Your Number Is...

by Ian

THE EFFECT: Think of a number, double it, add 8, divide it by 2, now subtract it by the first number you started with. Your answer is 4.


THE SECRET: The answer is always half of what you add. You can add 2, 4, 6, 8, etc. But it will always be half of what you add! HAVE FUN :-)

Your Number Is NEW
by: Anonymous

Your Number is really a fun and we did this in our childhood and it is a good reminder about that memory. Student life is always great and we learned a lot in our studies. SO for the students best-dissertations.org writing service is taking serious measure so that students will always have the best content in their submissions.

How??
by: Anonymous

I've done the trick a lotta times and even picking numbers from 1-10, I never got half of what I added, so the trick failed. If I chose higher numbers, like 37, for example, doubling it makes it 74+8 makes it 82 / 2 makes it 41. Please help with this trick.


----YOU FORGOT TO SUBTRACT THE NUMBER YOU STARTED WITH!!

What happens if they pick "Emu" for the commented amendment to the trick?

Better way
by: Anonymous

You can expand on this more, which is what I do. After they come up with four, tell them that A is 1, B is 2, C is 3, D is 4, E is 5, and so on. Tell them to think of a state that starts with that letter(Delaware is the only D state). Tell them to think of the second letter of the state, and think of an animal that starts with that letter. Tell them to keep thinking of the color. Keep thinking, keep thinking. Then say "Oh! There are gray elephants in Delaware"! It has a much greater effect than this.
