Solve the Logic Puzzles – Magic Math Tricks for Kids
The idea behind these puzzles and tricks is all about writing down the final answer which will come out in a piece of paper and sealing this paper to add more suspense to the game. The kid will then ask his/her friend to go through some steps which he/she is going to provide and they will find their answer in that paper.
There are a couple of steps to be followed for this logic puzzle to be solved and for the puzzle pieces to come along. The kid should first practice the steps needed in order to become a mathemagician and not appear like reading from a piece of paper. These steps which the child will ask his/her friend or family member to follow are:
– First, ask your friend to choose a whole number that is bigger than zero.
– Second, ask your friend to square that number (which is the same as multiplying it by itself) ().
– Third, let your friend add the original number to the squared number they have.
– Fourth, ask your friend now to divide the number they have by the original number they have chosen.
– Fifth, now let them add 17 to their calculation mission.
– Sixth, let your friend take away the original number.
– Seventh and finally, ask your friend to eventually divide the number they now have by 6.
The final answer for this trick will be always 3 and the magic is when the person you are doing this trick for brings out their final answer and find it the same as the one they have calculated at the end.
