My "halve"/"half" correction was intended for the original poster. I made that comment as a reply to my own comment.

Cool? Cool.

The simplest equation here is 3x2=6, then 6*2=3

Quite simple.

So I tell my 11 year old ... "And you number is 3" She says, "How do you know". I say, Because it's a trick". She goes, "Well, it's not a very cool trick. Not as good as making me disappear or something."

The answer is always half of what you are told to add....the rest cancels out...if he told you to add a million the answer would end up 500000

I think 6. 6x2=12. 12+6=18. 18/2=9. 9-6=3.

Impossible. Let me try 10. 10x2=20. 20+6=26. 26/2=13. 13-10=3. Whoa.

Okay, now with 7. 7x2=14. 14+6=20. 20/2=10. 10-7=3. Okay, this awesome.

Almost as interesting as the fact that adding odd numbers consecutively equals a square number.

7x2 = 14. 14 + 6 = 20. 20/2 = 10. Remove 7, your starting number. 10-7 = 3.

*halve it*.
For someone obsessed with every little grammar mistake in someone else's meme, you'd think they'd take more care to put it in their own memes.
