lets start quickly without taking much of your time.... 1. Keep a simple +ve and non-zero number in mind, example 3, 45, 79 or anything 2. Add 2 to that number, Feel free to use a pen, paper and computer calculator 3. multiply by two 4. add 10 5. add 20 6. devide by two 7. substract 15 8. substract the original number you had in step 1 9. add 6 10. multiply by 5 11. add 59 12. NOW THE RESULT OF all your calculation is 99, is that right?

Never thought of this kind of mindreading trick before. Thanks for sharing

So I tried simplifying the equation..sorry can't help it =P
Number in mind is y, after much simplification, the equation will be:
(y + 17 - 15 - y + 6) x 5 + 59 = result

Since +y and -y cancel out each other, then the result will always be:
(17 - 15 + 6) x 5 + 59 = result
Which will always be 99. Brilliant trick!

I'm gonna try this on my co-worker :)
