I figured this out after about 10 minutes of staring at it. Notice that each time you hit the thing and it comes up with the symbol, the right side fades away. That's because when you "try again," different sets of symbols appear. The guy mathematically calculated the symbols to work out in any combonation for 99 sets. Must have taken him a long time.
If that sounds confusing, let me know I can further elaborate and clear up what I'm trying to say.

This might also help you understand.
When you open the page, just do the same formula for about 4 random numbers. They all come out to be the same symbol...go ahead, try. Now, after you click the glass thing, the right side will fade, and then hit try again, and do the same thing with another 4 random numbers (or more). Same symbol each time (different one per page).

Wow. That was a complicated answer. But I understand it. I did the formula you are supposed to do 4 seperate times with different numbers, but did not click the "magic ball". The answers always ended up with the same symbol. I see (I think I do at least) that there are only a few possible numbers you could come up with as an answer, and all of those have the same symbol. And only those answers change the symbol after each try.

Do the site with a number less than 10. It will always get it wrong.
If you did it with a one-digit number, the result would be zero, which means that for it to work, he should have made zero the same symbol as each multiple of 9. But the site did say to choose a two-digit number...
