    I dont know if this is relevant, but the symbols are all the same, for example, a square is the symbol for 91, 65, 70, 84 and 20.

    I get it now.

    Every multiple of nine has the same symbol. Every answer you have in your head is a multiple of nine (unless you are an idiot). Every time you try again the symbols change on the multiple of nine.

    So for the person that the thing didnt guess for you correctly. You are an idiot.
     
  11. The equation they give you, although it sounds like it could turn up ANY number, actually turns up a very limited group of specific numbers, all of which have the same symbol assigned to them.

    For example, if you chose 49, your equation would be 4+9= 13; 49-13= 36

    If you chose 48, your equation would be 4+8= 12; 48-12= 36

    If you chose 47, your equation would be 4+7= 11; 47-11= 36

    And so on, you can see how all the possibilities would amount to less than 10 numbers between 1-100. Put the same symbol on those numbers, and ta daa. Magic. Beer,

    *Edit: I posted this before I saw the one above me, which completes the proof. all the possible answers are multiples of nine.

    i think things like this are kind of cool... and i am not very good at logic, so mamerro, correct me if i'm wrong...

    you're saying that certain multiples of 9, i.e. 9, 72, 36, 81, etc. are assigned a specific character. and you are bound to do the addition/subtraction and come up with a multiple of 9. ok. i agree, that could work. but, the odds aren't very good; there are quite a few multiples of 9 you can get... even if there were only two, it should logically still mess up half the time. but it didn't, it still isn't, and this is about the 35th time in a row it's been correct as to what i was thinking. do you see what i'm saying? you're not givnig the program any information and i doubt someone delved that deep into psychology to figure out what numbers people will choose one after the other to "rig" it in any way... i dont know, do you understand my confusion?
