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

    4 + 38= 42 and 4 + 2= 6

    6 and 6...Hmm.....

    HOLY CRAP!

    Those are some crazy math skills you have there!
    Away.

    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.

    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...

    Convert it to base octo and then see if it works

    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?

    You guys do get what I mean, right? It works for all numbers, and has nothing to do with time.

    Yes; it's the basis for quickly testing whether a number is evenly divisible by 3 or 9.

    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.

    You did it wrong.

    1 + 2 + 0 + 0= 3;
    12 + 0= 12 and 1 + 2= 3;

    Yeah, it'd prove that it works for all times of the day

    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.

    1 + 2 + 0 + 8 = 11
    12 + 08 = 20
    2 + 0 = 2

    Doesn't work out.....
