# How Fast Can You Multiply?

Multiply: 14 $$\times$$ 12 $$\times$$ 1,000 $$\times$$ $$\frac{4}{7}$$ $$\times$$ $$\frac{13}{1}$$ $$\times$$ 0 $$\times$$ $$\frac{5}{6}$$ $$\times$$ 32 $$\times$$ 1 $$\times$$ 4 $$\times$$ $$\sqrt{5}$$ $$\times$$ 2 $$\times$$ $$\frac{3}{4}$$ $$\times$$ 2$$\sqrt{5}$$ $$\times$$ 9 $$\times$$ 32 Note by Kaleil Salomon -Jacob

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Yeah, whenever I see things like this I always look for two things, reciprocals and zeros. Then the whole thing is a trick. :)
