Hello!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Why is it so, that if you have a number, for example 183, you take the sum of the digits of that number, so 183-(1+8+3), u get a number that is always dividable by 9?

I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, I'm not very good at math but still curious to know.
