Update Research Note Form
 Course: Research Note Topic: Research Note Description: A couple of days back, one of my friends told me to have a look at this "Magic" thing that is neat. I played around with it for sometime. It worked every single time. One of my friends doing it with me was in fact so mesmerized by this magic that he was convinced that the application can read his eye's co-ordinates of focus. Crazy I know, but what other explanation could there be. Here's the link, and please try it honestly for some time.

So I started to look for an explanation. Trying to decrypt the steps of the magic.

First, I need to pick a 2 digit number. That means that the number can be between 10 to 99 (including those numbers). Call it 'x'.

Second, I need to add the digits of these numbers. Call that 'y'.

Third, find (x-y) and then focus on the image corresponding to that.

Here, I found there might be some kind of mathematics involved. So, I wrote a small program that goes from 10 to 99, and calculates (x-y) for every value in the middle. That is how I solved this magic.

Now, you can go ahead and make "Magic" yourself and make a fool out of your friends who don't know about this.
