I know! I have done it 6 times and it has been right every time!
oh my fooking good how the feck??????
That is so cool
omg its been right every time, i even tried looking at the wrong number and it wasnt fooled!!!
oi....dat is fooking weird!!!
i dont like it
i thought i'd sussed it,but then realised i hadn't!
I love these mathematical conundrums...
Anyone want to know how it works? I've sussed it out!
me please- I thought it would be Squiglet first up with the science bit......
freaky.. so how does it work then brains?
Go on how does it work?
Ok here goes hope this makes sence:
Every answer you come up with is a multiple of 9
45-9 = 36
7 + 3 = 10
73 - 10 = 63
If you look at all the numers that are a multiples of 9 (9, 18, 27,36,45,54,63,72,81) they all have the same symbol
The only reason the symbol chart changes each time you do it so you never get the same symbol twice.
And there is your answer
woo look at you clever clogs
I was going to say but then I don't want to be called a smart arse...
The symbols change every time... do it with one number... then use a different one, but remember your previous number... when you look at the symbols you will see they are the same.
It the calculation (that Tots Hope has kindly shown you) that does it as there are only a finite number of combinations it can be... and it's these numbers that have a particular (and repeated) symbol attached to them...
Its why I love these mathematical conundrums cos they can have people going for ages, because they keep changing their number...
ive done it 3 times.. 2 out of the 3 have been wrong lol..
It freaked me out - now i just feel silly then thisis the girl that wrote her name on her gcse mathas exam and sat there and read a book through the exam!
Thanks for that, had me worried for a minuite . God I am so gullable
