He then writes A, B, C and D with these four figures under the letters:—

Then he multiplies A &B and gets (1 x 5) equals 5 B and C (5 x 8) and gets 40 C and D (8 x 4) and gets 32 D and A (4 x 1) and gets 4

It will be seen that these four numbers total 81. Imagine he reads out 5, 40 and 4. The magician secretly adds these together and gets 49. He then tells the victim to concentrate on the other number (i.e. 32). The magician then subtracts the 49 from 81 and gets 32 . . . the very number the victim is thinking about!

The whole thing seems impossible, doesn't it? It is possible to find figures (e.g. 5526) where the digits add up to 18 but by applying the A. B, C business you can't arrive at a total of 81, so I suppose that you must start with a number where 9 is the centre figure and the other two figures total 9. I can't explain it, I'm not even sure that it always works, but I'm sure it will shake your skull if you think about it long enough !
