Photomath can’t solve this, and neither can Mathway, Symbolab, or Desmos. Can you? I explain how you can. A similar problem was given to high school students in Massachusetts, and you really have to know what you’re doing to figure it out. Thanks to all patrons! Special thanks this month to: Shrihari Puranik Richard Ohnemus

Multiplying by lines is a fun way to visually multiply numbers. This is why how you can use it for advanced examples.
