    Somebody tell me how this works...It's blowing my mind!

    Easy

    Add the two digits: 9 + 9 = 18.Subtract 99 - 18 = 81.Focus on the shape corresponding to 81.Then click on the ball.The image corresponding to the resulting number appears.

    i think he means how is it always right... its easy, they put the same sign for all the right answers...
    take 99: 9+9=18 99-18=81
    then 23: 2+3=5 23-5=18
    take what ever two number, and you'll notice its always the same sign at the number...

    L'explication

    Fort simple. Dans toute la grille, il n'y a qu'un nombre restreint de possibilités de réponse. Par exemple, si on choisit le nombre 12, l'équation devient 12 - (1+2) = 9. Si on choisit 13, l'équation est 13 - (1+4) = 9. Les résultantes de l'équation ne peuvent donc être que 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72 et 81.

    Remarquons deux choses. Tous ces nombres ont le même symbole. Et ce symbole change à chaque fois qu'on joue au jeu, de façon à parfaire l'illusion.

    Votre ordinateur n'est pas ensorcelé…

    Simple. Whatever you select, the result of the equation is always a multiple of 9. And all these have the same symbol, which gets changed each time you reload the game, to finalize the illusion.

    Correct

    Danny is correct as to why it works.The symbols associated with #'s 82 - 99 mask the pattern(the symbol for #'s 9,18,27,36,45,54,63,72,& 81 is always the same) - it is impossible for the subtraction to yield a total of 82 or higher hence the symbol associated with 90 and 99 will vary from the one
    associated with the aforementionned numbers.This has the effect of distracting the eye from the solution.

    The answer is always a multiple of 9 no matter what number you pick.
    Assume the following 2-digit number: XY
    It is equal to (X*10)+Y so if you subtract the sum of the two digits (X+Y)
    You get: (X*10) +Y – (X+Y)
    Which is equal to (X*10) – X or 9*X
    So the answer is always a multiple of 9 times the first digit and in the table all the multiples of 9 (9, 19, .27, 36, etc) have the same symbol.
