Here is the calendar for the month of February 2007.
Let us mark a square on the calendar and see some magic.
Which is the number in the centre of the square?
Ans. The number in the centre of the square is 13.
Join three numbers by drawing a line. The line must pass through the number at the centre.
How many such lines can you draw?
Ans. We can draw 4 such lines.
Add the three numbers on each of these lines.
What do you notice?
5 + 13 + 21 =
6 + 13 + 20 =
19 + 13 + 7 =
12 + 13 + 14 =
5 + 13 + 21 = 39
6 + 13 + 20 = 39
19 + 13 + 7 = 39
12 + 13 + 14 = 39
The sum of the numbers in each of the lines is the same which is 39.
Now, look at the calendar of 2020. Also, look for the present month and draw any similar square in your notebook. Does the magic work for these?
Ans. Look at the month of October 2020.
The number 14 is in the centre of square.
6 + 14 + 22 = 42
13 + 14 + 15 = 42
20 + 14 + 8 = 42
21 + 14 + 7 = 42
The sum of the numbers in each of the lines is 42. Yes, this magic also work here.
Is this magic possible on a 10 × 10 number chart? Go to the chapter ‘Fun with Numbers’ and check.
Yes, this magic is possible on a 10 × 10 number chart.
See if this magic works for other lines which have five numbers. What about five numbers on a slanting line? Try this trick with your family and friends.
Can you find other magic patterns in the calendar?
Sol. Students have to find it themselves.
