A little known Math Magic Principle

So the other day someone asked if I knew how to force the number 3. There is a very old math magic principle that does just that. Its not that useful but it’s one of those things is nice to know in case you need it.

Think of any number between 1 and 10

Double that number

Add 6

Half that result

Take away the number you first thought of

Answer = 3

Here is another little add on to this … with very little changes you can use this formula to work with any number.

For Example

Let says you wanted to force the number 25

Think of a number between 1 and 100

double that number

add 50 (this is the secret element, this number is DOUBLE YOUR FORCE NUMBER.)

half that result

take away the first thought of number

Answer = 25
