Hmmm...5 times 11.

Hello MarkFL,

Oh, although your method mentioned $\displaystyle 5×11=55$ but you were not specific.

You only show me long addiction but did not explain clearly like me and also did not explain how did you get $\displaystyle 5$.

In addiction, you did not say $\displaystyle 5×11=55$, you said 5(11)=55

I was not specific? I specifically and clearly showed you several ways to add these numbers. You're welcome.

you're looking for? Your statement makes no sense.
Are you sure you're from "earth"

Hello,

I was too busy wasn't have time to respond.

You didn't tell me how you got $\displaystyle 5$, actually $\displaystyle 10÷2=5$.

I know there're many methods, but I stated that I need Primary School method but you given me "formula" button which isn't Primary School, right?

Yes, I am from earth, a living thing on earth.

Yes, first I forgot to mention Primary School method because I thought there are a few that's why you given me formula method. After that you given me normal method but difficult to understand because many unknown numbers,
Like $\displaystyle 7=2×4-1$, there are many possibilities like $\displaystyle 7=2×3+1$.
And not all numbers that method can work, you said need to do formula method.

I don't know. I discovered that formula in 2nd grade (~8 years old) and only learned about the one you mentioned many years later. Of course I didn't express it as elegantly as Mark, but what do you expect?
