1. Click on the link - give it a try:

I&#39;ve freaked out quite a few people with this one. Some have come up with some pretty funky explanations as to how it works. Some still don&#39;t understand.

2. Tried it three times and it was wrong three times... the fourth time it was correct though.

EDIT: damn this hangover... it was just me... :">

3. Its wrong....

4. It&#39;s an easy puzzle. I know how it works.

5. It&#39;s an easy puzzle. I know how it works
Don&#39;t explain just yet&#33;

6. Here is the answer, don&#39;t highlight the text if you don&#39;t want to know it.

If it didn&#39;t work you added, or subtracted wrong. I figuared out how it works

When ever you add the 2 digits together and subtract that sum, you end up with a multiple of 9. So, if you look at there graph of symbols, all multiples of 9 have the same symbol. Also, the symbols change each time, that is why the answer is different each time.

EX.

Counting by 9
9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63,72,81...etc

11: 1 + 1 = 2, 11 - 2 = 9
32: 3 + 2 = 5, 32 - 5 = 27
59: 5 + 9 = 14, 59 - 14 = 45

I hope I didn&#39;t ruin this for anyone

this cannot be wrong. it always deliver the right symbol &#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;

if you want an explanation PM me.

theory of numbers was one of my lessons at university

EDIT: sorry about my poor english

8. Dwightfry did a bang up job in explaining how it works - but thats cheating&#33;

9. Yeah, this thing is always right.
It ain&#39;t that spectacular because it restricts your choice to 2 digit numbers only.

Now, if there is one of these that doesn&#39;t impose any restrictions on number choice, then I&#39;ll be stunned.

it works with three digit numbers too. but then you had to make a list from 0 to 972 (min)
and of course it works with all natural numbers - only the symbol list becomes bigger

princip is still the same.
