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 think you have to read the instructions.

Here is the instruction of this game. I just copied it.

Think of a number with two digits. For example 43.

Now add the two numbers together. For example 4 + 3 = 7.

Next, subtract the new number from your original number. For example 43 - 7 = 36.

Finally, look at the symbol next to your number. Remember it.

Now the Magic Gopher will read your mind and tell you what your symbol is. Watch carefully.

Understand now??????

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?

So every person that says he/she managed to win or is wrong in his/her calculations, or is lying. Do not believe:)

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.
