1 + 2 + 0 + 6= 9

12 + 6= 18 and 1 + 8= 9

0 + 4 + 3 + 8= 15 and 1 + 5= 6

4 + 38= 42 and 4 + 2= 6

6 and 6...Hmm..... - 09-20-2003Brian
Hmm.

That's weird - 09-20-2003KingZoolerius66

HOLY CRAP!

Those are some crazy math skills you have there! - 09-20-2003joshdickRe: ~~Time Number Theory~Quote:

I'm not flaming you....but:

It really is pointless to call it the time number theory....it's just one of those weird 'number patterns' that have to do with our numbering system being base10.

Take a 3 digit number and do it, a 4 digit, 5 or even a 6 digit number and it still works. Take any fricking number and do it, it will always work. Wow he really pulled the wool over your eyes... - 09-20-2003Thantos
Convert it to base octo and then see if it works :)

**I'll truly believe that when I see a proof. My suggestion is to write a program that will execute and display those calculations for every minute. Then, post the code and results. Then, I will be impressed, and I will believe.**

you would think a math major would want to prove it mathematically... would you prove anything even if it works for all base 10 numbers? - 09-20-2003Leeman_s
You guys do get what I mean, right? It works for all numbers, and has nothing to do with time.

If the sum of the digits is evenly divisible by 3 or 9, the original number is as well. If you're dealing with insanely large numbers, you can sum the digits of the sum of the digits of the original number, ad infinitum. - 09-20-2003KingZoolerius66

1+2+0+0=3

12+0+0=12

You did it wrong.

12:00PM EST

1 + 2 + 0 + 0= 3;

12 + 0= 12 and 1 + 2= 3; - 09-20-2003joshdickRe: Re: Re: ~~Time Number Theory~Quote:

I'd love to prove it mathematically, put I have neither the time nor the capability. However, I know it'd be quite easy to write a program to prove this theory for all cases. - 09-21-2003nickname_changed

1 + 2 + 0 + 8 = 11

12 + 08 = 20

2 + 0 = 2

Doesn't work out.....
