How to Mind Read

On Monday (6 October 2008), there was a…uh….something like a presentation about skills in mathematics in school.

There was a student who was bored, so he talked and then the teacher asked him to stand up. He also asked someone for a piece of paper and wrote a number on it. He folded it and then gave it to the student who was standing.

After that, he wrote numbers on a white board, like this:

1 2 3 4
5 6 7
8 9 0

Next, he asked the student what four numbers he hated most. Next, the teacher crossed out the numbers that he hated.

1 2 3 4
5
6 7
8 9
0

Now, the teacher asked for four numbers that he loved among 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, and 9.

And then he crossed out the numbers mentioned.

Now, it looks like this:

1 2 3 4
5
6 7
8 9 0

After that, he asked for one number that he loved, and crossed it out.
Now it is:

1 2 3 4
5
6 7
8 9 0

And then the student unfolded the paper, and in there was written, ‘5’.
So, the teacher said that all the students should be quiet and pay attention because he can read minds. LOL!

The Secret

Well, you know what? I found out how he did that by my own! And I thought it was pretty easy.
