# Ok............so how does this work?

• thanks cath

Spooky!
• spooky.

and it was my star sign too.

• peasy weasy - if the digit sof the two digit number are a and b, for the sake of argument, then that's a lots of ten a b lots of units. So the value of the number you get when you put a and b toegther is

10a + b

add the digits together and you get a + b

subtract that from the first one, and you get

10a + b - (a+b), or

10a - a + b - b, which equals 9a

So the answer will always be a multiple of 9 - 9, 18, 27 etc

Guess what - those each have the same symbol!
• Oooo - I finally found a use for algebra :oD

Wow, my star sign too come to think of it. Now THAT is weird!

Spoil sport, Bear!

Bet it wasn't your star sign tho.
• Deck...

eh..?

• D'oh don't have forum faces on - didn't see it were you Bear, what the feck are you on about..?
• No, it wasn't.

It does seem to re-organise the symbols for the various numbers so that if you have more than one go, it won't always give the same answer
• Why do peeps keep saying that??

Have you not heard that line - "Deck the halls with boughs of holly"?
• um, I'm a lazy git and only read the "deck the halls..." bit - didn't see the "Bear" in it

:-D

What are YOU on about Bear? Cath wasn't questioning the deck bit.
• Excellent Bear!

Knew there was an easy solution :-)

• ROFL!!!

I'm debating put on a santa's hat or giving me some wings. Need to get creative.
• oh right - oh - you mean the algebra?

s'maths, innit?

you'll learn it when you go to big school, Sezz )
• Got a pic all lined up, but no point uploading it now as I won't be able to get it up until Monday (
• ✭✭✭
I have maths A'level thank you.
• Well I was referring to your picture age, but if you're going on real age, then with a maths A level, you shouldn't have any problem understand basic algebra like that.
• ✭✭✭
Never said I did, did I?
• well you did ask what I was on about. What were you referring to then? It apparently isn't my title, so if it isn't the algebra, then what?
• Blimey - was me what asked what you was on about innit!

:-D
• ✭✭✭
LOL!
• you did, but Sezz repeated the question.
• oh gawd - I'm confused now! :os
• ROFL

:-D

Annnnnnnywaaaaaaaaay...
