It's either something very complicated or something very simple, right in front of me.

I'm guessing a javascript of some kind, that takes the numbers you put in (minus the one you circles) and figures out all the combinations of numbers that would be subtracted to get it, with all the numbers that could be in it and now aren't.

I tried doing it without the the subtracting. Like just thinking of number "1" and putting in 2-3-4 and it came out with 9 and not 1. (and it doesn't always come out with 9 for the answer. I know there's something that always comes up to 9 no matter how you do it).

I also tried thinking of a different number than I circled in case it WAS reading my mind it still gave the one I circled.

It must have something to do with the numbers you put in, that's the only interaction with the program.

And even though there are countless combinations of numbers that could be used (subtracted) there's still only 1-9 that can be missing from the answer.

But still.... it's always right (if you do it as it says).

Any ideas?
