Re: This is driving me bananas

Check it out this way Bert. You will notice the prize changes to different numbers each time to make it look better. Now do a number subtraction like it says to do and see what the prize is but dont close the prizes page...now just think of any other number again and do the subtraction without closing the page with the prizes..you will come up with a differnt answer but the prize will be the same.

Re: This is driving me bananas

I'm guessing there is only a select amount of answers when you do numbers in that fashion and they have all of those answers coverd by the same prize. By shifting the prize to a new spot each time the page is refreshed , it makes it seem like a toally new answer.

Just had a work out. The answer will always be 9,18,27,36,45 etc..or each 9th number but because the prize is shifted each refresh then it seems like its a new prize each time..veeery cunning haha. The freakishness of number patterns.

Re: This is driving me bananas

It still makes me wonder how it knows what numbers you pick. The answer can be any one of those you mentioned but it seems to figure out which one you picked. I'm probably a little dense in figuring it out. Even with your explanation, I'm still confused.

Re: This is driving me bananas

I got it. after your explanation I noticed every one of those numbers you mentioned has the same prize. Thanks for clearing that up.
