Try this:

It's a trick, of course, which I later solved. But very effective!

I solved it to my satisfaction of go two by guessing which symbol I'd get and was right, on go 2. Nice little puzzle.

Nice trick - solved it on go 2 by not actually picking a number.(Never could do what I was told!)

We do these all the time in Mensa.

Don't read further if you don't want to know:


The basic theory is like an accounting transposition. If you had up a column of two or more digit numbers, and the sum is off by a multiple of 9, then you have a transposition error somewhere, e.g.: 310 may be written as 130 in error (difference of 180, divisible by nine).

The initial computation always result in a multiple of nine. Then the magic symbol chart has the same symbol at those multiples.


No, Mathgic!

Sorry Smaug, even after your explanation I STILL don't know how it works. But you have to understand that my eyes glaze over when numbers enter the picture.

Oh well, since it's unfortunately been made public - Just re-read the last sentence. That was the only one needed! The previous gobbledegook wasn't.
