Did he get your number right? How does he do it?!

30-3 is not 37... It's 27

And 20-2 is not 28, it's 18...

You should go practice math more..

90,86,81,72,68,63,54,45,43,36,27,18,9,5,0

This game's trick is actually quite simple to figure out.

First, he asks for a number, and asks you to follow his steps, however not that after the steps your number will always become a multiple of 9.

Second, on the symbol page all of the multiples of the number 9 are the same but are mixed up so that nobody figures out the trick. Every try, the symbol changes and so does the order.

Finally, since your number is a multiple of 9, he will know the symbol no matter what your

number is

Not entirely sure whether someone has posted this already, but spoiler alert(!):

Let's say a two digit number is represented as XY, where X = 4 and Y = 3

43 is the same as 40 + 3, which would be in algebraic terms 10X + Y

When adding the two digits, it's the same as X + Y. 4 + 3 = 7

Subtracting (X + Y) from (10X + Y) would remove the Y term and leave you with 9X, so that any answer you would get is a multiple of 9 (up to 81). 43 - 7 = 36, and 9 * 4 = 36

The set of symbols change each time to spice things up a little, yet the 9 times tables up to and including 81 remain the same. It's a simple yet crafty trick.

You have 95 numbers, first 8 are for nothing, symbol that you have mostly on your paper is the one that he will pick, you want to know why? than read this.

First look at your paper few times again, screenshot it, you will see that any symbol that you connect in his occasion is 36, and that number minus 9 (3+6=9) will be symbol that is mostly crowded on the paper, so look at every number and connect them and when you minus, that number with his digit's summed you will get most crowded symbol on the paper. Mostly crowded symbol will be at number 9, 18, 27, 36,45, 54,63,72,81 surely.

I'm sorry if you didn't understand me so good, but I think you have.

CSG answer me if I'm right!

It's much more simple then it looks :D.

When the game starts it already has a shape in kind (for example a "pyramid")

Then your asked to think of a number with ONLY 2 Digits.

All the numbers which you can make from any 2 digit number has the same shape (in this case the "pyramid") so 12, 1+2-3, 12-3= 9 <-- this number will have the same shape as 0 and all the numbers which your able to make. 45, 4+5=9, 45-9=36 36 will also have the same shape (in this case a pyramid)

All the commands in this game is much more simple then you think, its just placing an image on all the possible numbers which can be created and then revealing it.

I've tried several times and he guessed it right every time. So i let my mum try once and he guessed wrong symbol...

It's the trick of 9.

When you choose a number between 11 to 99. And do what he tells you to. You get the symbol that's always every nineth.

Table of 9

9 × 1 = 9

9 × 2 = 18

9 × 3 = 27

9 × 4 = 36

9 × 5 = 45

9 × 6 = 54

9 × 7 = 63

9 × 8 = 72

9 × 9 = 81

Example 1. Number is 84

8+4=12 84-12=72

Example 2. Number 45 Get it?

4+5=9 45-9=36

Finally a smart guy.

no matter which number u pick you will always get a multiple of 9 as a result (9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81).

if u look at the table u can see that there is always the same symbol next to all of these numbers. 100% success rate

Guys, just think for a bit..

There is only a limited amount of numbers you can get. The placard with the symbols will change everytime. The limited amount of numbers that you will always get will all have the same symbol, which is the symbol the squirrel shows at the end.

You're welcome :)

Your number will always end up as a number in the 9 times table, all the numbers in the 9 times table are the same symbol.

I've worked out how it works, every possible combination has the same symbol, don't believe me, take a look a 0, 9, 18, 36 and 54, they will all be the same

I figured it out now! Only a few numbers are produced with the first part (adding digits then taking that away) and those numbers all have the same symbols. Look at the ones you've done - they're the same.

And guys one more thing , never move your mouse pointer to that number which you've guessed.

just choose a number like 15 and match with a pic and I guarantee he'll answer wrong . Prove? I did it and proved it myself.

either you did the calcul wrong or you didnt watch the right image. 15 : 1+5 =6 15-6 = 9.

He answer is always a multiple of 9. You can try with any number between 10 to 99 it will always give you a mutiple of 9. 10 : 1+0 = 1 10-1 = 9. 75 : 7+5 = 12 75-12 = 63. 63 is a mutiple of 9. You can look at all the multiple of 9 it will always be the same image.

That was really coool, but I've done this before and guess what, I tricked him and he was wrong.

Wahahahahahahha

it was simply amazing!

Wow! It's amazing game. Squirrel is very smart *-* *-* :D

That Gopher looks weirdly similar to Courage the Cowardly dog .

0.0

yay i tricked him. he got my number wrong

It's a bit strange but fantastic !How does it work????

It's magical.He got my number right!

Ohhhhhhhhhh! It's amazing. He's always right.

Ohhhhhhhhhh! It's amazing. He's always right.

No I was wrong O-O

he said the number which you put your mouse on it :))

nice game :)

let the number = ab and ab = 10*a + b. 10a+b-a+b=9a. look at those patterns, does 9 and 18 and 27 etc. look the same?
