Mental Arithmetic (Posted on 2003-10-05) Difficulty: 3 of 5
I can multiply any three-digit number by 1667 in my head, usually in less than 10 seconds.

Also, to make it even more impressive, I come up with the digits of the result in proper order (not in reverse!)

How can I do this?

When the author says "...starting with the most significant number", I'm sure she means the most significant digit of the answer.
