The Theory of 9

i was playing with numbers the other day and noticed this

- Anything multiplied by 9, will equal 9 when added

this is really weird considering that it doesent work with any #

i know this belongs in the math forums, but using physics could generate a good theory,

it may be stupid but u never any thoughts?, any observations would be appreciated also

You will find the same "strangness" attached to 1 in a binary system, 2 in a teriary system. This behavior is a property of the largest integer.

Yes this belongs in the Math forums.
