[quote] I don't remember the exact numbers, but it was something like 465 + 228, and the correct answer was 400 + 200 + 60 + 20 + 5 + 8. They will be teaching to break it down into that manner, then you get 600 + 80 + 13, then 693. [/quote] Which is exactly how I think about numbers. Column addit...
