I do not know who to explain it in layman terms, except by saying it is based on "the rule of 9".

The rule of the numbers 9 and 11 are the basis of many mathmatical magic tricks.

Go back to the link you provided. Pick no number. Just look at the number under the symbol that appears on the screen after you have clicked thru the next buttons.

The symbols will change, but the order of numbers under the symbols will not.

The symbols will always be over a number, that when added, equals 9.

If you hit the again button to play the game over and write down the order of numbers that are beneath the symbol, you will see that they are the only numbers when added together

equal 9.

The symbols will always follow the number order of 9,18,27,36,45,54,63 and 72.

One can do some great card tricks following the same rule.

Here is a cut and paste about the properties of the number 9;Whenever you have ... a number plus nine,

Take "1" away from that number, and add it to the nine.

Now bring that number on down; 9 and 1 makes 10;

Bring the ten on down, and you're right once again!

THE NINE RULE!

Now let's take 6;

6 + 9

Take "1" away from 6, and it makes 5.

Now add the "1" to the 9 ... 1 and 9 makes 10;

5 and 10 make 15,

Let's all shout it again!

It's THE NINE RULE!

6 + 9 = 15

Now let's take 4;

4 + 9

Take "1" away from 4, and it makes 3.

Now add the "1" to the 9 ... 1 and 9 makes 10;

3 and 10 make 13,

Let's all shout it again!

It's THE NINE RULE!

4 + 9 = 13

Now let's take 7;

7 + 9

Take "1" away from 7, and it makes 6.

Now add the "1" to the 9 ... 1 and 9 makes 10;

6 and 10 make 16,

Let's all shout it again!

It's THE NINE RULE!

7 + 9 = 16

Now let's take 5;

5 + 9

Take "1" away from 5, and it makes 4.

Now add the "1" to the 9 ... 1 and 9 makes 10;

4 and 10 make 14,

Let's all shout it again!

It's THE NINE RULE!

5 + 9 = 14

That is about as layman as I can get on the subject.

It has fascinated me since childhood how you can multipy any number by 9 and add the individual numbers together and always have 9 as the sum.
