Check out 20q.com.

I bought my granddaughter a handheld version of this but she has a hard time getting it away from the adults. I was in the store before I bought it and thought of 'helicopter.' It never even asked me if I was thinking of something that flys and it guessed helicopter. Simple principal really but quite good at questioning and guessing.

Pretty simple once you see what they're doing.

Don't believe I had to set up a spreadsheet to see the number sequence.

All the symbols that display are a multiple of nine.

For example 78

7+8=15

78-15=63

63 is a multiple of nine. So the symbol for the multiples of nine will display every time.

i've always been facinated by 9s. for example, how every digit of a multiple of nine always adds up to nine.

that is, 9x2=18....1+8=9 or 9x8=72....7+2=9

even works for larger multiples...but you have to keep adding

9x654 = 5886....5+8+8+6=27.....2+7=9

someone once explained this to me in mathematical proof, but i'll be damned if i can remember the layman's logic. i just know that most of these '9' tricks work off of this phenomenon...if that's what you call it.

if it ain't broke, break it.

Its called a "digital prime".

There is a "bar trick" that uses digital primes to "WOW" people with.

All you have to do is memorize a few multiples of 9. Like 81, 90, 99, 108, and so on.

Have them mutliply any number by a multiple of 9. For instance,

1234 x 108= 133272

Tell them to remove one digit. Then write down the remaining numbers for you.

So, 13272 would be an answer.

Tell them your going to fill in the missing number.

Add these numbers together,

1+3+2+7+2=15 then 1+5=6

Subtract 6 from 9 and you have the missing number.

This doesn't work if they remove a 0 or a 9.

actually, you'd have a 50/50 chance of guessing they removed a 0 or a 9, because when you do your addition of digits, they would come out to a multiple of 9, rather than being short a few numbers, no?

so, you couldnt be perfect. but, there's only a 1/5 chance they pick a number you cant know for certain, and a 1 in 2 chance on that one. so, there's a 1/10 chance you get busted...or if you're an optimist 90% chance of getting it right.

you could say the sun was in your eyes i guess

if it ain't broke, break it.

Or that Gas from Venus blocked your view of the world they live in.

Actually, you could remove the 0, but not the 9's. and just know that an answer of 9 means they left out a zero.

Here is a case in point....

99 * 110 = 10890

1+0+8+0=18 1+8=9

But....

1+0+8+9=18 1+8=9

I think, if you use 108 you will never have a 9 in the answer. I haven't tested it to be sure.
