#### And your card is...

The trick is to ask a friend to think of a card, then after a few questions say what the chosen card was.

Think of a card: | |||

Add on the value of the next highest card: | + 8 = 15 | ||

Multiply the total by 5 | 15 x 5 = 75 | ||

Add | 1 if the suit is clubs 2 if the suit is diamonds 3 if the suit is hearts 4 if the suit is spades |
75 + 4 = 79 |

Now ask your friend for the total.

Subtract 5 and you will know the card: 79 - 5 = 74

The 7 is the number of the card and the 4 gives the suit...

You have correctly found their card - the seven of spades!
