything e.g. -

    The 9 times table, everything multiplied by 9 adds up to 9,
    9x9 = 81, 8+1=9,
    9 x 13 = 117 , 1+1+7 = 9
    9x99 = 891 , 8+9+1 = 18, 8+1 =9
    This is how I learnt my 9 x tables 50 years ago.

    This doesn't quite work if you're from Stoke.

    Fascinating.

    I did not know this, even though I have spent quite a bit of time in Ballachulish (the nearest place). For anyone thinking of going to the Highlands, Ballachulish is wonderful. They will even tolerate the English (provided, of course, you apologise first) :)

    PS-was the "whiskey" some sort of punishment? No "Whisky" until resolved problems?

    No, I never knew either, & I'm surprised, as I spent a lovely holiday at the perfectly lovely Ballachulish Hotel some years back, & well remember Ballachulish Bridge, which was quite a significant landmark.

    Unbelievable Jeff.
    Came across this "interesting fact" today.
    Not sure if this is the right thread to post it.
    Also notice it is non-gender specific.

    Never thankfully, as @Essexphil pointed out earlier 'whiskey' is simply wrong
