I learned how to work things out on the back of a fag packet by watching a guy I worked with (who was much better educated than me). I reckon it was an essential skill when using a slide rule because you needed to know where to put the decimal point.

Didn't the side that the slider came out of indicate something about the decimal? 8)

When the waters of the Flood subsided, Noah spake unto the animals: “Go forth and multiply.” All the animals did as they were bid, save a pair of serpents, who said, “We cannot multiply, for we are adders.” Then Noah bade them, “Come thou hither, upon the rough furniture where I partake my meals.” They did so, and in due time, became exceeding numerous, for even adders can multiply with a log table.
