The Theory of 9

  1. Oct 26, 2003 #1
    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 know...so 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.
