Squaring of numbers ending with “5” 652= 65×65=4225

But how,

There are two steps

• Put (5×5=25) in right side
• Then put {(6×6)+6}=42 in the left side
• Then we get 4225

If we have AB as a number so that B must be 5, then follow the below formula for easy remembering, AB2 = (A2+A) × 100 +B2

Example:

252 = (22+2) ×100+52

= 6×100+25=600+25=625.

Take two digit numbers say “AB” and “AC” so that, (B+C) =10, always Then, we should follow the below formula for easy remembering

AB×AC= {(A2+A) ×100} + (B×C)

Example:

42×48 = {(42+4) ×100} + (8×2) = 2016.

Let us take an example, 234×389=?
