3. Didn't work for me!?!? :ermm:  Reply With Quote

4. 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   Reply With Quote

5. And it turns out, those most common guesses are always the same :-P  Reply With Quote

Spot on!

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.  Reply With Quote

7. 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? :-D

Oh. 'Cause I didn't read the instructions. My high school teachers would be ashamed of me :-D  Reply With Quote

9. I think it's neat... then again, I think math is neat...  Reply With Quote

10. it didnt work for me, on 99  Reply With Quote

11. Then ya did the math wrong ;-) I just checked to make sure it worked on 99 :-P

99-18 = 81 => multiple of 9  Reply With Quote
