As far as I can tell, any 2 digit number will result in a set amount of possible answers. On this chart of symbols, those set answers all have the same symbol. So, no matter which 2 digit number you start with, your answer will always be one of the set numbers. Eg. 9, 18, 27, 36, and so on. Try this with any 2 digit number, and keep your eyes on the chart, as the symbols change, but these set answers will always have the same symbol. Does that make sense?

I don't have time to do the arithmetical proof right now, but each set of 10, the 10s, 20s, 30s etc. cause you to end up on the same symbol, which will always be located at 9,18,27,36,45,54,63,72,81. Always.Edited to add, actually I do have time: each number,c, is made of two digits, a and b. 10a+b=c 10a+b(a+b)= 9a. Notice that the chosen shape is always at a number that is a multiple of 9.
