Oi oi - some folks make a living from being mathematicians! Plus, I was lazy and got a spreadsheet to do it for me

Well here's another one for all you career mathematician IA-ers out there to play with...

Apparently if you multiply

**111,111,111 ** by itself, it produces this rather elegant answer...

**12345678987654321**.

Spooky or what?

So, get your spreadsheets out and answer this...

**Is it true that 111,111,111 x 111,111,111 really = 12,345,678,987,654,321 ?**[attachment deleted by admin]
