"My name's Mike Byster, and according to psychologists … I have one of the fastest mathematical minds in the world."
This is what Mike Byster told students at his "Mike's Math" seminars, and he wasn't exaggerating.
Mike Byster is a math teacher, but he's also a human calculator. He can answer complex math problems in front of his students instantaneously: Miss Lewis: "999 divides by 56?" Byster: "That equals 17.83928571."
