How to master mental calculations 2

Very useful are the skills of mental addition and multiplication, when you need to understand how much would you pay for your purchases. Subtraction is also valuable when you need to calculate how much change should be returned. Probably the most difficult is the multiplication. I will give you a life example. When I buy artesian water by weight, I need to multiply the number of liters by the cost of one liter. Suppose I take 24 liters of 1.60 hryvnias per liter. Can you calculate in your mind how much it would cost?

Addition and multiplication mental skills can be very useful(Sentence is fragmented-make sure to have subject any verb) Very useful are the skills of mental addition and multiplication, when you need to understand how much would you pay for your purchases.
