Tried it three times and it's true,Although this early on a Saturday my math might be a little fuzzy...
Hmm... Magic? Or Mathematical Sleight of Hand? Think of a number. Triple it. Add twelve. Divide it by three. Then subtract the number you originally started with. Your answer is 4. Think of a number. Quadruple it. Add twenty. Cut it in half. Cut it in half again. Then subtract the number you originally started with. Your answer is 5.There seems to be a pattern here... :)
I could have done this with fours????? She says like the people in the commercial who say, "I could have had a V8?"
it isn't true if you're bad at math
It's the Devil's Magic. And LOL @ Adam.
I love Adam's and Debra's comment!
you lost me at 'think' :)
I tried it, and sure enough...
Way cool! (And I laughed out loud with Adam's comment :)
Okay, I got sucker into doing this. But I'm always the guy in the audience who thinks he knows where the disappearing rabbit went when the magician put it in his hat...I got no clue. Frick'n rabbit.
(((X x 2) + 6) / 2) - X = 3

It works! I suck at math, so I was sure I'd mess it up, but....
Three cheers for three!
