Think of a number with two digits. For example, 43. Follow the Magic Gopher's instructions and he will amaze you by telling you what number you chose.

Woof4, look, if you take N=10a+b, where b is between 0 and 9, and a between 1and 9, you have :
(10a+b) - (a+b) = 9a. Ok? So, the result can only be a multiple of 9 : 9,18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81, 90. After that, look at the signs in the table. You can notice that all the multiplies of 9 have the same sign. The squirrel has just to show this sign and he's right. You see, it's no magic, but mathematics.

Hi Haider7427. Let me reassure you that our games 100% do not use the camera or microphone. If we ever add a game that does, the game will say so clearly. Thanks for your comment :)

Oh, it is simple algebra: always the symbol from the card is following that numbers: 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81... But this squirrel is clever, realy! :)

Hi hannaramm57,
Thanks for letting us know. Is it loading for you now ? I've just tested it and it's working fine for me.  Are you using Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari or another browser? Perhaps you could try using a different browser and see it that works.
Let us know how you get on ...
Best wishes Tina (LearnEnglish Teen Team)

Hi Sarahappy,
I'm sorry it's not working for you ... I've just tried it again and it's working fine for me. Take a look at my comment above which will give you some ideas to try out. I hope you manage to get it working.

Hi rick. Actually, none of our games at the moment use the camera or microphone. If we ever add a game that does, the game will say so clearly. Thanks for your comment :)

i got it!
from 10 to 19:your number=9 vd: 10-1=9;11-2=9
from 20 t0 29: your number =18
Same that, your number = 9,18,27,36,45,54,63,72,81.these numbers have a same symbol. and every time you play, the symbol changed. That's right?
