Re: O/T Don\'t try this at home


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.
