I don't have any idea how this works, but apparently it does!

I sent this link to my older brother who just replied:

It works because they have memorized the abacus keyboard. You have likely never seen anyone doing math on an abacus board. Right?

What they are doing is flipping beads up and down on the imaginary vertical wires of the board, remembering the effect that each “flip” has on the total to be arrived at.

It is an amazing feat of memory to be sure!

Not much impresses me and this is no exception. Is there anything more useless than someone trying to prove how smart they are? Put all those numbers into a real environment and watch the air get sucked out of the room. Yes, I'm talking about story problems.
