Re: O/T Don\'t try this at home
IT DIDN'T WORK FOR ME
Of course the 2 digit number I picked was "00", there's nothing that says I can't.
It was too predictable, I reasoned that a 2 digit number XY is shorthand notation for 10X+Y
So the formula becomes (10X+Y)-(X+Y)
Distributing the minus sign over the second term and eliminating the parenthesis becomes:
Which simplifies to:
10X-X or, 9X
For all values of X the symbol was the same except for X=0. I knew what would be displayed so I picked 00 for my number.
