COMMENTS

There are no carries in lunar arithmetic. For each pair of lunar digits, to Add, take the lArger, but to Multiply, take the sMaller. For example:
169
+ 248

269
and
169
x 248

168
144
+ 122

12468
Addition and multiplication are associative and commutative and multiplication distributes over addition. E.g., 357 * (169 + 248) = 357 * 269 = 23567 = 13567 + 23457 = (357 * 169) + (357 * 248). Note that 0 + x = x and 9*x = x for all x.
