Didn't work for me!?!? :ermm:

It worked for me 3 times in a row then i baffled it with 65. Then i realized i can't add, tried it again and it guessed it.
Look at how the symbols are arranged. People are fickle and most choose the same number/s. The symbols are aligned to represent this. This means that 2-3 symbols will represent most of the most common guesses. The rest is down to chance and a 1/2-3 chance of getting it right isn't bad.
If you want to prove its no physic just choose consecutive numbers
And it turns out, those most common guesses are always the same :-P

It's difficult to see though, when you just run a few random trials.
The number/pattern change on each submition, so that all of the seemingly random number-pattern combinations, combines to produce the same figure.
It's a nice piece of 'magic' though, as this is not easily spotted.

No guess. Total MATH.
any 2 digit number is just like so:
e.g. 65 = 60 + 5 = [ 6 * 10 ] + 5 = [ X * 10 ] + Y = 10X + Y
So as per the instructions:
X + Y = Z
10X + Y - Z
10X + Y - [X + Y] = 10X + Y - X - Y = [10X - X] + [Y - Y] = 9X = the 9s times table (0..81)
Those symbols are always the same one.
MATH, not guesswork

Dammit, that's right, that's what it was. I'd forgotten. So ... How exactly did I get it wrong? :-DOriginally Posted by Wired
Oh. 'Cause I didn't read the instructions. My high school teachers would be ashamed of me :-D
I think it's neat... then again, I think math is neat...
it didnt work for me, on 99
Then ya did the math wrong ;-) I just checked to make sure it worked on 99 :-P
99-18 = 81 => multiple of 9
