In this mental magic trick you will confuse the sceptics in your audience by correctly predicting the result of a complex series of calculations and then revealing your prediction in an unusual way.
Before you begin you will need:
You will also need to open the magazine at page number 9 and write in bold letters using the marker pen “I got here first” because this will be your prediction!
Here is a demonstration of this magical calculation:
(a) 8253 (first number thought of)
(b) 3285 (original digits jumbled up)
(c) 8253 – 3285 = 4968
(d) 4+9+6+8 = 27 So, as this is 2 digit number add the two digits: 2+7
The final part and real flourish of this trick comes next. Just hand the magazine to the spectator and ask them to open it at the page which corresponds to the number that they finished up with in their calculation. This, of course, you could not possibly have known!!
