presenting the official creebobby comics archetype times table:
brought to you by jacob borshard's art and music.
my only complaint is that it's a 10x10 table - while normal times tables go to 12! although i'm not really sure why they go to 12. anyone know? do all kids everywhere in the world have to memorize to 12 x 12? why not stop at 10, or go to 13?
i always thought numbers times 11 were fun because the answers all have symmetry: 55, 88, 121... but numbers times 12 were harder to memorize because it took me longer to find a recognizable pattern!!
and anything times three is great, although i didnt know it (and it wouldnt have helped) when i was trying to memorize my times tables. you can tell if big numbers are divisible by three, by simply adding up the value of the digits. if the digits add up to a number that is divisible by three, then the whole number is divisible by 3! 8125 is not divisible by three, but 1905 and 9501 are!
its a neat little math trick, even if you don't get to use it very often!
