Unformatted text preview: product: (24,621.5) 2 – (21,247.5) 2 = product 606,218,262.3 – 451,456,256.3 = 154,762,006 The product should be written in sexagisimal notation: 154,762,006 = (154,762,006 / 60) = 2,579,366, 46 = (2,578,366 / 60), 46 = 42989, 26, 46 = (42,989 / 60), 26, 46 = 716, 29, 26, 46 = (716 / 60), 29, 26, 46 = 11, 56, 29, 26, 46 And we can check this by: 11, 56, 29, 26, 46 = (11 x 60 4 ) + (56 x 60 3 ) + (29 x 60 2 ) + (26 x 60) + 46 = 154,762,006 Also, check by: 12, 44, 29 x 56, 14 2, 58, 22, 46 11, 53, 31, 4 . 11, 56, 29, 26, 46  And we can see that this matches up with the average / semidifference answer above, so this is the correct answer....
