    It's fixed. Someone told me how but I forget. But has anyone else noticed that with every number you do it with it comes out with a multiple of 9?

    I know how now. Every multiple of 9 has the same symbol. And like I said in my other post, every number you do it with it comes out with a multiple of 9.

    You may have come across this so called "Psychic Mind Reader" or "Mystical Ball" stuff while surfing the net. And I'm damn sure most of you netizens were curious or in awe the first time you tried it. So was I.

    If you aren't sure what am I talking about (writing about rather), check out the links below:

    http://trunks.secondfoundation.org/files/psychic.swf

    http://www.mysticalball.com/

    I first saw this smart piece of work some years ago, but never bothered to figure out the math algorithm behind this puzzle.

    One of my friends mailed it to me yesterday and that got me thinking.
    As I had first thought, the solution was a simple one. In fact, Too simple.

    Its the "Magic of Math" and not symbols and stuff.

    So how does it work?

    Note: Before proceeding, atleast make an attempt to solve it yourself.

    Consider the numbers in the list. Now apply the Math you are asked to perform in the puzzle for all numbers from 10 to 19..

    10 - (1 + 0) = 9

    11 - (1 + 1) = 9

    19 - (1 + 9) = 9

    This will surely enlighten you. Amazingly, the answer is always nine.

    Why is the answer always the same? That would be a dumb question.

    Anyway, here's the answer.

    Let's take from the samples shown above.
    The original numbers always increment by one (10,11,12....19), but so does the values we are using to subtract ( 1+0,1+1,1+2...1+9).

    Obviously, it will yield the same number.

    Now consider all numbers between 20 and 29..
    20 - (2 + 0) = 18

    21 - (2 + 1) = 18
    Its 18 here.

    And how is 18 related to 9 ? Its a multiple of 9 offcourse.

    Similarly, for the set 30-39, it will be 27. 27 is another multiple of 9.

    40-49 will return 36.

    Now take a close look at the symbols for the number 9 and its multiples.

    Well! You must have guessed it by now. All the symbols are the same and this is the answer.

    It is truly the magic of the number 9.

    nice little math trick for first timers to get fooled on

    91... 9+1=10.... 91-10=81. multiple of 9
    92...9+2=11.... 92-11=81 again

    47.... 4+7=11.... 47-11=46.. multiple of 9.
