Magic Number Nine or What Part of Nine Don't You Underdtand? - Happy Blogue Day

9 is a fascinating number. Some say 9 is a magical number. One thing is certain, number 9 is full of surprises.

Any number that is multiplied by nine reduces back to 9 when the digits of the sum are added together.

9x9=81
8+1=9 

9x3=27
2+7=9

9x582= 5238
5+2+3+8=18
1+8=9

and etc.

Take any number and add up its components, 523713 for example. 

5+2+3+7+1+3=21

subtract the sum, (21) from the original number, (523713).

523713-21=523692 
5+2+3+6+9+2=27
2+7=9

You will always end up with the number nine, no matter what number you begin with.

Take any number, 70644 for example. Reverse the digits, (44607), and subtract the smaller from the larger number.

70644-44607=26037
2+6+0+3+7=18
1+8=9

Again, you will always end up with the number nine, no matter what number you start with.

Take any three digit number with dis-similar first and last digits, 864 for example. Reverse the digits and subtract the smaller number from the larger.


864-468=396

The digit in the middle will always be nine and the other two numbers will always add up to nine. When all three numbers are added together, the sum will always be 9.


3+9+6=18
1+8=9

Large numbers that are divided by nine result in duplicate numbers.


1 million divided by 9 = 111,111
2 million divided by 9 = 222,222
3 million divided by 9 = 333,333
4 million divided by 9 = 444,444
5 million divided by 9 = 555,555
and etc.

And as if that isn't enough, check out this table of numbers.

0x9+1=1
1x9+2=11
12x9+3=111
123x9+4=1111
1234x9+5=11111
12345x9+6=111111
123456x9+7=1111111
1234567x9+8=11111111
12345678x9+9=111111111
 123456789x9+10=1111111111

Obviously, nine is profoundly significant and a fitting celebratory number for Zenberg Blogue's 9th birthday. 

9 times around the sun = 3285 days
3+2+8+5=18
1+8=9

I hope nine turns you on too.

Happy Blogday - 4


Johan und Metal Shop
I must have been having fun because the past year flew by so quickly. I can't believe this blog is already four years old. So much has happened in those four years.
