I found out how to trick him! Find your symbol but once u find it look at him in the eye and think of another symbol! That's how he'll never get it right :P

This game is quit simple, No mater witch numer you choose you always get one of these numbers 9 18 27 36 45 54 63 72 81. The symbol of those numbers is the same. And if you wonder why the symbol is diffrent every time It`s becous they change the symbol every time you play. I immediately realized that when I saw the symbols change after one game.

It's not hard to do this. The point is that there are several numbers that what ever number you pick will get some of that number.
For example:
83->8+3=11-> 83-11=72
84->8+4=12-> 84-12=72
Any number you pick your answers will be some of these numbers: 9,18,27,36,45,54,63,72,81 and if you look closely they all have same symbol :)
It's not magic trick, it's math trick, but still it's great :)

I know the trick! If you subtract the sum of any 2-digit number from itself, it always results in any of 9's one or two-digit multiples... and if you check the sheet, all of 9's multiples are having the same symbol! So easy!

Everytime it changes the symbol of multiple of 9. Whenever we plus the two digits numbers and minus with the original numbers the answer which comes is always multiple of 9. He knows what is the multiple of 9 and shows the symbol to you........Simple and easy!!!! Watch carefully and you'll understand it
