It is always the 'flower' design. Check all the numbers and whatever number you get will always be a flower.

The symbols change round every time and the answer is always multiples of 9.

Try it again and look, every multiple of 9 has the same symbol.

Do it again and you'll see the symbols change round but multiples of 9 have the same ones.

There's lots of them all based on the same thing... Plus I was taught it in high school all them years ago by my math teacher. Nothing new or exciting.

Consider a two digit number as (10 x first number)+second number. Now subtract the first number and the second number and you will be left with (9 x first number). The answer is always the first number multiplied by nine.

This gives possible answers of 9,18,27,36,54,63,72,81.

Each of these numbers has the same symbol associated with it so there is only possible answer. No magic involved.

2nd last sentence should read
'there is only one possible answer'
