Quess the number
Adding more numbers in a series
Ask someone to add all the numbers from 1 to 200 and then surprise them by giving them the result in less than one minute. How?
The sum of the first and last, second and second last numbers and so on are always the same. Meaning, 1+200, 2+199, 3+198 is always 201. In total we have 100 sums like this so 201*100 = 20 100.
Of course, you can also ask for the sum of numbers from 1 to 100 or 101 to 300.
