The Secret Code!
Imagine that You and your friend, Statistics, are playing this game together. Ask him to secretly choose an important date in his life – maybe his birthday or a favorite holiday etc.
Now he needs to perform the following steps in succession.
|Sl. No.|| Steps to follow ||Example|
|1||Ask him to write the number corresponding to that |
month from the month chart given above.
Let the date is 1st May. The number corresponding
to the month of May is 5. Let it be N1
|May 1st |
N1 = 5
|2||Next, multiply that number by 5.||5 × 5 = 25|
|3||Add 6 to the answer.||25 + 6 = 31|
|4||Multiply that result by 4.||31 × 4 = 124|
|5||Add 9 to the total.||124 + 9 = 133|
|6||Multiply that result by 5.||133 × 5 = 665|
|7||Add the number of the day.|
Here it is 1 (= 01) (1st May). Let it be N2
|665 + 1 |
|8||Add 700 to the total.||666 + 700 |
|9||Finally, subtract the secret code 865 from the result. |
This result will be like N1N2.
|1366 – 865 |
= 5 01
An exception. When you subtract 865 and obtain four digits, the first two digits are the number of the month.
This is a mathematical game that you can play with your friend Statistics several times. The final answer always ends up being the concatenation of two numbers, as discussed above.
