A Little Math

This was emailed me from my sister-in-law

Math Trick

I love math tricks. This one really works and will only take you about ten seconds!!!

Amazingly it really works to reveal your all-time favorite movie.

I'm pretty good at math so I did it in my head, then on paper, and finally on a calculator just to confirm my numerical capabilities.

Each time I got the same answer, and sure enough it IS my very favorite movie EVER!

DO NOT cheat.
DO YOUR math, THEN compare the results to the list of movies at the bottom

1. Pick a number from 1-9.

2. Multiply that number by 3.

3. Add 3.

4. Multiply by 3 again.

5. Your total will be a two digit number. Add thefirst and second digits together to find your favorite movie (of all time) in the list of 17 movies below:

Movie List:
1. Gone With the Wind
2. E.T.
3. Blazing Saddles
4. Star Wars
5. Forrest Gump
6. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
7. Jaws
8. Grease
9. The Obama Farewell Speech
10. Casablanca
11. Jurassic Park
12. Shrek
13. Pirates of the Caribbean
14. Titanic
15. Raiders of the Lost Ark
16. Home Alone
17. Mrs. Doubtfire

Now, isn't that something?

I'm disappointed Patty. It didn't work for me. I checked mine 3 times too as mine came out as No 9 but I have never heard of The Obama Farewell Speech!

My favourite film is Harvey which isn't in the list but I am partial to Star Wars, the original one!
