## A TRICK WITH DICE.

(

Problems Concerning Games.)

Here is a neat little trick with three dice. I ask you to throw the dice

without my seeing them. Then I tell you to multiply the points of the

first die by 2 and add 5; then multiply the result by 5 and add the

points of the second die; then multiply the result by 10 and add the

points of the third die. You then give me the total, and I can at once

tell you the points thrown with the three dice. How do I do it? As an

example, if you threw 1, 3, and 6, as in the illustration, the result

you would give me would be 386, from which I could at once say what you

had thrown.
