Or is already there a term in math for using an absolutely invalid method to get an answer that happens to be right?
What do you mean valid?
I just tried it on 2 * 4, 2.31 * 5.3361, and 38 * 1444. Works every time.
Erm, what do you mean *in*valid?
Works every time xy=y^2/x x^2 = y
But you knew that.
Moe, the word you’re looking for is “coincidence”.
Try: 9 X 3 = ?
For extra credit try it with either number negative.
It’s merely “Math Goldberg”
Neil’s done his algebra….it works if y = x^2
