 08-01-2007 #1 littlebookworm Guest   Posts: n/a Math trick secret? Our geometry teacher told us to get a book with lots of stories or just plain paragraph. He told us to pick a page and select a word from the lines 1-9. First, he told us to multiply the page by 2. then he told us to add 4 to the product. Then, he told us to multiply the result by 5. then add the number of the line. (ex. The word you chose is in the first line, add 1) after that, he told us to add 5 to the result, then multiply the result by 10, finally, add the no. of the word.Understood? Or you were just confused by the group of jumbled letters? Sorry!Whoever out there knows the trick â€¦..thanks I am really confused.
