1.Okay, think of one number... one digit is the best.

2. Morgan gives you that much

3. I give you...say, 6.

4. divide by 2.

5. Give back Morgan how much he gave you.

6. The remaining number is 3. BerkaZerka

1. 2

2. 2

3. 2 + 6 = 8

4. 8 / 2 = 4

5. 4 - 2 = 2

6. The remaining number is 3. (um, no...) TheNewIAP

Just looking at it, I'd say you were supposed to add 1&2...(which you give back after dividing) BerkaZerka

Starting number: 7

Divide by 2: 10

Subtract 7: 3

The wording is just poorly phrased. FeanorOnForge

Ah, makes a lot more sense if you add 1. And 2. ISentinelPenguinI

1. -6

2. Dammit! Morgan stole my six ones that I didn't have!

3. Now it's zero.

4. 0/2 is zero.

5. Now it's either 6 or -6. I don't know, I can't math. Either way, it's not three.

6. DAMMIT, YOU LIED! TheNewIAP

How does -6+-6 equal 0? EndMaster

## Math trick

1. -6

2. -6 + -6 = -12

3. -12 + 6 = -6

4. -6 / 2 = -3

5. -3 - -6 = 3

Still works. TheNewIAP

1. √2
2. √2 + √2 = 2√2
3. 2√2 + 6 = 2√2 + 6
4. (2√2 + 6) ÷ 2 = √2 + 3
5. √2 + 3 - √2 = 3
6. Yep.  3 is still 3  ; ) Ford

Here's another one, guys.

Pick a number, add 2, multiply by 3 subtract 6, and divide by 3. You get the same number as you picked. TacocaT

(((X+2)3)-6)%3

Simplified slightly: 3X+6-6%3

(%=division sign, X=chosen number.)

Same general thing as my post below. betaband

## Math trick

i, 2i, 2i+6, i+3, 3.

Even works with most imaginary numbers.

Infinity, infinity, infinity, infinity, infinity. TacocaT

## Math trick

(2X+6)%2-X

The divide by two makes it X+3, minus X, leaves only three each time no matter what the number is. I'm pretty sure this stuff is common knowledge and I don't see why you're making a thread about it.

(%=division sign, X=chosen number.) Delta44
