Magical Mathematics reveals the secrets of fun-to-perform card tricksaand the profound mathematical ideas behind themathat will astound even the most accomplished magician. Persi Diaconis and Ron Graham provide easy, step-by-step instructions for each trick, explaining how to set up the effect and offering tips on what to say and do while performing it. Each card trick introduces a new mathematical idea, and varying the tricks in turn takes readers to the very threshold of todayas mathematical knowledge. Diaconis and Graham tell the storiesaand reveal the best tricksaof the eccentric and brilliant inventors of mathematical magic. The book exposes old gambling secrets through the mathematics of shuffling cards, explains the classic street-gambling scam of three-card Monte, traces the history of mathematical magic back to the oldest mathematical trickaand much more.They can answer in 2 A 2 A 2 = 8 ways, so an eight-card deck can be used. The eight possible answers are: RRR RRB RBR RBB BRR BRB BBR BBB. We want to find a sequence of eight R/B colors so that each consecutive set of three occursanbsp;...
