Grandpa Pencil's
Magic Numbers Trick


G'day Cobber, I am going to show you how to amaze your friends with a neat Magic Numbers trick, but you have to promise not to tell anyone how it is done, OK ?

  • Print the pick a number sheet onto A4 paper or light white board (if your printer is out of ink, like mine, you can copy the page neatly by hand).

  • Ask a friend to think of a number between one and sixty three and have them write it secretly on a piece of paper.

  • Ask them to tell you all of the columns, on the pick a number sheet, that their number appears in.
  • Without them knowing, add up the top numbers of each of the selected columns and the total will be their number.
