HALVE divide by 2 (e.g. 10 ÷ 2 = 5)
DOUBLE multiply by 2 (e.g. 10 x 2 = 20)
SQUARE times by itself (e.g. 10 x 10 = 100)
CUBE times by itself twice (e.g. 10 x 10 x 10 = 1,000)
x ^{3} /_{5} find three fifths (e.g. ^{1} /_{5} of 15 = 3, so ^{3} /_{5} = 9)
x 2^{1} /_{3} find two and a third (e.g. 2 ^{1} /_{3} of 15 = 2 x 15 + 5 = 35)
x 10% find 10% (e.g. 10% of 80 = 8)
√ find the square root (e.g. the square root of 100 is 10)
I have deliberately chosen not include the answers. You can use a calculator to see the value at each stage of the calculation.
