In a time where students are forced to resort to rote learning, the rather clever mathematics trick was a breath of fresh air. “Whaaaat? I didn’t know about this clever shortcut. Wish she had been MY math teacher,” wrote the 64-year-old on Twitter.
Mahindra also claimed that if he knew these tricks back when he was a kid, he would have performed a lot better at mathematics.
However, what followed next took the Twitterverse by surprise. Shah Rukh Khan took notice of Mahindra’s tweet and gave a tongue-in-cheek response to it.
“Can’t tell you how many of my life’s issues this one simple calculation has solved wow!” wrote King Khan.
