While matching the cards, just keep in mind that the sum of the numbers on the two cards you are matching, should be exactly 10. For example, if the card shown at the top center of the screen is “9” than you have to select “1” from the bottom two rows to make the total sum equal to “10”.

You can also change the sum of the cards to required to match the cards successfully. You can set the sum to be anything between 5 to 20 and then 60 or 100.
