Think of a number with two digits. For example 43. Follow the Magic Gopher's instructions and he will amaze you by telling you what number you chose.

i didn't read the explaination of others , because I would understand this joke. The dog can't know the numbers. iT's just a mental thing... ..............I don't know.. i give up !

hey, don't give up. I'll explain you how he did it:
While you follow his instruction, you choose the number 10a + b. Then you add the two numbers together, that's a + b. After that, subtract the new number from your original number, that's 10a+b - a+b = 9a. Now notice all multiple of 9: 90; 81; 72; ... ; 9; 0. They all have the same symbol. That's why he always guesses right

that's incredible ! I can't understan how it's possible?

you did wrong not him

Can i know how he does it ??

Hello BaSabeena,

What an amazing game! How he finds out what we think!

I think the last result relate to number 9, 18 (9x2), 27 (9x3), 36... and they have the same symbol.
The symbols is changed when we play again. That is my opinion :)

that is interesting
