The symbols that you look up change every time...so use the same 2 digit number over and over, (like 20 -2 = 18) and the corresponding symbol will change each time. They have assigned that same symbol to all of the possible answers for each try. Not magic, just slight of eye! **************************** Barb Engvall =^..^= Teacher-Librarian John Campbell Elem Selah, WA macbarb@charter.net http://www.selah.k12.wa.us/JC/jc.cfm On Apr 22, 2006, at 9:30 AM, DAVID DENNING wrote: >O wise ones:> >My friend just sent me a math-related "mind-reading" site, and I>have figured out how it works, but I can't prove it.
