How does this simple trick work?
Ask a friend to pick, silently, a three-digit number, then “double” it to make a six-digit number. For example, if she picks 412, the new number would be 412412. Then dividing by 7, then by 11, then by 13, presto! The original number!
Interestingly, there is no decent trick for two-digit numbers; and for four-digit numbers the trick is not so great. But for nine and fifteen digits (for the right kind of people only!!) there is a relatively simple variation.
