Question 1:
Look at the patterns of numbers in hexagons.
Each side has 2 circles and 1 box.
Look at the number 65 in the box.
Which are the circles next to it?
Can you see how the rule works?
Answer:
Circles having numbers 5 and 13 are next to the number 65.
In this rule, both the numbers in the circles are multiplied to get the number in the box.
Question 2:
Use the same rule to fill the hexagons below.
(a) (b) Now you also make your own magic hexagons.
Answer:
(a) (b)

Question 1:
Are they equal?
Answer:
Yes, both of them are equal because we are adding same numbers on both the sides, only their order will change.
24 + 19 + 37 = 80
37 + 24 + 19 = 80
215 + 120 + 600 = 935
600 + 215 + 120 = 935
Order does not matter in addition.
Question 2:
Fill in the blank spaces in the same way.

Question 3:
Now, look at this â€• Check if it is true or not.
Answer:
48
×13 = 624
13
×48 = 624
Their multiplication is equal. So, it is true.

Question 1:
Try and change these numbers into special numbers —
(a) 28
(b) 132
(c) 273
Answer:
(a)
Take number 28, turn it in the reverse order to get 82.
Add them together: 28 + 82 = 110
But this is not a special number because when we reverse its order, we get 011.
Now, we add: 110 + 011 = 121
When we reverse its order, we get 121.
Thus, it is a special number.
(b)
Take the number 132, turn it in the reverse order to get 231.
Add them together: 132 + 231 = 363
When we reverse its order, we get 363.
Thus, we get the special number as required.
(c)
Take the number 273, turn it in the reverse order to get 372
Add them together: 273 + 372 = 645
But this is not a special number because when we reverse its order, we get 546.
Now, if we subtract them, we get
645 − 546 = 99
When we reverse its order, we get 99, which is a special number.
Question 2:
NO LEMONS NO MELON
STEP NOT ON PETS
Did you notice that it reads the same from both sides — right to left and left to right?

Question 1:
Look at the calendar below.
Let us mark a 3 × 3 box (9 dates) on the calendar and see some magic.
Take the smallest number  3 
Add 8 to it  +8 
=  11 
Multiply it by 9  ×9 
Total  99 
Now you choose any 3 × 3 box from a calendar and find the total in the same way.
Answer:
Take the smallest number = 4
Adding 8 to it, we get 12.
Multiplying it by 9, we get
12
×9 = 108
So, the sum of all the numbers in the selected box is 108.

Question 1:
Take any number. Now multiply it by 2, 3, 4 ………….. at every step. also add 3 to it at each step. Look at the difference in the answer. Is it the same at every step?
Answer:
Difference between 39 − 27 = 12
Difference between 51 − 39 = 12
Difference between 63 − 51 = 12
Difference between 75 − 63 = 12
Difference between 87 − 75 = 12
Difference between 99 − 87 = 12
Thus, the difference is same at all the steps.
Question 2:
Look at the numbers below. Look for the pattern. Can you take it forward?
Answer:

Question 1:
• Did you notice some pattern in the answers?
Answer:
In each succeeding pattern, the final sum is increased by 100.
Question 2:
Take the first two odd numbers. Now add them, see what you get. Now, at every step, add the next odd number.
How far can you go on?
Answer:
As there are uncountable or infinite numbers, this pattern will never come to an end.

Question 1:
Ask your friend — Write down your age. Add 5 to it. Multiply the sum by 2. Subtract 10 from it. Next divide it by 2. What do you get?
Is your friend surprised?
Answer:
Let the age of my friend be 9 years.
Adding 5 to it, we get
9 + 5 = 14
Multiplying this sum by 2, we get
14
×2 = 28
Subtracting 10, we get
28 − 10 = 18
Dividing it by 2, we get
182 = 9After doing all the operations, we again get the age of our friend’s age as the final answer.

Question 3:
Look at this pattern of numbers and take it forward.
1  =  1 ×  1 
121  =  11 ×  11 
12321  =  111 ×  111 
1234321  =  ? 
Answer:
1  =  1 ×  1 
121  =  11 ×  11 
12321  =  111 ×  111 
1234321  =  1111 ×  1111 
123454321  =  11111 ×  11111 
12345654321  =  111111 ×  111111
