Multiply by 
Assorted Multiplication Rules

Sample 

Multiply by 5:  Multiply by 10 and divide by 2. (using 27 x 5)  27 x 5 = 27 x 10 = 270 / 2 (270/2 ) = 135 
Multiply by 6:  Sometimes multiplying by 3 and then 2 is easy.  27 x 6 = 27 x 3 = 81 x 2 = 162 
Multiply by 9:  Multiply by 10 and subtract the original number.  27 x 9 = 27 x 10 = 270 – 27 = 243 
Multiply by 12:  Multiply by 10 and add twice the original number.  27 x 12 = 27 x 10 = 270 + 54 = 324 
Multiply by 13:  Multiply by 3 and add 10 times original number.  27 x 13 = 27 x 3 = 81 + 270 = 351 
Multiply by 14:  Multiply by 7 and then multiply by 2  27 x 14 = 27 x 7 = 189 x 2 = 378 
Multiply by 15:  Multiply by 10 and add 5 times the original number, (using 25 x 15)  25 x 15 = 25 x 10 = 250 + 75 = 325 
Multiply by 16:  Multiply by 8 and then x by 2.  27 x 16 = 27 x 8 = 216 x 2 = 432 
Multiply by 17:  Multiply by 7 and add 10 times original number.  27 x 17 = 27 x 7 = 189 + 270 = 459 
Multiply by 18:  Multiply by 20 and subtract twice the original number  27 x 18 = 27 x 20 = 540 – 54 = 486 
Multiply by 19:  Multiply by 20 and subtract the original number.  25 x 20 = 500  25 = 475 
Multiply by 24:  Multiply by 8 and then multiply by 3.  
Multiply by 27:  Multiply by 30 and subtract 3 times the original number  
Multiply by 45:  Multiply by 50 and subtract 5 times the original number  
Multiply by 90:  Multiply by 9 (as above) and put a zero on the right.  
Multiply by 98:  Multiply by 100 and subtract twice the original number.  
Multiply by 99:  Multiply by 100 and subtract the original number. 
Tally the restaurant or hotel bill total (round it up) $154.70 rounded is $ $155 = 1% = $1.55 and multiply by the amount you wish to tip
10% would be $15.50
20%  $15.50 x 2 = $31.00
If you need to leave a 15% tip,
here is the easy way to do it.
Work out 10% (divide the number by 10) – then add that number to half its value and you have your answer:
10% of $155.00 = 15.50 plus half of $15.50 = 7.25
= $15.50 + $7.25 tip 15% = $22.75 (just give a $25)
Sample Restaurant bill $254.00 Tip 15% = 10% is $25.40 plus half of $25.40 = $12.70 Add $25.40 and $12.70 = $38.10
will you round it up (staff rely on tips)
First rule all pay the same even if someone had desert and others did not (far to hard to recalculate)
Take the bill divide it by the number at the table
Say you bill was $500.00 for 6 people divide $500 by 6 = $83.33 each pay
everyone round up to $90 and the excess is a small tip for the staff! ($40 tip)

Here is a useful resource site in the USA that looks at educating STEM & STEAM Units
USA have two components both the same but one set includes Art
STEM Science, Technology, Engineering and Math or STEAM Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math fields

Simple Calculators (thanks to Megan & Mrs Anna Jones)
In Australia we also have STEM as a curriculum unit however STEM covers Engineering but in WA Schools we use Design Technology rather than Engineering; Design Technology uses woodwork, metalwork robotics etc. to cover an introduction to the Engineering field.
