A participant is asked to think of a number from 1 to 52. (free choice, no force)
The performer concentrates and writes something on a business card, a prediction, which he places on the table.
The performer shows some flash cards with sums on, e.g. 12+6= 18x2= 25-9= etc.
The participant is then asked to reveal his number (let's say it was 27)
The performer begins dealing through the flash cards showing that they all have different sums on them.
The 27th card he places on the table, next to the prediction.
This 27th card is turned over to show, for example, 13 x 3 =
The performer shows that the other cards would have yielded different results.
The participant is invited to solve the sum on the card.
The sum on the card totals, in this example 39
The performer point to his face down business card.
The one he wrote on while the participant was thinking of his sum.
BEFORE he’d written anything down.
The card is turned over. Written on it is the number 39.
