    I tried it and it did'nt guess it right , could it be your cursor was on the number you picked ? and it reconized that ? just an off the wall guess . I did try it twice and both times i picked the same number but it had different symbols each time ... and i did'nt have my cursor on the page of it ...
    like i said , an off the wall guess ....

    The equation sets it up so that your answer will always be a multiple of 9. Each round it changes the symbol for numbers that are a multiple of 9.

    Ok, Nick's math whiz here. I figured it out.

    When you take any 2 digit number (10 through 99), and go through the steps it asks you to, it will always reduce to one of a set of numbers. In this case, the numbers are 0, 9, 15, 18, 27, 36, etc. If you always look at the symbol for 18, that will be the 'guessed' symbol.

    The symbols change for each time you 'try again' so you think it's always guessing your number - in reality, it's just using this pre-set list of numbers, setting them all to the same symbol, and showing you that symbol, which changes each time.


    Dang, someone posted the answer while I was typing! I just kinda explained it a little further.

    Any time you follow the instructions correctly, the resulting answers will create a geometric progression (meaning only certain numbers will be valid answers).

    If you play more than once, you'll notice that the symbols keep changing. The symbol that the program picks always corresponds with all the possible correct answers.
