There are only 10 sorts of people in the world; those who can count in binary and those who cannot.

Nobody has mentioned doing the nine times table (up to ten) on your fingers. You select the finger counting from the left for the multiple you want:

one, there are no fingers to the left, nine to the right so 1x9=09

two, there is one to the left, eight to the right, so 2x9=18


five, there are four to the left, five to the right so 5x9=45
