## Method My Automatic Magic Square

An automatic magic square is a magic square with 12 fixed numbers and only 4 numbers that change with each performance. The 12 fixed numbers must be memorized. Only 4 simple mathematical calculations are ncecssary to determine the 4 remaining numbers. What follows is an automatic magic square that can be used for any total above 30.

The fixed numbers I memorize lor my automatic square are:

11 |
14 |
5 |
A |

4 |
B |
10 |
15 |

C |
7 |
12 |
9 |

13 |
8 |
D |
6 |

The mathematics to complete the magic square are simple. Let's say you want to complete a magic square for the target number 47. Here is the simple math:

A is 47 minus 30 A is 17

Here is the completed automatic magic square for 47:

1'his automatic magic square has these advantages:

I start by filling in the numbers on the top row. My first calculation (A) involves subtracting 30 from the target number. This couldn't be much easier! And A becomes a visual key for calculating the remaining numbers.

B is one row helow A, which reminds me to add 110 A. C is two rows below A, so I add 2 to A. I) is three rows below A; I add 3 to A This math is also very easy to do.

It look me aboul an hour to gain an initial mastery of this automatic square. The more 1 performed it. the easier the mathematics became.

Once a performer masters the mathematics, he or she must develop and memorize a presentation to accompany the math. I crcated a presentation that allows me to speak and fill in the numbers ai the same time. This is what amazes people!

## Friendly Persuasion

To do this successfully you need to build a clear path of action by using tools if necessary. These tools would be facts, evidence and stories which you know they can relate to. Plus you always want to have their best interests at heart, in other words, you know what is good for them
