## SIMPLE MULTIPLICATION.

(

Money Puzzles)

If we number six cards 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, and 8, and arrange them on the

table in this order:--

1 4 2 8 5 7

We can demonstrate that in order to multiply by 3 all that is necessary

is to remove the 1 to the other end of the row, and the thing is done.

The answer is 428571. Can you find a number that, when multiplied by 3

and divided by 2, the answer will be the same as if we removed the first

card (which in this case is to be a 3) From the beginning of the row to

the end?
