    Question about "put two and two together"

    What does " put two and two together" mean here? Thank you!

    SAM
    In this particular area, yes.

    MALLORY
    The 18th President was Ulysses S. Grant, and the Roosevelt Room was named for Theodore.

    SAM
    Really?

    MALLORY
    There’s like a six-foot painting on the wall of Teddy Roosevelt.

    SAM
    I should’ve put two and two together.

    MALLORY
    Yes.

    SAM
    Look, the thing is, while there are really a great many things I can speak with
    authority, I’m not good at talking about the White House.
