In this segment from Cyberchase, the CyberSquad develops the new Digifizz toy, which sends a tiny burst of sparkles shooting into the air each time it is used. With the toy gaining popularity, the CyberSquad must figure out how many Digifizz toys to produce in order to meet the demand. Using what they call "The Multiplier Effect" they find out that the number of Digifizz toys they must make can be calculated by multiplying the number of students in each class by the product of the number of classes and the number of schools. It turns out to be a lot of Digifizz!
