This website ...

How the hell does this work it every time.................

there is nothing on the right saying 'guess the regift'

Every answer will be divisible by 9...and all these answers will say holiday broach (think they mean brooch!!)

Nope, answer is different every time. Freaky :w00t:

It can be beaten though............use the same number twice in a row. :-D

(what it does is make sure that mathmatically it can only be one item each time providing you change your numbers from the last go) :thumbsup:

tried that...............didn't work

Mmmmmmmm....

Simple - select any 2 digit number, say xy
That is x in the 10s column and y in the 1s column so we have 10x + y
Now subtract x and y, so we have
10x + y -x -y = 9x
So the answer is always a multiple of 9
Take a look at the list of gifts. Every multiple of 9 is the same gift, which is the one which is "chosen".

Not hard - just simple maths.

Ok so show us in breakdown how it get the correct answer every time?.

I tried it with the same numbers and using your logic its still wrong...........

Can you give me a breakdown of more detail on How!! its done?

My logic is correct - and it doesn't get much simpler than that.
1. It always comes up with a multiple of 9 - that is 9 timex x where x is the first digit.
2. Every multiple of 9 has the same answer
3. That is the answer given back to you.
Simples.
