Very interesting (in the voice of the old Laugh In character)

Basically, it's a formula.
Pick a number X
When you transpose the digits of X (turning 1234 into 1324) and take the differnce you will have a number divisible by nine
Numbers that are divisible by nine have a unique property. That property is: the sum of their digits is also divisible by nine (for instance 123453 is divisible by nine because 1+2+3+4+5+3=18)
The guy asks you for the numbers you didn't circle.
So basically the equation works like this.
known+known+known+unknown=something divisible by nine
( BTW, I did not figure this out on my own. Some math nerd explained it to me on another board. I failed math more times than I can count.)
