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

There's nothing to see here.

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.

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


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

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

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?

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

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

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.

Every optional answer can be divided by 9.

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

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.

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.

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



ahh didnt notice they switched, thats how they do it
dude, what about an actual solo in death metal instead of that poof from linkin park. Think of Pulse of the Maggots - Bed Of Razors

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
#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)
