I am going to tell you the trick. The addition result of 2 digit number can always divide by nine. The numbers which are divided by 9 in the picture have the same symbol. How funny trick!!! Am I correct??? Do you love it? If you love it please vote for me and write a reply to me.
Yours ever,

I know how it is work. Choose a random number. For example 14. 14-(1+4)=9=9*1. Choose another number. 76-(7+6)=63=9*7. Every number which we can show as 9*n has the same icon. The icon changes with every new game. And it is shown as a result every time. No magic, only Maths.

Hi Daisy2445,

Thanks for your message and sorry you can't see the game. It doesn't work on mobile devices unfortunately, but it's working for me on a computer. What device are you using?

Hello. Let me explain how does this thing work. Every result you can get after the actions he suggests you to do can be divided by 9. And every single symbol in the table that matches a number that can be divided by 9 is the same. The symbols change every go. Thank you.

and all the multiples of 9 have the same symbol
which is the revealed at the end

Yes, he got it right. He just knows all the possible results and puts for them the same symbol. Then, he shows you that symbol. Actually, he can never be wrong the only possible thing is that you calculated wrong. I really like this idea and good job to the person who created this game :)
