* THE PRESTIGE* one of the finest movie directed by Christopher Nolan, if you have seen it you’ll be able to correlate Mathematics with Magic

*In Mathematics, every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called* *“The Pledge”**. The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man.*

*A = B = 1*

*He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course.. it probably isn’t.*

*A = B*

*(Multiply by **B** on both sides)*

*A*B = B*^{2}

*(Deduct ***A**^{2}* from both sides)*

*A*B – A*^{2}* = B*^{2}* – A*^{2}

*The second act is called **“The Turn”**. The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary.*

*A*(B−A) = (B+A)*(B−A)*

*(Divide by **(B−A)** on both sides)*

*A = B+A*

*1 = 1+1*

*1 = 2*

*Now you’re looking for the secret… but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking. You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled.*

*That’s why every Mathematical trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call **“The Prestige”.*

**I know it’s mathematically wrong. That’s why it’s a “trick”.**

In every magic trick the real question is not **HOW **its **WHEN **

**What’s wrong in the above correlation ? If you can answer it, your concepts are clear, if you can’t its time to study. **
