Tell her to get her mobile phone out and switch to calculator.

Tell her to guess a number between one and ten (other than one or ten) and not only will you guess the number but you will also do something else...

This is pretty neat.

DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!

It takes less than a minute .

Work this out as you read ...

Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out because that is half the surprise.

1. First of all, tell her to pick the number.

2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)

3. Add 5

4. Multiply it by 50 -- I'll wait while you get the calculator

5. If she has already had her birthday this year add 1756 ....

If she hasn't, add 1755.

6. Now subtract the four digit year that she was born

You should have a three digit number

The first digit of this was her original number

The next two numbers are

HER AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)
