Hey Guys, I am back with another puzzle Number of Buttons but this time it is for the students of secondary level to open their mind to take out the mathematician hidden out. The basic aim of this blog is to make you feel mathematically strong by strengthening your fundamentals of mathematics. Mathematics is all about calculation with reason and I am here to explore your brain.

Isn’t it interesting to know the number of buttons in your friend’s shirt without counting it?

Indeed it will prove you a superhero in the sight of your friend.
Your friend will think you a mind reader and appreciate you for your marvellous
guessing technique with 100% accuracy.
I
am stopping the game here, you can also predict the colour of your friend’s
the shirt kept in his/ her wardrobe and force him to show that shirt and count
the number of buttons in front of many of your friends sitting around you.
Here
is the colour chart that your friend will choose according to his favourite
colour.
Red
Indigo
Blue
Green
Yellow
Orange
Red
White
Black
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
Now
give a pen and paper to your friend and instruct him to do as instructed.
     1.  Choose the number of his favourite shirt colour from
the table given above.
     2. Multiply this number by 4
     3. Add 5 to it
    4. Multiply it by 3
    5. Tell him to multiply the number of buttons of his
favourite shirt by 5 and add it to the previous result.
    6.  Multiply the result obtained by 8
    7.  Divide the result by 4
    8.  Subtract 30
    9.  Subtract 23 times the number corresponding to the
colour of his favourite shirt from the previous result.
     The  result
obtained will have a two digit number where ten’s digit will represent the
number of buttons in his shirt and one’s digit will show the colour of his
favourite shirt. So, did you find it interesting enough? It is based on simple algebra and I want your kids and you even to open your mind and sharpen it. Don’t forget to send your mail to me at rkthakur1974@gmail.com.
