Puzzle Five

Here's another simple arithmetic puzzle. Can   you   figure   out   what   the   missing   number   is?   It's   not   quite   as   hard   as   it looks!

Puzzle Four

How many words can you make using only the letters in: MAGIC TRICKS? There are a lot more than you might think!

Puzzle Three

As   a   magician,   you   sometimes   need   to   do   some   arithmetic   in   your   head. Quickly! How long will it take you to figure out the missing number?

Puzzle Two

The   Party   Magician   is   learning   a   new   trick.   It   requires   five   cards.   For   this puzzle   the   cards   are   the   ace,   two   three,   four   and   five   of   any   suit   and   are face   down   in   this   order   from   top   to   bottom;   that   is,   the   ace   is   face   down   on top of the packet and the five is on the bottom. The   cards   are   dealt   in   this   way:   Starting   with   the   top   card,   place   it   face down   on   the   table.   Take   the   second   card   (the   one   that   is   now   on   top   of   the packet)   and   place   it,   still   face   down,   on   the   bottom   of   the   packet.   The   third card   is   dealt,   face   down,   on   top   of   the   first   card   on   the   table.   Continue   with the fourth card and so on until all of the cards are face down on the table. There   is   a   proper   name   for   this   kind   of   dealing   used   by   magicians.   What would you call it? If   your   were   to   now   turn   over   the   entire   packet   on   the   table,   what   order would they be in?

Puzzle One

Help The Party Magician get ready for his show. Lost   in   his   magic   box   are   a   whole   lot   of   playing   cards.   In   fact,   there   are   24 blue   backed   cards   and   24   red   backed   cards.   He   need   exactly   two   blue   backed cards for his next trick. What   is   the   smallest   number   of   cards   he   needs   to   pull   out   of   his   box   (without looking) to be absolutely sure that he has exactly two blue ones?
