eg:

20 = 20 - 2 = 18

21 = 21 - 3 = 18

22 = 22 - 4 = 18

23 = 23 - 5 = 18

24 = 24 - 6 = 18

25 = 25 - 7 = 18

26 = 26 - 8 = 18

27 = 27 - 9 = 18

28 = 28 - 10 = 18

29 = 29 - 11 = 18

30 = 30 - 3 = 27

Them, they have the same symbol on each of the 'hot numbers' (which all happen to be multiples of 9)

9, 18, 27, 36 etc. etc.

Peasy

When you get to the results screen, 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54 etc all have the SAME image

The selected image on each iteration is different, but the important thing is that the same image is on every one of those numbers

So they just display that image

Quote There are some clever guys on the forum

Maybe not as many as I first thought, and I include me as I don't have the patience, but I knew Barry would be in there

Ok, so I can't help it It's one of those things that I *have* to figure out

Part of my OCD obsession, along with listening to the radio in the car with the volume on an even number.

O dear, I'd better stop

I bet you are one of these people that sorts your small change by size and then chucks it back in your pocket.

*Guilty by admission*

When I get some biscuits with my coffee I have to get 4...not 3 or 5.

Your number is therefore 10X+Y

Add together the two digits X+Y

Subtract from the original number gives you:

10X+Y-(X+Y)

Simplifying cancels the Y and reduces it to 9X

The table of characters always has the same character for all values of X, ie 1X=9, 2X=18, etc

So irrespective of what number you choose, the symbol will always be the same as that on every 9th digit.

Well OK I know it has a lot of uses. But now I've seen one while I was thinking about it.

Er, I'll get me coat..

I'd better check that there's no change in the pocket.....

The problem is - I always thought doing that was completely normal...
