2x107^2+2x113^2+2x163^2=101574

(2+1)(0+7+2+2+1+1+3+2+2+1+6+3x2)=99

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

October the 21st, 1968 is not my DOB.

Your non-DOB date is 365 days before my non-DOB date, which must have some significance, I'd say...but I don't know what.

Re: Add 99 more and post it forever.

Except that I am older than you are.

102465

The sum of the digits of this is 9. Truly an amazing fact and one I was amazed to discover.

Re: Add 99 more and post it forever.

I would have been similarly amazed - and totally astounded, gob-smacked and flabbergasted also - had I, too, discovered that incredible (non-)fact! You must have a different calculator than mine.

102564

The 25th of October 1964...the day on which the Rolling Stones first appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show. Their faces haven't changed one bit over the years, either!

Re: Add 99 more and post it forever.

Hi;

Blame M, not me.

IntegerDigits[102465] // Total
IntegerDigits[%] // Total

2x107^2+2x108^2+2x112^2+2x125^2 = 102564

Re: Add 99 more and post it forever.

Hi Bobby,

See my signature...

M code: Line 1 gives "the sum of the digits" (which is what you said) and results in 18 (which is what I got too), while line 2 goes on to give the digital root (which you didn't mention, but which I knew you meant, but ignored...because I like typing).

Ketchup: 102663

Hi;

You are correct and I also got out of sync. Sorry for the error.

105^2+108^2+109^2+2•110^2+111^2+123^2+129^2 = 102861
