The vertical arrow points to the product where we will get the Units digit, and the sloping arrow points to the product where we will get the Tens digits of the Product Pair. Early in 1919, he learned that he was slated to be murdered. You'll even begin to enjoy math if you don't already.

A new and more powerful you! Unlike tricks and devices, the Trachtenberg method is a complete system that gives anyone a new confidence in the 'most hated' of school subjects.

However, rather than mope around flat-capped, posing for Depression Era Photographs, he elected to devise a board game.
