    Another interesting observation is that the middle digit of the product corresponds to the number of ones you used for each multiplier.

    if a stock you own moves $5, from $15 per share to $20 per share; that is a 33% increase.

    However if a stock moves the same $5 amount, from $20 per share to $15 per share; that is a 25% decrease.

    simple math, but most people dont realize this.

    But in your first instance, you're starting at $15. In the second instance, you're starting at $20.

    yeah i know percent change depends on the starting number, but its a simple thing most dont realize.

    I actually have a riddle for people, to see if they are financially literate.

    "suppose you have an investment portfolio (any amount you chose), and the first year you incur a loss of 50%; and in the second year you have a gain of 100%. What is your total loss or gain for the 2 years?

    This one actually works pretty well at parties:

    3 men go into a motel. The man behind the desk says the room is $30, so each man pays $10 and goes up to their room.

    A while later the manager behind the desk realizes the room was only $25, so he sends the bellboy to the 3 guys' room with $5. On the way, the bellboy can't figure out how to split $5 evenly between 3 men, so he decides to give each man $1 and keeps the other $2 for himself.

    So, the 3 men each ultimately paid $9 for the room, which is a total of $27. Add the $2 that the bellboy kept brings the total to $29.

    Where is the missing dollar!?

    $10 - initially paid by each man.
    -$ 1 - returned to each man.
    $ 9 - net cost to each man.
    x 3 - number of men.
    $27 - total out of pocket for the men.
    +$ 2 - what the bell boy keeps.
    $29 - total account for dollars.

    Maybe the hired "entertainment" has it?
