Sorry if this has been posted before... spooky/interesting/fun!... read the instructions and give it a go (try it more than once!.

If you think long and hard, you might be able to figure it out

I know how it works. That one is a rip off of the real one though.

#3

That blew my mind, man.

#4

it worked the first time, but not the 2nd or third

how does it work?

how does it work?

#5

worked the first time for me, then failed

#6

Every ninth symbol is the same. Every answer is dividable by nine.

There's nothing to see here.

First one worked, second one didn't.

#8

I feel like I am smarter than this, but I can't help but be amazed by it. Maybe it's because I suck at math.

#9

Do you have a link to it?... i remember there being a better representation on another site.

#10

To those who say it didn't work, you messed up, not it.

#11

It's basic maths. All the possible answers have the same symbol. If it doesn't work, your maths sucks.

#12

looking at it now, the images repeat themselves

the variety of numbers really just try to confuse you, because there is no result that can be higher than 13...

Damn, thought this was gonna be something else. I remember something along these lines a while back, where it would try to guess what TV show you were thinking of based on a limited number of questions. Anybody know anything like that?

#14

I figured out how it works. The symbols for each number change after every try. It's all just mathematical.

#15

But the symbol is different each time. How does it guess which number you came out with?

#17

it didnt work for me

#18

The answer is always divisible by 9. Look at the symbols for 9, 18, 27 etc. Always the same symbol.

#19

Thats just awful

completely old

No matter what number you choose. It will always come down to the same symbol. I'm sure there is a mathematical equation to it but my maths is rusty.

#23

Every optional answer can be divided by 9.

#24

Ahhh yes I get it now. The symbol changes each time but only for numbers in the 9 times table.

#25

But the symbol is different each time. How does it guess which number you came out with?

Because the answer is always a multiple of nine.

My dad showed this to me like 2 years ago, it's pretty simple to figure out, I thought.

#26

the equation you do always ends up being a multiple of 9, all those numbers are given the same symbol, afterwards they change the symbol to make it seem like its different.

ahh didnt notice they switched, thats how they do it

#28

The maths would be:

For any 2 digits natural number:

10h+n -(h+n)="9"

10h-h+n-n="9"

9h+0="9"

9h="9"

That conclusion is correct, since any number multiplied by 9 gives a multiple of 9

Inductive reasoning FTW!!

EDIT:Oh and every multiple of 9 has the same symbol, like eveybody here said, yeah

My math teacher showed us this a while ago. And when I saw this thread, I instantly thought about it.

#30

im still a bit confused here.

How does it know what symbol it is?!? You could choose anything!

I did the same number in a row, and it dident work

EDIT!: I got it! Always a multiple of nice, the symbol changes, same symbol for each multiple of nine

Okay, a new magic trick:

Take any 2 digit number,and multiply it by 7. Now add all the digits from the first 2 digit number you chose. Now multiply it by 2, and add that to the previous number you had (the one you multiplied by 7).

Now divide that number by 9, and to the first number you chose (at first) substract this new one.

Now, divide the new number by the first digit of the first number you chose...

Is the answer 2?

(lol one I invented right now)
