Join three numbers by drawing a line. The line must pass through the number at the centre.
2.How many such lines can you draw?
Ans. Four such lines can be drawn.
3.Add the three numbers on each of these lines. What do you notice?
Ans. 5 + 13 + 21 = 39 6 + 13 +20 = 39
7 + 13 + 19 = 39 12 + 13 + 14 = 39
On adding these numbers, it is noticed that the total of each such line is the same.
4.Now look at the calendar of 2006. Also look for the present month and draw any similar square in your notebook. Does the magic work for these?
Ans.The calendar of February 2006 is as under:
Number 14 is in the centre of the square. On joining three numbers in a line we have.
On adding these numbers, we get
6 + 14 + 22 = 42
7 + 14 + 21 = 42
8 + 14 + 20 = 42
13 + 14 + 15 = 42
The total of each line is the same. Yes, the magic also works here.
5.Is this magic possible on a 10 x 10 number chart. Go to the Chapter ‘Fun with Numbers’ and check.
Ans. Let us select any two squares
In the first square we have
31 + 22 + 13 = 66
32 +’22 + 12 = 66
33 + 22 + 11 = 66
21 + 22 + 23 = 66
Therefore, magic works.
In the second square, we have
61 + 52 + 43 + 34 + 25 = 215
63 + 53 + 43 + 33 + 23 = 215
65 + 54 + 43 + 32 + 21 = 215
41 + 24 + 43 + 44 + 45 = 215
Therefore, magic also works here.
