Easy... there's a limited possibility of results you can have, all these numbers have the same symbol next to it.

Wrong. It's a different symbol every time.

Oh nevermind the symbols change everytime but your general premise is correct. Do the same number combination twise in a row to see what I mean. :crazy:

This is, I think, the third different one along this premise that I have seen, and they all work the same way... basically, if you are choosing a two-digit number at random, your result will always be a number congruent to 0 (modulo 9) between 9 and 81. So they only have to deal with making sure nine numbers work out right... (unless of course, they allow you to choose a single-digit number, in which case they'd have to add zero, a tenth integer).

To make it harder to see that they also randomize all the symbols so the symbol associated with those 9 possible numbers changes everytime. Whatever I'm stupid I can't believe it took me like 50 times through to see that.

yup, noticed it on seccond try through. the numbers: 0,9,18,27,36,45,54,63,66,67,72,81 will always have same sign, and it will always be the same one he shows. also randomly other numbers will ahve same sign to throw you of.
