found this on the web

The game asks you to select any two digit number (example 25).  Next, you are to subtract the both the first and second digits from your number (example: 25 – 2 – 5 = 18).  Then you are to select a gift from a grid of all possible answers.  In the final page, Regifting Robin correctly guesses your gift.  So how does this nifty trick work?The equation can be represented as:  (10*x + y) – x – y = 9*xUsing our example, x = 2 and y = 5, so that’s (10*2 + 5) – 2 – 5 = 9*2 = 18.In the gift grid, each 9*x box has the same gift, e.g., the boxes numbered 9, 18, 27, 36, etc. all are marked “Bath Salts.”The selected gift is changed each time to make the trick seem more real.

explained again

(10 x 2=20) then do 20+4=24 rightthen do what they asked 24-2-4= 18 SO now 18/2=9 (18 devided by 2 equals 9)How they guess YOUR ANSWER correctly, all of the game is based off of the numer 9, all of the multiples of 9= 9, 18, 27, 36, 45 etc. so the gifts just keep changing as you keep trying to figure it out! so basically 9 18 27 36 45 and so on, are all the same gifts, and they change everytime you try again. So when you use the formula that they gave to you 25-2-5 will end up in the multiples of 9. GET IT!!!

i sort of understand not 100% though

There are only nine possible answers to the question Polly and each of those nine boxes contain the same gift so it doesn't matter which number you pick to begin with.

Thanks for the explanation, but you must admit, it was cleverly done.

I love these "silly" little games. :lol:
