Math tricks:
1)i) Select a number (Z) from 1 to 9
ii) Then Z x 9 = Y
iii) Then Y x 12345679 = ZZZZZZZZZZ
Find why every number will result to this.
2)i) Select a twodigits number (ZY)
ii) Then ZY x 101 = ZYZY
Find why every numbers will result to this.
Both of this, i learnt them from school.

WARNING: IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW THE ANSWERS STOP READING
For question 1:
Take the case Z = i
y = 9i
9i *123456789 = ZZZZZZZZZZ
9 * 123456789 * i = ZZZZZZZZZZ
1111111111 * i = ZZZZZZZZZZ
iiiiiiiii = ZZZZZZZZZZ
resusbstitute i = Z
ZZZZZZZZZZ = ZZZZZZZZZZ
Question 2:
A bit harder to show
If you use long multiplication from high school you will get
101
* XY

Y0Y
X0X0

XYXY
Each row will therefore be made of 0 Y 0 Y yada yada yada
Since the next row is always shifted left one place it will be X 0 X 0
This will ALWAYS produce X Y X Y.
This can even be extended to 10101 * XY = XYXYXY
Hopefully I didn't spoil anyone's fun by posting these answers (and hopefully they are correct as well!!)
