*Math
Magic*

Here's a neat magic trick that you
can dazel your friends and co-workers with.
Pick a two digit number (bigger then
9)
Add those two digits together (example
number 62, add 6 + 2 = 8)
Now subtract that number from the original
(example 62 - 8 = 54)
The last step is to add two digits
from the previous step together (example 5 + 4 = 9)
The number you will always get is 9
Try it a few times....neat isn't it.
Why this
works

Here's another number one.
Pick a number any number
Add 29
Subtract 1
Subtract 15
Subract 7
Add 23
Subract the Original number
Your number is 29
I'm not even going to write a proof
for this one, it's really easy to figure out why it works.

Here's Just some cool shapes that make
you think twice
*These pictures are from www.ebaumsworld.com*
Is this circle perfectly round?
Are these lines straight?
Focus your eyes on the blue circle,
move your head close to the screen
Which side is bigger AB or BC?
