Did he get your number right? How does he do it?!

Thanks Jonathan, Thanks LearnEnglish Teens Team =)). You're great ;)

now he find it!!!!!!!!

I didn't find

I didn't work I tried 20 and 30 both times failed, how does he guess all the others numbers but not mine?

For me it doesn't work. I choose vase symbol, and he showed me circle.

Gopher is really magic and It's working :) I'm shocked.

dont pointing at your owned symbol number

25=2 and 5 is 7

25 minus 7 is 18

58=5 and 8 is 13

58 minus 13 is 45

45 and 18 has same symbol

choose a number that its symbol not like 0 he will not guess it try it yourself

it workwd

didnt work for me at any time

Goooood

Figured it out in 2 seconds. It always ends up as a multiple of nine and all of the symbols for multiples of nine are the same. Problem solved!

oh soz man u r right

no they are not the symbols are different but a good guess.

Nice game!

the number you get is able to be divided by 9 NO MATTER WHAT. If you hadn't noticed all multiples of nine in the symbol chart are the exact same symbol, they just confuse you by changing the symbol each time. TRY IT

this is solution check

10 = 1 = 9

11 = 2 = 9

12 = 3 = 9

13 = 4 =9

14= 5= 9

15=6 =9

16= 7= 9

etc

than you have

20=2=18

21=3=18

22=4=18

etc

30=3=27

31=4=27

etc

it's is always the multiple of 9 so

watch at the symbols of

9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81 ,90 etc they are the same

like and comment

He can't guess the number if you choose 30 or 20, because 30 3+0=3 30-3=37 and 20 2+0=2 20-2=28 and it's not a multiple of 9

dude 20= 0+2 = 2

20- 2 = 18

dude you need to practice your math because thats way off

30-3 is not 37... It's 27

And 20-2 is not 28, it's 18...

You should go practice math more..

90,86,81,72,68,63,54,45,43,36,27,18,9,5,0

This game's trick is actually quite simple to figure out.

First, he asks for a number, and asks you to follow his steps, however not that after the steps your number will always become a multiple of 9.

Second, on the symbol page all of the multiples of the number 9 are the same but are mixed up so that nobody figures out the trick. Every try, the symbol changes and so does the order.

Finally, since your number is a multiple of 9, he will know the symbol no matter what your

number is

Not entirely sure whether someone has posted this already, but spoiler alert(!):

Let's say a two digit number is represented as XY, where X = 4 and Y = 3

43 is the same as 40 + 3, which would be in algebraic terms 10X + Y

When adding the two digits, it's the same as X + Y. 4 + 3 = 7

Subtracting (X + Y) from (10X + Y) would remove the Y term and leave you with 9X, so that any answer you would get is a multiple of 9 (up to 81). 43 - 7 = 36, and 9 * 4 = 36

The set of symbols change each time to spice things up a little, yet the 9 times tables up to and including 81 remain the same. It's a simple yet crafty trick.

You have 95 numbers, first 8 are for nothing, symbol that you have mostly on your paper is the one that he will pick, you want to know why? than read this.

First look at your paper few times again, screenshot it, you will see that any symbol that you connect in his occasion is 36, and that number minus 9 (3+6=9) will be symbol that is mostly crowded on the paper, so look at every number and connect them and when you minus, that number with his digit's summed you will get most crowded symbol on the paper. Mostly crowded symbol will be at number 9, 18, 27, 36,45, 54,63,72,81 surely.

I'm sorry if you didn't understand me so good, but I think you have.

CSG answer me if I'm right!

It's much more simple then it looks :D.

When the game starts it already has a shape in kind (for example a "pyramid")

Then your asked to think of a number with ONLY 2 Digits.

All the numbers which you can make from any 2 digit number has the same shape (in this case the "pyramid") so 12, 1+2-3, 12-3= 9 <-- this number will have the same shape as 0 and all the numbers which your able to make. 45, 4+5=9, 45-9=36 36 will also have the same shape (in this case a pyramid)

All the commands in this game is much more simple then you think, its just placing an image on all the possible numbers which can be created and then revealing it.

I've tried several times and he guessed it right every time. So i let my mum try once and he guessed wrong symbol...

It's the trick of 9.

When you choose a number between 11 to 99. And do what he tells you to. You get the symbol that's always every nineth.

Table of 9

9 × 1 = 9

9 × 2 = 18

9 × 3 = 27

9 × 4 = 36

9 × 5 = 45

9 × 6 = 54

9 × 7 = 63

9 × 8 = 72

9 × 9 = 81

Example 1. Number is 84

8+4=12 84-12=72

Example 2. Number 45 Get it?

4+5=9 45-9=36
