Product Description
To fill in the blanks in this unique puzzle, and find the answer to the quote (and its source), match the date/number below the blank with the letters and events below. If you do not recall the date of the events listed, I’ve given you the math wherewithal to calculate the date. Of course, it might help to learn/remember that a quick way to subtract mentally is by “over-subtracting.” Consider 736 – 198. Instead of subtracting 198, subtract 200; it’s easier to subtract from 736. So, 736 – 200 is 536. But you subtracted two too much, so add the two back on to the 536 to get 538, which is the difference betwixt 736 and 198. You may also have to remember some basic powers . . . which means you’ll have some powerful fun decoding the quote.
