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.

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.

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?

He didn't get it right for me, I was thinking of 52 and he said 78! But I still think it's a good game. I enjoyed it anyway.
