Shakuntala Devi was undoubtedly the most brilliant arithmetic mental calculator of all time. In 1977 she mentally calculated the 23rd root of a 201 digit number in a mere 50 seconds. She toured the world showing how she could do calculations faster than they could be entered into and solved by the computers of the day.
The problem for you is much simpler: Evaluate (without using a calculator) the 6th root of the 25 digit number consisting of 1 followed by all zeros.

What is the result when the largest two-digit number is multiplied by the second smallest three-digit number?
Put four operations signs between the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 to make the largest possible result.
What will it be?
Change the order of the numbers (but they must still be separated by an operations sign), use all four signs, and don't use brackets.
Cross out 5 digits from the number
so that the remaining number is as large as possible.
What are the first five digits of the result?
Do this in your head. No pen, paper, or calculator.
Start with something
multiply it by 3
multiply the result by 4
The result is 15.
What is the something we started with?
