The magic of David Copperfield In a TV show, David Copperfield turned simple-minded mathematical properties into something wonderful, for an audience who was (skillfully) led to expect magical things to happen.

Copperfield first asks you to take N steps forward and N steps back. It doesn't matter what N is, does it.

A more mathematical way of explaining this process is through the use of a ternary number system. Martin Gardner, in his book Mathematics, Magic, and Mystery, covers how the use of ternary numbers can be applied to this problem. If we want a card to be in the nth position, then we take the ternary form of nFile Size: KB.

This self-working mathematical card trick is the brainchild of the brilliant, eccentric magician, Bob Hummer, who was a friend of Martin Gardner's. The trick is featured in Gardner's book.
