Mathematics

Post by LovelyLadyLux » Wed Mar 13, 2019 12:47 am

For all you mathematicians and movie lovers…

For as long as I can remember, I have loved math tricks. This one is very easy and it really works! It will take you only about ten seconds and, amazingly, it will reveal your all-time favorite movie.

I'm pretty good at math, so I did it in my head, then on paper, and finally
on a calculator just to confirm my mathematical calculations. Each time, I
got the same answer, and sure enough, it IS my very favorite movie...EVER!

DO NOT cheat. DO YOUR math, THEN compare the results on the list of movies at the bottom. You will be AMAZED at how true and accurate this test is:



1. Pick a number from 1-9.
2. Multiply that number by 3.
3. Add 3.
4. Multiply by 3 again.
5. Your total will be a two digit number. Add the first and second digits together to find your favorite movie (of all time) in the list of 17 movies below:



Movie List:
1. Gone With the Wind
2. E.T.
3. Blazing Saddles
4. Star Wars
5. Forrest Gump
6. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
7. Jaws
8. Grease
9. The Nancy Pelosi Resignation Speech
10. Casablanca
11. Jurassic Park
12. Shrek
13. Pirates of the Caribbean
14. Titanic
15. Raiders of the Lost Ark
16. Home Alone
17. Mrs. Doubt fire



.. Now, isn't that something?

@LovelyLadyLux It is simply based on the 9 times multiplication table and will always end up with two digits that add up to 9. (eg. 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81)The 3 is added to avoid a single digit result that would be 9 if 1 was the first number selected. They could have overcome this by specifying numbers from 2 to 9. But the answer will always be 9.
