Ok! this one stumps me.

Do you really want the answer? Spoiler space.. Highlight to reveal: Every combination results in the same symbol. The symbol is changed every round, but it is the same for any number you pick. Clever though!

Caitlin beat me to it! Every legal answer for doubledigit numbers results in a multiple of 9. The Excel formula is =a1(int(a1/10)+mod(a1,10)) where a1 is the number you chose. This simplifies to =9*int(a1/10). For example, 12 gives a result of 9; 22 gives 18; 32 gives 27; etc. All those multiples have the same symbol on the web page. (The symbol for 0 is also the same although 0 is not a possible result). The symbols change randomly for each attempt to make things more mysterious. Pierre
