Step 1: Identify Problem
Step 2: Create a Square and Put One Value on Top and One Value on the Right Side
Step 3: Draw Diagonal Lines Across Each Box
Step 4: Multiply Digits When They Correspond to the Same Box
Ex: 2 x 2 = 4 ( 0 in the top corner, and 4 in the bottom corner)
2 x 3 = 6 ( 0 in the top corner, and 6 in the bottom corner)
Step 5: Add Numbers in Each Diagonal Section
Ex: 0 + 2 + 0 = 2
Ex: 4 + 0 + 3 = 7
Ex: 6 = 6
ANSWER: Read number from left to right 276! (:
