    I done it 3 times and it never got it right??? but so many of the designs are the same maybe its done by the probability of which number will be picked?

    Have you noticed every couple of times you do it, it mixes up the symbols?

    I've done it over and over and over and everytime it's right! Be sure to realize once you have subtrated your number, you need to look for the symbol of the answer, not the symbol of the original number you are working with.

    Ok, my son just told me what's going on here. The answer is always a multiple of 9, and if you watch closely, the multiples change everytime you get ready to play. For instance 9,18,27, etc. will be the ying-yang sign, then next time you play it's the cross, etc........Takes a preteen to figure this out for dear old Mom...LOL

    very cool. correct on the 9's. if you don't click on the circle but do a few more problems in your head you will see that all equal the same symbol.

    Oh another one. I ran up on this thing a couple of years ago or more and if just fascinated me. Upon showing it to my 12 year old he played it a couple of times and then explained to me how they were doing it. Both my brother and I argued with him until he showed us how it worked. Duh!!!!!!!!!

    Now if it could just be applied to school work...LOL. Actually, he was getting frustrated trying to explain it to me. He wasn't being clear, or so I thought. I sat there going "huh??" He finally said "Mom just keep clicking it and watch the mulitiples of 9, they are always the same!". Duh I felt dumb!
