# I Will Predict Your Number – Math Magic Trick

Hi this is Presh Talwalkar

How predictable are you?

Lets find out in this video.

In front of you are the numbers 1 through 16

To get started, I want you to pick a number

You can pick any of these sixteen numbers

But you should remember which number you’ve picked

It might help if you circled it

as you’ll need to remember this number for the rest of the video.

Now I want you to pick a second number.

And I want one condition: I want that number to be in a different row

and a different column from the first number you’ve picked.

So if you picked the number 10 as your first number,

the next number you pick should not be in the same row,

and it should not be in the same column.

So you can pick from any of the remaining numbers

that are not in the same row and the same column as the first number you’ve picked

I also want you to remember this number

so remember the first number you’ve picked

and the second number you’ve picked

You’re gonna repeat this process: pick a third number

that’s in a different row and a different column

from the first two numbers you’ve picked.

So you don’t want this number to be in the same row

or the same column as either of the first two numbers you’ve picked.

So now you’ve picked THREE different numbers

and I want you to remember them

because you’re gonna have to do one more thing

I want you to pick a fourth number

that’s also in a different row and in a different column.

from the previous three number you’ve picked.

So if you’ve followed along correctly,

you’ve now picked FOUR numbers,

and you played according to the rules where they are in different

rows or in different columns

so your numbers might end up looking something like this.

So you’ve got your four numbers

and I want you to ADD up these four numbers

so there’s no way I could’ve known what first number

you’ve picked, or the second number was, or third or the fourth.

But now here comes a prediction.

Add up those four numbers you have

and here is what my prediction is:

My prediction is the sum of your numbers is 34.

Am I correct?

If you want to know how this trick works,

you can follow a link in the video description

where I describe the mathematical proof

in a blog post.

For 38

14+12+7+5=38

I got 30

HOW?

Lol I got 30 suc it

IT BARELY WORKED MAN!!!

HOW YOU DO IT?!?!?!?

This is bs I got 30, what happened bro

5 numbers off I got 39

How?

I got 46

Any numbers in different rows and Collums will equal 34 always

An easy trick with a magical matrix 🙂

Yah

Mine was 32 and you predicted 34 😎

I got 33 my numbers were 11,5,4,13

All answers are the same… 34!!! 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽

Okay i get it so not matter what i do when i will take all 4 and add them i will get 34, rest is easy to predict

My numbers was 3 6 9 16 =34

Me: How about 11, 8, 2, and 13

Him: So your screen should look something similar to this

Chooses the numbers I didMe:

YOU DIDN’T EVEN GET TO THE TRICK YET—No

The answer is 30

Wrong 😕

You never picked a number

34

No

Its a formula…not a prediction. Try repeat the procedure, the outcome is the same… Lol.

simple math logic duh

nothing impressive..

logic is so simple

I add to get it 23

Waste of time

how did you make that?

Remaining numbers are all equal to 34

I didn't pick a number

16 11 5 2 = 34…

me(in my mind):8,13,2,11

you:8,13,2,11

i began to sweatWorst

Its not prediction its just a consequencep

Hahha jokes on you i got 26

You don't pridect my number 35

Take any number and divide it by zero . So i guess your answer is zero

Myn is 1 10 12 8 so that's 31 wrong bats that's ok

All of them if u add it's 34

All of those condition, just if you follow the rules they will always be 34

Ok

Old school

1:48 I swear I chose the exsact 4 numbers

Junk

Different row different dit different that this is not magic

I got 40

Jokes on him,I got 36 and my friend got 35

First of all my numbers were 14/11/8/1 that did not match. And secondly either way the total will be 34. As it can't be anything else.

There's a pattern that you could get a 34 in every collum try to shuffle the number in the table and you not gonna get 34

He got all right I'm sweating

no its 35

Still waiting to predict my number

I got 5 2 11 16 close

Pic 2 LOL fake

Fara sempre 34

👏

I got 29 haha

I got 35

Fake, I Got 24

Jokes on you I'm bad at math so I got 69

How did u know

That’s so cool

all is 34 in total….hahahaha

Ur wronh

Hacker

The last example was exactly like i had

I'm 35.. 2,7,10,16

Its no trick

Useless

Waste of time

👎👎👎

He chooses all 4 numbers at the end that were mine

1:48 I legit picked all of these numbers exactly!

no no noooooooo howwwwww

35 so close

I got 22

I got 46 MR ABITCHHHHH

Nah its wrong maybe i calcılated wrong but i dont think so

But you didnt guest my numbers …

8 2 13 10 for me

So cool

Bad

Fake

My number was 33

Wrong

I had 6, 13 , 4 , 11

Mine was 35

Bruh you got it so wrong I had 36 like I'm saying bruh

I got 39 :/ doesn't work

33!!

1:51 lmfao he already predicted all my chosen numbers xdddd

I got 42 😂

At 1:53 those were all my 4 numbers.

Me: surely he doesn't know what numbers i picked

Him: Circles 2, 8, 11, and 13

Me: 😅

Yes you are

Someone has to be really bad at numbers and addition to fail to understand what he did. Different rows and columns will always add to same number, crap video, he didn't even guess those numbers.

I chose 14, 8, 1 and 11 but got 31 in total. Or is it just me who sucks at maths? 😂

They all add up to 34 if my big ass brain is correct

I had 2 8 11 13…

Thats kind of scary without the math behind it

They all add up to 34

Nobody:
