This is a fun trick you can use to amaze family & friends, who’ll be left scratching their heads, wondering – how did he know that? It works the same for one or more people at once, but you must be very clear in providing the proper instructions.

**Note:** I’ll post the answer tomorrow, so, if you’d like, you can play along today!

*I have a trick I’d like to show you. It requires that you do some math, and you’re welcome to use a calculator if you’d like – but, it isn’t necessary.*

*Pick a number from 1-100 and don’t tell me. Keep it secret, and let me know when you’ve selected a number.*

Ok*. Multiply that number by 9…*

*Is your answer 2 or more digits long, yes or no?*

If they say, “no”, then continue to **The Next Step** – see below.

If they say “yes”, then you say –

*Ok. Now, add the digits together. For example, if your answer was 123, then add the “1” plus the “2” plus the “3” together to get a new number of “6”.*

Next, rephrase the same question –

*Is this new number still 2 or more digits long?*

If so, have them add the digits together again & ask once more.

This time, they’ll answer “no” – continue to **The Next Step**.

The Next Step

*Next, I’d like you to subtract 5 from your number…*

*Now I’d like you to assign your answer to its corresponding letter in the alphabet; for example, 1 = A, 2 = B, 3 = C, and so on. Let me know when you’ve done this.*

Ok. *Think of the name of a country in the north that begins with that letter. Let me know when you’re ready to continue.*

*Next, move one letter further into the alphabet, and think of the name of a very large land animal beginning with that letter.*

Conclusion

I’ll provide the answer…tomorrow. See you then!
