Argh, how I hate those mean kids and their newfangled game! enter image description here The answer will be two words.

    $\begingroup$ I hope these aren't factorials... because 8760! is a rather large number... :P $\endgroup$ – Prince North Læraðr Jun 16 '19 at 23:11

    $\begingroup$ At least on my device, all the speech bubbles seem white on the inside (except for numbers and !), but when I click on the image, only 6570!, 5169!, 3135!, 5163!, 4152!, 7215!, 7455!, 8760!, and 4548! are white, and the rest are grey. $\endgroup$ – Duck Jun 17 '19 at 21:48

    $\begingroup$ It looks like numbers that were changed by OP in an early edit have been reverted to their pre-edit values with the most recent edit. @Who is that intentional? $\endgroup$ – Rubio Jun 23 '19 at 4:24

Partial Answer for a Picture in case it helps someone see something:

Following the rules of: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fizz_buzz

I have replaced all the numbers divisible by 3 with FIZZ, 5 by BUZZ, and by 15 FIZZBUZZ.

enter image description here


Assume that both:
1. The speech bubbles all represent a group of players attempting to provide answers to the game;
2. The speech bubbles which remain when the image is clicked are the responses considered valid.

Then the rule governing whether an answer is valid is simply whether:

It is divisible by 3

This is hinted at in the title, since:

In the classroom mathematics game 'FizzBuzz' the word 'fizz' is used to replace all numbers divisible by 3.

    $\begingroup$ 3498 does not remain but is divisible by 3. Also, 5517 $\endgroup$ – hexomino Jun 18 '19 at 8:55
  • $\begingroup$ @hexomino Ah, true... but then with so many kids calling out their answers all at once, maybe they just didn't get heard amid all the commotion ;-) (Will try to spot why those 2 are excluded, but given the title I would think the answer would be heavily connected to this line of thinking...) $\endgroup$ – Stiv Jun 18 '19 at 9:36

    $\begingroup$ @Who What do you mean, rescind? Posting answers which turn out not to be correct is perfectly OK - someone can find the correct answer later. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Jun 21 '19 at 16:16

    $\begingroup$ @Randal'Thor; I don't think the OP wants to auto-bounty to a wrong answer! $\endgroup$ – JMP Jun 22 '19 at 1:40
