    Okay.

    Think of a number (any number)
    Double it
    + on 8
    Next divide it by 2
    Now, take away your original number from the number you have at the minute.

    Then leave a post saying your "I've done it" an I'll reply to you as quick as possible and guess your number.

    Number tricks can be fun. Are you up for another one?

    Take any three digit number, say 345, but make the digits different. You cannot do 333 or 343 for example. Now reverse it, to 543. Subtract the smaller from the larger. What is the last digit in the answer? In this case,

    543
    -345
    ------
    198

    so the last digit is 8. But what is your last digit? Then I'll tell you your complete answer.
     
  9. I don't get it, my number wasn't 4 ...?
