There is a countless number of petals on daisies. This is simply due to the fact that there are wild variations in the amount of petals each type of daisy will have, and, even daisies of the same type will vary quite greatly.

So, in short, use a magic eight ball and be done with it.

I know there are two petals on a bike, but other than that I am clueless.

Ummm, if you could figure it out in advance, you would then lose the prediction part of doing it randomly (if you believe in that sort of thing anyway).

What you think are petals are not petals. They are bracts. In the middle of the daisy are multiple small flowers, each with five petals.

This unfortunately will not help you with your loves me loves me not problem.
