Give me a four digit number. At this point I will give you a number

Then you give me another 4 digit number

I give you a 4 digit number

You give me a 4 digit number

I give you a 4 digit number

Add up all the numbers and it will equal the number I gave you in step
one.

We can do this with as many people who offer a number. We can do it
with multiple people and multiple numbers as long as the final number remains with the person who submitted the first 4 digit number.

Example:

You give me a number

-----4729, I give you a Final Number #####

You-####

Me--####

You-####

Me--####

___________________

Add em up. The total will be the number identified above as Final Number,

To make it readable, every day I will summarize everyone's numbers like so:

Person 1

#### - Final Number #####

#### - Person 1

#### - me

Person 2

#### - Final Number #####

(waiting on 2nd #)

Person 3

#### - Final Number #####

#### - Person 3

#### - me

#### - Person 3

#### - Me

_____________

##### - Note total ads up to Final Number given above for Person 3

Then after all is done, I'll give you the answer to the magic. It's a great ice breaker.

Does it work in hexadecimal?

IMP, You're not supposed to know until we get to the end, which is one more number from everyone and one more from me, then we add em up.

DeleteIt's impressive and more so when you do it for someone in person because it is very quick and you can see I'm not sitting around with a calculator or even thinking hard.

Sorry kid. Half the time I don't even know what you're asking with this post. Give me an honest question and I'll give you an honest answer. I promise.

ReplyDeleteCube, give me one more 4 digit number please. :)

DeleteOk, Not sure if the remaining folks want to keep going SO - here is how this trick works.

ReplyDeleteObviously, it is a lot more impressive in person. Next time you're around someone, here is what you do.

Pencil and paper

Ask them to write down a 4 digit number.

At this point, Say they give you 3176.

You take another piece of paper and write down 23174, fold it over and hand it to them and tell them to put it in their pocket. What you did was to subtract 2 from the number they gave you. Then you took the 2 you subtracted and moved it all the way to the left.

3176 - 2 = 3174. Take the 2 and put it left of the 3174 to get 23174.

Ask them for another 4 digit number. Makes it more impressive as they have given you the first 2 numbers.

Say they give you 1075.

Write 1075 below the 3176, Now you have written

3176

1075

Subtract 1075 from 9999 and write the answer below 1075. to do it quickly, subtract each of the 4 individual numbers and write the answer down. 1 from 9 is 8, 0 from 9 is 9, 7 from 9 is 2, 5 from 9 is 4

Now you have:

3176

1075

8924 (9999-1075 = 8924)

ask them for another 4 digit number, they give you 8077

Now you have:

3176

1075

8924 (9999-1075 = 8924)

8077, subtract 8077 from 9999, and get 1922, write it below 8077 and tell the person to add up the 5 numbers

Now you have:

3176

1075

8924 (9999-1075 = 8924)

8077

1922 (9999 - 8077 = 1922)

_______

When they add up the numbers the answer will be equal to the number you wrote on the paper and handed to them.

Practice it a few times and see how simple it is.
