Mnemonics as a Numbers Memory Aid – Part 5

September 28th, 2009 by Steven Pomeroy | Filed under Remember Numbers.




Here we will conclude our memory technique to remember numbers with the codes for the numbers 7, 8, 9, and 0.

First, “7” can be coded as a “g” or a “k”.  To remember the “g” code for 7, simply remember that “g” is the seventh letter of the alphabet.  The “k” code for 7 can be remembered like this.  Visualize uppercase “K” as two sevens back to back (one 7 being the mirror-image of the other) and turned 90 degrees anticlockwise.

Next, “8” is coded as an “f” or a “v”.  The “f” code can be remembering that a cursive lowercase “f” resembles the number 8.  For the “v” code, I like to remember the old vegetable drink commercial line, “”WOW! I could have had a V8!”

The number “9”, as we have seen before, can be coded as a “b” or a “p”.  Remember that lowercase “b” looks like an upside-down 9, and “p” looks like the mirror image of the number 9.

Finally, the number “0” is coded by the letter “z”.  Any guesses as to how to remember this one?  RIGHT!  The word “zero” begins with the letter “z”.

Once again, if you want more in-depth information on this memory technique and other math tricks, then I recommend the book “Secrets of Mental Math”.

    these technique really worked with me. Now I am able to remember more than 30 digit numbers, although I it is difficult to memorise the numbers because numbers are consedered the most difficult numbers to memorise and then recall them correctly. by the way I would like to recommend you with an incredible and exellent book which can train the brain and memory by certain techniques. You can get it from here “www.memoriad.com”. Thank you.
