Elementary, My Dear
Forty days and forty nights,
Didn't it rain, children.
Not a speck of land in sight,
Didn't it, didn't it rain.
But Noah built the ark so tight
They sailed on, children.
And when at last the waters receded
And the dove brought back the olive tree leaf,
He landed that ship near Mt. Ararat
And one of his Children grabbed Noah's robe and said,
"Hey, Dad, how many animals on this old ark anyway, huh?"
Elementary, my dear, 2 x 2 is 4.
Elementary, my dear, 2 X 3 is 6.
Elementary, my dear, 2 X 4 is 8.
Elementary, My dear, 2 x 5 is 10.
2 x 1 is 2 of course.
And it must occur to you,
You get an even number
Every time you multiply by two.
Elementary, my dear, 2 x 6 is 12.
Elementary, my dear, 2 x 7 is 14.
Elementary, my dear, 2 x 8 is 16.
Elementary, my dear, 2 x 9 is 18.
2 x 10 is 20, 11 twice is 22.
Double 12, that's 24,13 twice is 26,
14 twice is 28,15 twice is 30, now you build it up on 30,
16 twice is 32, (clap clap) elementary
17 twice is 34, (clap clap) elementary
18 twice is 36, (clap clap) elementary
19 twice IS 38, (clap clap) elementary ...
20 twice is 40, and it must occur to you,
You can double any number,
All you do is multiply by two ...
Elementary, my dear, 2 x 2 is 4. (Woo!)
Elementary, my dear, 2 x 3 is 6. (Yeah!)
Elementary, my dear, 2 x 4 is 8. (Whoop!)
Elementary, my dear, 2 x 5 is 10. (Yeah!)
Now if you want to multiply 2 x 174,
Or some big number like that.
2 X 174 equals 2 X 100 Plus 2 x 70 Plus 2 X 4
That's all.
So 2 x 174 equals 200 plus 140 plus 8...or 348
It's elementary.
Elementary ... elementary ...
Twice 32 IS 64, (clap clap) elementary
Twice 33 IS 66, (clap clap) elementary
Twice 34 is 68, (clap clap) elementary
Twice 35 IS 70, (clap clap) elementary
Yeah, yes, it's elementary, yeah.
Now, what's 2 x 98?
Awl That's hard!
No, it's very simple.
2 x 98 equals 2 X 100 minus 2 x 2.
That's 200 minus 4 ... 196.
Elementary.
Forty days and forty nights
Didn't it rain, children.
