100% Or 7+3=10 and 6-3=3 so 7+6=10+3=13

Oh shit didn’t know that was my adhd. I always knew I was a low functioning ADHDer not medicated but I never really knew that I was a low functioning ADHDer until I was out in the world all alone as an adult and holy hell, everything I am, do, love, hate, everything can be traced back to my adhd. It’s fricking nuts

Definitely. It’s how I got through math in K-12. And why my math homework took 2 hours a day to finish.

That’s my go-to math solution for sure! When tipping. “If 10% of $70 is $7, half of that is $3.50, 7.00 + $3.50 … 15% tip is $10.50 🤪
