Uchawi at its best???....NOT!

Oh, the beauty and joy of a short post.

Trust me this thing had me puzzled at first..I had tried everything even repeating the same number didn't change a thing. However, you do have to think of a real number resulting from proper maths. If you guys can figure it out, comment chap chap...this is impressive stuff! But the catch is pretty obvious...

I tried 17-8=9 like ten times different symbols they got it right all the time...a PRIZE will await he who figures out what the catch is fastest. That PRIZE could be an email of PART 2 and 3 of the BLOGGER MEET UP

If you wanna be fooled check this out...but small hint, it really isnt magic

wow!
that had me doing some real thinking right thurr!!

tell yu what? i think it has something to do with an internal psychological perception that the image yu get after adding the numbers is what will be seen in the flash player.

...and if that aint true, Nick this whole thing shows yu are paranoid!!!! tehehe

what wud yu choose?

short answer: randomized presentation of symbols is how the principle works.

Underlying theory:
Then mathafu will pre-limit the number of possibilities (aka "cut-off" or which numbers gets called to join the institution)


Then the squiggles (sp) are repeated strategically.

Wow! Muts you are fantasic! Formidable retention of under-grad math powers? Or quick googler? You decide.

Or Flash is masonic and a devil worshipper. Shindwe!!!

this gets me a picture of the meet up no?

uchawi pure and simple;)) but there is a limit to the number of symbols involved I tried without doing the addition and came up,with symbols still; there is no magic.

I agree with lifemoments, position of cursor , and to throw this in the mchuzi, some backward math where x is a random number? How's N**kie doing? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA(rolling on floor holding onto stictches!!!!)

Kiini macho at it's best! I tried all sorts of options & the frigging thing kept getting it right every time:(
What's the secret? Permutation of numbers probably??

elementary watson:

any two digit number, let's say ab (yes, yes, I know it's multiplication there, just work with me) minus the sum of the individual numbers a+b will always equal a multiple of nine.

1-10=9 x 1
20-2=9 x 2
30-3=9 x 3

and on it goes. Don't be fooled by the "random" arrangement of the symbols.

and, yes, I failed calculus. But this was simple algebra.

in short, mutumia was mostly right.

I win the prize, right?

oh, yes,

all the multiple of nine have the same symbol

pat pat

I can do words AND numbers!
