Hello, I have just joined the math is fun forum. I expect interesting things here and will also share my experience of math. For example, the miracle of digit 9. The product of digit nine in interaction with itself will always be nine (9 x 9 = 18 = 1+8 =9).

Hi RadioBoy;

Welcome to the forum.

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.**

hi RadioBoy,

**Welcome to the forum.**

For example, the miracle of digit 9. The product of digit nine in interaction with itself will always be nine (9 x 9 = 18 = 1+8 =9).

or a number that reduces to nine eg. 109739369 x 9 = 987654321 ....9+8+7+6+5+4+3+2+1= 45 ... 4+5 = 9.

So here's a challenge:

Why does this happen?

Why doesn't it happen for, say, 7?

What other numbers does it happen for?
