Here is why it works, folks:

Two arbitrary digits, X and Y...the number is represented as 10x+y.
Now, add the individual digits together, you get x+y
Now, subtract from original:  10x+y-(x+y), or 10x+y-x-y
The +y and -y cancel, so you get 10x-x, or 9x.
All multiples of 9 are assigned the same symbol, which changes at each page
reload.  All other numbered symbols are assigned randomly.

Sorry to take the mystery out of it for everyone...

Hint 1: The pictures associated with the numbers change every time. ;)
Hint 2: Try clicking the back button and trying a different number =
instead of playing again! ;)
