Fun with Numbers

Using the numbers from 1 to 24 arrange them in the following manner with six columns. Now add the sum of the numbers in each of these six columns. You will find the total comes to 50 in all the columns. Wasn’t it amazing???

  1 2 3 4 5 6  
12 11 10 9 8 7  
13 14 15 16 17 18  
24 23 22 21 20 19  
Total:- 50 50 50 50 50 50  

Using the numbers from 1 to 36 arrange them in the following manner with six columns. Now add the sum of the numbers in each of these six columns. You will find the total comes to 111 in all the columns. Wasn’t it amazing???

  1 2 3 4 5 6  
12 11 10 9 8 7  
13 14 15 16 17 18  
24 23 22 21 20 19  
25 26 27 28 29 30  
36 35 34 33 32 31
