I like the school I just don't like some of the teachers there. And so now he whole school district goes from different elementary schools then the intermediate school and then the middle school then the junior high and then the high school. So basically we change schools every two years when we start in the intermediate through junior high at mifflin county school district we were thinking about switching schools.

That sounds horrible!
Ours is pre school through second grade (so Pre K, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd), then the other elementary school is 3-5, then middle school is 6-8 and high school is 9-12. But when my brother was in middle school it used to be 5th grade too I think. And now last year or the year before they finished a huge new combinded middle and high school and tore down the old high school and middle school. They put sports fields in the old high school and build where the middle school was, across the street. I think the middle and high school are still seperate and have different entrances on opposite sides of the building but they share the gym, library, and cafeteria I think. But fortunately we all graduated well before the new school (Myself in 2012, my older brother 2009, and my other brother 2014) because I heard the new school is horrible. We got to see plans, they displayed them for years before. It looks like a hotel and they don't even have their own rooms I don't think, the teachers have to wheel carts around. One of the good parts was how the teachers decorate their own roms, this sounds so sterile. No desks either I dont think, a couple tables with a hole in the middle. Think they also gave everyone macs the last few years to,use and homework is online and you used to have to give them back but they just changed it where you can keep them. It's all just so dumb.
My class was only 200 or 300 something though so we're smaller but still.
Its all dumb.
But anyways, this is honestly really basic.
You don't even need to do it in your head or by any method taught. I to this day can't do multiplication and division in my head or even on paper and I took FOREVER to learn the multiplication chart and still can't. Plus I know many schools now teach algebra and other really complicated things really early now. But anyway, so even if you know how to do nothing, if you have a calculator you can do anything. And if you have a computer or phone there is a calculator there. Open the calculator. Type in 36x100 or 4x8 or whatevrr (hit the appropriate symbol) and there is your answer. Takes 2 seconds.
