Then you obviously have a problem with basic maths.

Ok, warning, if you don't want to know how it works, or want to work it out for yourself, stop

reading now. . . . . . . . . . . . . Firstly, the maths involved is quite simple. I'm not sure whose

law it is, but it all works around multiples of nine. For some reason, subtracting the sum of the

two numbers from the original number will always give you a multiple of nine. Have a go, it's true.

Next, look at all the multiples of nine in the table to the right of the ball (90 and 99 can not be

achieved with doubles). They all share the same symbol. Hence, whichever multiple of nine you end up

with, the symbol will be the same, and the correct symbol displayed in the ball.

"But hang on, each time I do it, I get a different symbol!"

This is the sneaky bit which really makes it work. Once you've clicked on the ball, the table of

symbols is wiped, and when you click 'Try Again' a new one replaces it. The new table has a new

symbol for all the multiples of nine.

its in the equations. a two number value (IE ##) can be represented as 10a+b, whereas a 3 number

value can be represented as 100a+10b+c and so on.

Anyway, so you take the number, 10a+b, and subtract the sum of the two values: (10a)+ b - (a + b);

or 10a-a+b-b . In other words, you end up with 9a.

Hence, all possible values are multiples of 9. Look for yourself: 9, 18, 27, and 36 are all the same

symbol (which changes randomly, a nice touch), so you'll always get the same answer.

I didn't think it worked for me either until I realized what happened.

I didn't know that the symbols/numbers would reset after clicking the crystal ball... so after I

clicked the ball I clicked "Try Again" to go back and recheck what the symbol had been... and of

course it had reset so it then appeared different and not to match.

I think I like the card trick ones better. This one was pretty simple and easy to see through.

I don't know how it works. I'm convinced it's magic. If Andy Naughton proclaimed himself as God, I'd

follow him. /s is it premature for the 'God is Andy Naughton' T-shirts?

That aint freaky, it don't even work.

Now here's freaky: walk downstairs (last Sunday) to my carport and notice a huge, really dark red

puddle in this chick's parking spot. I figure, no big deal she probably blew her tranny. But then I

notice 3 dark objects laying on the floor not far from the puddle. I walk over to them and it's the

head (black) of a frig'n goat...eyeballs, fur and horns still on it. Also, two very large headless

birds (black and gray feathers) with big ass yellow feet.

Now that's voodoo freaky! BTW...the chick is a prostitute......I gotta move outta this place!

I dunno. It could be some sort of voodoo type thing, or you may have simply stumbled across the Fear

Factor breakfast buffet.

You are sooooo screwed, dewed!

Shaun aRe - That's baaaad juju!

click the try again button. Now notice how the symbol is always the same for the numbers 81, 72, 63,

54, 45, 36, 27, 18, and 9. No matter what 2 digit number you pick you will always get one of those

numbers. So you see a different symbol every time but the symbol changes every time you try again.

So sorry he isn't a god and it isn't magic, but at the same time it is a clever trick. I'm a

disbeliever I have to figure things out )

Or more mathematically:

A two digit number XY can be expressed as 10X+Y.

The equation they ask you to solve is 10X+Y-(X+Y) which reduces to simply

9X.

So any valid answer is always a multiple of 9.

Actually it is magic in that it relies on diversion or misdirection to distract you from the

"sleight-of-hand" that's going on.
