How to predict person's pocket money

This technique will help you find how much money a person has in his pocket/wallet etc. It can be tried on group of people simultaneously.

Steps to Calculate Pocket Money

1) Ask him to take the amount a person has in his pocket (Just Rupees, ignore the paisa)

2) Next, ask him to add '5' to it

3) Multiply the answer by '5'

4) Double the answer so obtained

5) Finally, ask him to add his favorite one digit number (from 0 - 9) 

After the steps are over ask him to tell you the final answer. And just by listening to the final answer you will come to know the amount he has in his pocket! 

Secret Magical Calculation

1) Ignore the digit in the units place.

2) From the remaining number, subtract '5' and you will come to know the amount he has in his pocket.

Example

Let us suppose a person has Rs.20/- in his pocket. He would work out the steps as given below.

1) Take the amount in your pocket '20'

2) Add '5' = 25

3) Multiply by '5' = 250

4) Double the answer = 250

5) Add your favourite single digit number say '7' = 257

Thus the final answer would be '257'. Now, let us see how we can find the amount he has from the final answer. As mentioned earlier the digit in the units place (in this case it is '7'). Now the remaining number is '25'. From '25' we subtract '5' and get the amount as Rs.20/-. And thus our answer is conformed.   

There are many ways by which we can predict the amount a person has in his pocket but this technique is preferred because it neither involves any complex calculations nor it is too obvious for the audience to guess the secret.
