Game on An ESL Site

I don't know how this is specifically related to teaching English as a Second Language, but it's on an ESL site and it's quite fantastic.

If you know how it works, please let me know.

Here's the link to an "ESL game."

Using their specific mathematical equation, there are only 9 possible final number solutions (in multiples of 9).
10 through 19 will always equal 9
20 through 29 will always equal 18
30 through 39 will always equal 27
And so on...

Each of those 9 possible solutions all get assigned the same symbol. So, the gopher is only telling you the symbol that's assigned to those 9 numbers.
If the gopher tried to guess your number, it'd have a 1 out of 9 chance of getting it correct.
Which isn't as interesting.
Which is why the symbol assignment is more appealing!
