Umm...what?
look at the symbol beside one of those #s and press the button...
ie whatever the symbol for 9 is will appear

thank you kobyashi

reminds me of the number game where you start out with a 3 digit number, do fomr calculations and then you always get 4. you align your answer with the letter in the alphabet, meaning you get d. you're supposed to pick a country starting with that letter. 98% pick denmark. and then you pick an animal that starts with the last letter of your country. k. kangaroo. then a fruit starting with the last letter. and then the person says "you picked orange, didn't you"? and i said no, i picked apple because iguana ends in a. and djibouti (which i think i spelled wrong in the middle, but i know it starts with a d and a j and ends in an i) ends in i.

but if it picks one of those at random, that's.. nine options, right?
But like, it's right far too much to be that random... I sat here and did it about 15 times and it was only wrong once, and that time I did the same number twice.
yeah, where the hell is melon?

All the nine options are the same any given time you do it. And then they all change when the whole thing resets.

LOL...this works because this formula ensures that you always end up with a multiple of 9--and all the multiples of 9 have the same symbol. If you notice, they change the symbols next to the numbers, so that's why you see different symbols.

Let's try a few here:

99: 9+9=18; 99-18=81 --> a multiple of 9 (9x9=81)
80: 8+0=8; 80-8=72 --> a multiple of 9 (9x8=72)
46: 4+6=10; 46-10=36 --> a multiple of 9 (9x4=36)
26: 2+6=8; 26-8=18 --> a multiple of 9 (9x2=18)

It is a pretty clever little program.
