EDIT: My bad, I followed the instructions incorrectly by mistake.

If it's not getting your number, you might want to check your math.

I've seen this before, it works as long as you use the final number that you come up with (i.e. 62-(6+2)= 54), because it always ends up being a multiple of 9, and if you look, all said multiples have the same symbol.

Now if you use your ORIGINAL number (62) that you started with, it is usually wrong.

Enough people broke it to make giving an explanation warranted.

Kuhlshrank, I believe that you are describing a mathematical oddity called casting out nines. This also works for any number of digits. In this example, all of the symbols representing a multiple of nine are the same.

These types of website games are just stupid. Really, who cares? It got my number right. I started out with 52, and ended up with 45. So, it got it right.

It's not like that. I put lube on it and its the same. Its just stuck. And when I cock it back it goes farther back then usual. Also I push as hard as I can and it wont go back in. I've tried the methods and they wont work. Also pics are up.

No, it changes them every time.

No, try keeping your cursor outside the window, using your theory, that would confuse it, or revert back to the symbol nearest the edge of the window.

I'm not familiar with the method "casting out nines" that moonmaster mentioned, so I can't say it is that, but this game just manipulates the number you chose in to a multiple of 9.

Do it and when its guessing your number, keep your mouse off any of the symbols

No kidding, it shows all the possible answers with the same symbol next to it. Still, it is fairly amusing. It's all just math...

The only thing I don't like about it is the witch's (or whoever it is) cackle at the end when it shows the symbol.

I fooled it by using 32. The correct answer would be 17 but it chose something else.
sorry thought I did 22 Ignore this.

^^This.

All it does it change up the symbols that represent 9s every time. That laugh caught me off guard though.

All of these Math tricks center around finding a way to erase the players original number altogether, to ensure that the answer is always the same thing.

That game always gives you a multiple of nine, and then gives all the multiples of nine the same symbol.

I could take it a step further:

Pick a two digit number
Add the two digits and subtract them from the original number (same as that game so far)
Add the digits of your current number together
Your answer is nine (you really should have seen that coming if you didn't)

There are way too many of these, and they all manipulate your number using assorted 9 tricks or erasing it entirely. I used to come up with these just to fuck with my friends, and they're definitely not anything spectacular when you look at the math.
