Wizardy

Ok, technically not a Free game nor really a game, but the damn thing is almost always right. Almost freaky. Try this little flash game, Wizardy:

Well, since the answer will always be multiplication of 9 and the 'game' always puts the same symbol under these numbers (9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81), it's bound to be right. "Almost always"? Better revise your calculus. ;-)

yeah, primary school math:

10*x+y - (x+y) = 9*x

I'm so not geek enough. :P

Naah, I was amazed by this for 2 days before I thought about solution :)

Calculus? If you think this is calculus, maybe you need to revise your calculus ;-)

Anyway, I think the key to solving this kind of problems is to experiment. As any magician knows, it's all about baffling the spectator, diverting the attention away from the things that will give away the secret. Experiment, find the pattern (second digit doesn't matter, result always divisable by 9) and you have solved the problem within seconds.

Any more puzzles? :-p

My bad. I vaguely recalled they had something like calculus taught in American schools and I thought that's more or less arithmetic (which I wanted to write at first, but then I changed it to calculus). Well, apparently it's not calculus then. Math should be right, though. ;-)

Man, I _wish_ calculus was just simple arithmetic... lol
