    It has to do with subtracting the number you start with.

    I wonder why the answer is always a multiple of 9.

    I'd like to see someone explain how they beat the golpher. My guess is that you added or subtracted wrong.

    I'll try to explain what I see.

    So lets say 53 is the base number
    5, 3
    5 + 3 = 8
    53 - 8 = 45
    45 / 5 = 9

    So the your answer divided by the first digit of the base number will always give a multiple of 9.

    :withstupi

    They just change the symbols that represent multiples of nine eveytime so the little **** doesn't always have to guess the same one. This way people won't catch on.
