how this thing works?!?!?!

I can.....no matter what number you pick it will always come out to a number that has that same symbol. Go back and try it and see for yourself.

It seems you can never pick a number that results in a symbol other than that one you keep seeing.

OK, nevermind......it does go to other symbols!!!!

How does this thing do that??????

I checked it out and everytime I changed my number the correct symbol showed. HHhmm how does it work? LOL

your answer will always come to a number divisible by 9.......for example, take the number 74....which means than 7+4+11. 74-11=63 63 is divisible by 9. If you look at the whole chart before you even pick a number, look at all the numbers divisible by 9. (9, 18, 27,36, and so on), they will all have the same symbol.


By the way, sorry if I ruined this for other people.

Yup!

A two digit number, i.e., "95" is actucally 10 times 9 plus 1 times 5: 95 = (10 x 9) + (1 x 5).
So, ANY two digit number "XY" is: "XY" = (10 x X) + (1 x Y)
Now the puzzle ask you to add "X" and "y" then subtract the sum from the original number. We have:
10X + Y , which is your original number added together, subtract X + Y, which is the sum of the two digit. So we have an expression:
10X + Y - X - Y, which equals 9X.
So no matter what two digit number you choose, you ALWAYS have as the answer, after you do the adding and subtracting, a number that is a multiple of 9 (the 9X above).
The puzzle then is just a matter of placing the same symbol next to any number that is a multiple of nine (9, 18,27, etc.) and "revealing" that symbol in the crystal ball.

Clear as mud, right?

but....how.... do they....know the symbol...when you do the math in your head...?

I think its so cool how you all are trying to figure it out.. Its more amusing then the ball itself.. I have no clue how it works but thinks for posting the question makes for a funny thread

As pointed out, your answer will always be a multiple of 9. If you look at the symbol chart before you 'do the math', you will notice that all the multiples of 9, up to 81, have the same symbol, so it can't help but get your answer right. If you click to 'try again', the symbol by all the multiples of 9 changes, but it is still the same for all multiples of 9.

Yup! I've actually seen this before, just didn't recognize it at first.
