Frog
http://nzmaths.co.nz/leap-frogs Tells you about the algebra patterns behind the solutions
http://www.nzmaths.co.nz/bright-sparks Best One - choose the number of frogs
There are lots of applets of the same puzzle - it is very popular!

We proved it algebraically - we let a and b represent the two digits
10a+b was the chosen number
a+b was taken off
10a + b - (a + b)
=10a + b - a - b
=9a
So the digit in the tens col, multiplied by 9 is the answer => always a multiple of 9!
We also tested 99 - which gives 81 - so 90 and 99 are multiples of 9 that can never be chosen.


Then after doing some serious work on solving equations which had algebraic fractions in them we spent a few minutes on this:
