Hmm thats a really simple thing to do. When you add the sum of the two digits then subtract it from the original number you'll always come up with a multiple of nine. So basically the answer will be 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81. And also 0 but you'll never get that number. Not really a mind reading site now is it?
That mystical ball is not that mystical att all, quite boring in fact. Cause they ask you to pick a random 2 digit number, so you have the numbers betbeen 10 and 99 to those from. Then substract the sum of the digits from the number. 25 would result in 25-(2+5)=18.
BUT as would any other number between 20 and 29. so the trick is to place SAME symbol at 9, 18, 36, 45 and so on, multiples of 9 that is. And if you look closely youll notice that the symbol at those numbers is the same, BUT they randomize which symbol to display at those numbers every time, so ordinary ppl are fooled into beliving that the magic ball is actually magic. :cool:
Damn i love Discrete math! :bounce:
dont tell us the secret :(:( its not fun anymore :(
