    I use a variation of this question several times a week in the lab when I test the effluent from our wastewater treatment plant. I have often wished I had payed better attention during Algebra class so I wouldn't have to be refreshing my memory on how to calculate volumes of pipes and how that affects flows. You don't know what the future holds in store for you. Like you, I didn't think I would ever need this information. I had no plans to get into a job where I would need to know this sort of stuff, but I did. Had I been told that I would need to know this sort of thing to treat wastewater, I wouldn't have believed it. So....learn the things they are trying to stuff into your head in school, you don't know when some tidbit of knowledge will come in handy or even which bit will make your job/career easier.

    I will now get off my soapbox. Thank you [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    So pay aattention in algebra or you'll never work in a wastewater treatment plant. I used algebra a lot too when I did septic system work too. Without algebra you won't do that either. Algebra gets done in morgues every day too. No algebra = no job in morgue. So study your algebra.

    aint workin...sorry but it never works for me. If you think about most internet magic tricks long enough you can find out how they work... this one i think is fromt the power of suggestion.
    So if I am hoping i see the symbol, I will, if i dun, then i wont... kind of a hallucianation insanity... very cool
    well hell.. thats what i get for not reading the first page. congrats to the genius who figured it out

The site tells you to add X + Y and subtract it from 10X + Y. That's 10X + Y - X - Y and that's equal to 9X. So, no matter what two digit number you chose, you'll end up with a multiple of 9. And that table uses the same symbol for 9, 18, 27, and every other whole number multiple of 9, up through 81. Those are the only possible answers if you start with a two digit number.
