call for the product of four multiplicands, and the two-element version
For very large multiplier, a large number of multiplicands to be added.
Ignoring multiplying and dividing may reflect practitioners' recognition of the potential for confusion (and unrealistic challenge) in expecting fourth graders to simultaneously acquire understanding of nonintuitive fraction principles (e.g., there is no counting sequence; two whole numbers are combined in notation that determines the value of one fractional value) in the same timeframe as they acquire nonintuitive understanding of fraction multiplication and division (in which products are smaller than multipliers and multiplicands and quotients are larger than divisors and dividends).
var multipliers = new List<Func<int, int>>(); var multiplicands = new[ ] {10, 20, 30}; foreach(int m in multiplicands) multipliers.Add(x => x * m); var timesTen = multipliers[0]; Console.writeLine(timesTen(50));
Also, the biggest drawback with this estimation method is that it disregards the effect of one of the multiplicands being a constant.

The seven different multiplicands employed in this algorithm are given in Table 1.
hen using binary representations of the multiplicands it is easy to see that multiplications can be performed using the basic Shift-And-Add multiplication algorithm [24].
