 Perform and explain (Posted on 2017-12-12)
My magician gives you 3 regular dice and asks you to do the following, while he is out of the room:
"Roll them, and write in sequence the three results, followed by a 3-digit number representing the hidden sides of the rolled dice.

Once you got the 6â€“digit number, divide it by 111.

THEN CALL ME."

Then he exits and you roll 1,2,4 and write down 124653, divide by 111 and get 1123. The magician upon entering the room gets the result and quips within a second 1,2,4.

How did he do it?

When the magician walked in, he was pleased to see 1123, because 1+1+2 < 10, 1+2+3<10. So there is nothing to worry about. The three numbers on the dice must be 1, 1+1, 1+1+2, i.e. 1,2,4, which are the three leading digits of 1123*111
