When multiplying 2 numbers with difference of two (for example 7 and 9, 11 and 13, 24 and 26), find the square of the mean of the 2 numbers, and then subtract it by 1.

Example:

7 x 9 = 8² – 1 = 64 – 1 = 63

11 x 13 = 12² - 1 = 144 – 1 = 143

24 x 26 = 25² - 1 = 625 – 1 = 624

Exercise:

- 14 x 16 =
- 20 x 22 =
- 34 x 36 =
