A Math Competition In Vegas REALLY
Las Vegas is known for a quirky, kinky international competitions, but brainy is usually not one of them.
Today and tomorrow you can head to The Western Hotel on Fremont Street downtown to watch the Zappos Memoriad Las Vegas Games 2016. This is a world memory, mental calculation and speed reading competition. To date 162 participants form 27 countries will participate in times events like:
Finding the square roots of 10-digit numbers
Multiplying 20-digit numbers
Oh, and they have to do this all in their heads.
Las Vegas resident Scott Flansburg set the Guiness World Record for "Fastest Human Calculator." He correctly added 38 to itself 36 times in 15 seconds in his head.
Like the Olympics, the Memoriad happens every four years. It was in Turkey in 2012.
Personally, I would have trouble adding 38 plus 38 in my head in 15 seconds. But I loved the TV show Numbers and find Scorpion fun. Hopefully the Memoriad will be just as entertaining!
