## MATHOMATICSThis is a card trick I find very useful when a spectator makes it impossible for you to do the trick.I call the trick ,Mathomatic. Mathematical discovery-- ask a person to choose a card. tell him to remember it's numerical value (ace = one, jack- = 11, queen = 12, king = 13) ---also the suit of the card. Tell them to double the value of the card Then tell them to add three to the total Then tell them to multiply the complete total by five This done ask them to concentrate on the suit If the card is a diamond they must add one If the card is a club they must add two If the card is a heart they must add three If the card is a spade they must add four They must then tell you the final total From it you immediately know the chosen card The secret is to mentally subtract 15 from the given total--you will have a number of two figures- possibly three The last figure gives you the suit(diamonds 1, clubs 2, hearts 3, spades 4.) while the first figure gives you the suit. Example: Jack of clubs 11 doublesd is 22, add 3--25, multiply by 5--125. add for clubs--makes 127. You are told that number Subtract 15 mentally. result 112. last figure (2) means clubs, first figure(11) means jack. Math-Magic Mental Agility Feedback |
