The Magician senses a strange feeling of familiarity with an audience member and asks for their name. The audience member’s name is written and placed onto the stage for everyone to see. A calculator is taken out and passed around the audience. The Magician asks the first member with the calculator to input any four digit number that has meaning to them and then the calculator is passed on. Numbers and equations are inputed into the calculator per each passing member. The final digit is totaled. The magician pulls out a sealed envelope with a prediction written before the show. The sealed envelope is passed onto a audience member to verify the envelope is sealed and is asked to read the prediction out loud. The audience member says a name. The same name as the audience member previously written on the board. The last member holding the calculator is introduced onto the stage and is asked to read the number. The magician asks the audience to turn the board with the audience member’s name upside down. It is revealed to be a peerfect match of the number just given.
