53 53 40 40 27 27....

1. 53 + 53 = 106, & divide by 2 = 53,

2.53 - 13 = 40,

3.40 + 40 = 80 & divided by 2 = 40,

4. 40 - 13 = 27,

5.27 + 27 = 54 & divided by 2 = 27,

6.27 - 13 = 14.

1. 53 + 53 = 106, & divide by 2 = 53,

2.53 - 13 = 40,

3.40 + 40 = 80 & divided by 2 = 40,

4. 40 - 13 = 27,

5.27 + 27 = 54 & divided by 2 = 27,

6.27 - 13 = 14.

40 - 13 = 27,

27 - 13 = 14.

So, the answer is 14.

53×1,

= 53-13.

40×1,

= 40-13.

27×1.

= 27-13,

= 14.

= 53-13.

40×1,

= 40-13.

27×1.

= 27-13,

= 14.

It's an easy trick.

53-40 = 13.

40-27 = 13.

27-14 = 13.

So, 14 is the correct answer.

53-40 = 13.

40-27 = 13.

27-14 = 13.

So, 14 is the correct answer.
