Say a physics Ph.D. just got job in a bank. He is a quant. There is a presentation going on. Suddenly, there is a need to add five numbers very fast. And he is new on the job. His boss is in the room. The numbers are below.

$211,043

$229,951

$174,606

$164,342

$164,760

Is it reasonable to expect this fresh math whiz to be able to instantaneously add these numbers? I mean in his head?
