# Where Does The Extra Man Come From?

This is an amazing video, wherein just inter-changing the heads of the men, will show an extra  man.

And these changes happen in front of your eyes.

Can you tell where the extra man is coming from??

Heh……..mathimatically it will surprise you (bec it isn’t possible). BUT here they don’t directly create a new figure however they try to deceive you by thinking that 5+7 = 12 but 7+5 = 13. Here is the thing: I will try to explain it in 5 steps

1. Pause at 0:32 or 0:33

2. You see that they move 5 persons from left to the right and on the other hand you also see that they move the heads or bodies (not just heads as they claim) of 7 persons to the left. Systematically the numbers of the displayed figures remain the same in the picture. But but but when they move 7 persons from right to left they don’t complete parts of ALL of those on this side.

3. Pause at 0:34 and pay attention. Do you see that they don’t replace the head of the First-down-left person????? But they do use the head of this person to replace one on the right side. You got it!

4. They moved 7 from the right side to the left and one poor guy is already here on left side with part of his head missing (hehe maybe not funny) so 7+1 =8 and they moved 5 from left to replace 5 on the other side so

5. 8+5 = 13 ?.

Tricky, Silly but interesting.
