Do you like math or just like to have fun with numbers? Well here's some great tricks for you to dazzle your friends with.
this trick, you will need a pencil and two pieces of paper. First write down
your number on one of the sheets of paper. Fold your paper so that your
friend canít see it. Now give a sheet of paper to your friend. Tell him or
her to think of a number and then write it down. But before he or she writes
it down, tell him or her to have a three-digit number and have the largest
number first then the smaller number and then the smallest number. For
example: 742 or 971. Tell him not to let you see his number. Letís pretend
that the number is 861. Next tell him or her to turn the number around. The
number would be 168. Now tell him or her to subtract the smallest number
from the largest one. This would be 693. Now ask your partner to turn that
number around and then the number would be 396. Now add them both together.
This would be 1089. Now give him or her your paper and then watch his face
when he sees that your number was 1089. The answer is always going to be
1089 so always write that number down.
need a pencil and a piece of paper. Give them to your friend and ask him to
think of a number between 1 and 10. Then tell him or her to write their
number on the sheet of paper. Have him or her put the paper where no one can
see it! Letís pretend your number is 6. You have to double it (12). Then
tell him or her to add ten to the answer (22) and then divide that by two
(11). Now tell your friend to yell out his or her final number (11). When he
or her yells out their number all you have to do is subtract 5 (6). The
trick will work every time. You
have the simple job and your partner has the hard job. You can also use
higher numbers than 10 such
as 12 or 105.
will need two pieces of paper a pencil and another sheet of paper numbered
from 1 to 31. Give the sheet of paper with numbers on it to your friend. Have
him or her circle three numbers in a row. For example 17, 18, and 19. Now
tell your friend to add the three numbers together. For example, 54. Tell
him or her to write their answer down on a sheet of paper and give the piece
of paper to you. All you have to do is divide the answer by 3. For example,
54 divided by 3 equals 18. The number you come out with will be the middle
number. So now you add 1 to 18 (19) and subtract 1 from 18 (17). Now you can
do this with any number.
this trick you can tell someone their age the month that they were born in
and the day they were born on. Now tell your friend to:
2 digits on the right is the personís age. The 2 digits on the left from
the personís age is the day that they were born on. The numbers that are
left are the month your friend was born in.
is an example: Pretend that the personís age is 16 and was born on
2 numbers on the right tell you he is 16. The middle numbers tells you the
day of the month he was born. The first 2 numbers tell you he was born in
the 11th month, November.
Write down their street number: 2979
Give a person these instructions:
1)Write down your age (actually you can just write down any number if
you ask for the total. Suppose
that someone writes down 23. They
multiply it by 3 getting 69. The
person adds 1 getting 70. It is
multiplied by 3 equaling 210 and the original number is added which equals
233. When you are told this
number you take away the last digit. This
gives you 23, which is the original number.
Then you ask for the total. Suppose that someone writes down 23. They multiply it by 3 getting 69. The person adds 1 getting 70. It is multiplied by 3 equaling 210 and the original number is added which equals 233. When you are told this number you take away the last digit. This gives you 23, which is the original number.
will need 3 dice. Give the
person 3 dice saying, ďWhen my back is turned please roll these 3 dice.Ē
Now tell the person these directions:
say, ďWhat total did you get?Ē You subtract 250 from the number.
Suppose the person tells you 612.
612-250=362. So the numbers showing on the dice are 3, 6, and 2.
