Are short multiplication formulas a thing kids everywhere have to memorize?
@BadAtNames What do you mean, like the times table? Or things like "a(b+c) = ab + ac" ?
(a+b)^2 = a^2 + 2ab + b^2
@BadAtNames Oh, sure. Then, yeah, almost certainly.
@apetresc I thought so but I couldn't find what they were called in english
@BadAtNames I guess the formal name for them are "algebraic identities".
@apetresc that's a more catch-all term than what I was looking for but thanks anyways
