Six-year-old Mathematical Prodigy

Nguyen Thanh Huong, a 6 year-old girl from the Vinh Long Province, learnt to read, write and worked out the multiplication tables by herself at the age of three.

Ms Nguyen Thi Hong Sa, who runs the infant school where Huong studied, recounted that she was impressed by Huong’s ability to read the alphabet fluently after only 2 days of study.

At present, Huong has no difficulty in doing elaborate sums for grade-four level students and finds it easy to hold large numbers in her head; thus, it only took her a couple of minutes to do complicated multiplication sums involving 3 and 4-digit numbers.

A reporter from the Thanh Nien Newspaper put her abilities to the test and reported that the 6-year-old prodigy can easily do difficult mental arithmetic, such as 12,450/15 and 12,094*29.
