Nice quiz idea. Combines both typing speed and maths. I got all with 14 sec to spare on my first try. Also interesting to see that most people run out of time near multiplication by 8.
plus I think perhaps what he means, the keypad as opposed to the normal numbers on top of the keyboard, are arranged just like on a calculator, and if you are not used to using that, the keypad isnt gonna make you go faster (than using th numbers on top of the kb)
When I begin the last row (x12) I thought: "No way I can end this!" As soon as I entered 144 (and forgetting that was the last) I see the clock on 0:02... "NO FREAKING WAY I COULD DO THIS!!!!"
100% on 2nd attempt, 1st attempt I got 1 digit wrong (hit the wrong button) and typed out the next few before realising I was just stringing numbers together due to the first error.
I think so too. We never learned multiplication tables past 10x10, we use the decimal system so we didn't need to. I think the 12x12 is for inches and feet and suchlike.
They arent??? really? I know in math classes in higher education (12+ different names in different countries, I cant keep up) a calculator is accepted in math classes, but on elementary/primary school?? instead of learning it??
I guess they ve stopped teaching the alphabet aswell?
I can multiply all the numbers by memory but for the purposes of this quiz you really only have to start each row with the number and just keep adding it to itself.
E.g the 8x row is just 8+8+8 all the way across. 8, 16, 24, etc.
So even if you didn't memorize the table, you could still fill it in easily.
I'm doing it on my phone, so I would consider 118/144 pretty good considering all the extra time spent a) switching to the number keypad and b) deleting because my fat finger isn't accurate 100% of the time.
I've been able to do this in five minutes on paper for three years up to 15x15, but I'm not used to the in line numbers, so for all the people who agree with me, please add at least a minute or two.
I'd say of the people who comment on this quiz, 33% are braggers, 33% are liars, 33% are great typists, and 1% are like me--pathetic at these sort of quizzes (but I'm great in every other way).
This is a challenge - lots to type! I find it my interesting that as I post my comment, there are 144 total comments - a perfect number for this exercise. My comment however, ruins that, sigh.
Omgggg JUST missed 144 by like a millisecond. If I didn't hesitate on rows 7 and 8, I would've gotten 100% easily.
Argh.
9, 10, and 11 are weirdly the easiest.
