Now let me explain you the reason. The number is 2 dight, so it should be (10a+b). Follow his instructions, it will end up as 9a. now you wold mention the mutiply of 9's sign is all the same.

Simple! I dont know how but the game knows at what symbol you are looking at,and it can guess it.Try to do a random number,remember the symbol and try it again with the same number,look at another symbol and it wont guess the correct symbol!

Sorry danieldane but i tried that and he can guess your number simply because every answer you have is a multiple of 9,if you look at the symbol page all multiples of 9 (other than 90) HAVE THE same symbol!!

Look, if you take a number N=10xa+b, where b is between 0 and 9 and a between 1 and 9. Ok?
So, you have (10a+b) - (a+b)=9a, right ? After that, look at the multiples of 9, they have all the same sign. When you have your result (ex: 12>1+2=3>12-3=9), which is a multiple of 9. The squirrel must just say these sign and he's right ! Understood, now ?

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 :)
