Google honors Shakuntala Devi with a doodle

How long will it take to multiply these two numbers ?

7,686,369,774,870 × 2,465,099,745,779

It just took 28 seconds for Shakuntala Devi and earned her a record in the Guinness Book Of Records.  A child prodigy with unbelievable power to calculate will remain an inspiration to so many.  She died earlier this year.

Google’s doodle today honors Shakuntala Devi, known to the world as the ‘Human Computer’, on her 84th birthday.
