Before we start to explain the concept we would just like to ask you a few questions in math.
4325 X 235 =? Or 7354 / 2345 =?
Did you pick up a pen and paper or a calculator?
Now if we tell you that you need to do these sums without the help of any external aid you would probably laugh and say this is impossible. Or it would take you a long time to solve them.
Can you imagine an eight-year-old child solving these sums that have baffled you in just eight seconds flat, without using any of the external aids mentioned above? We are sure that by now you are thinking, "Yeah, right!"
