Personally, I think that [math] is much more startling.

Hang on, peeps, I got it now:
Time you learned love and lust, they both have 4 letters

Each of the words mentioned has 4 letters.
And there are 2 words.
4 and 2 gives us 42.
Any questions? :coffee:

What's with the math? there is nothing out of the ordinary or special with this.

It's the result of one of the many intricacies of math, this one in particular enables you to know if a certain number is divisible by 3 --> you add up the individual digits of the number like you did your original post the example.
Now if the result is divisible by 3 then you know the original number is also divisible by 3.

Since you multiply by 12 each time, and 12 is divisible by 3, the result will also be divisible by 3.

For example if I take some random number 75584584124151245811
and add every individual digit 7+5+5+8+4+5+8+4+1+2+4+1+5+1+2+4+5+8+1+1 = 81 (which is divisible by 3)
now if we divide 75584584124151245811 by 3 we get the nice round number of 25194861374717081937

The fact that you each time get the same series 3 - 6 - 9 is due to even simpler mathematics.

mystery solved, you're welcome.

GapWim, it's about love and lust. And as Regina rightly pointed out the answer is 42, which is 14 if divided by 3. So this fact proves the holy trinity, and that at least one aspect of it is horny.

Returning (with apologies) to mathematical seriousness: the phenomenon noted in the first part of the OP is the inevitable consequence of using 10 as the basis for our counting system.

Ten has the property that, if you divide it by the number one less than it (nine) or by the square root of that number (three), the remainder is 1. We say that 10 is congruent to 1 modulo 3 (or modulo 9), meaning that dividing either of these numbers by three (or nine) leaves the same remainder.

Ten squared (one hundred) also leaves the remainder 1 if you divide it by three (or nine), and in fact this is one of the properties of congruence: if two numbers a and b are congruent modulo a certain number, then so are the k-th power of a and b (where k is an integer), i.e. [math] is congruent to [math] (modulo that number). For instance, [math] is congruent to [math], and by induction all powers of 10 are therefore congruent to one another (modulo three).

When we represent a whole number in our system on the base 10, we are expressing that number in terms of multiples of powers of 10; for example
[math]

Now, another property of congruence is that, if a is congruent to b (modulo a certain number) and c is congruent to d (modulo the same number), then the product ab is congruent to cd (modulo the same number); so we can easily see that
[math] is congruent to [math] is congruent to [math], and [math] is congruent to [math], all modulo three (or nine, if you insist). So 300 is congruent to 3, 80 is congruent to 8, and 2 is congruent to 2 (duh).

And finally, a further property of congruence is that if a is congruent to b (modulo a certain number) and c is congruent to d (modulo the same number), then a+b is congruent to c+d (modulo that number). So 300 + 80 + 2 is congruent to 3 + 8 + 2, and we arrive at the result that any number is congruent (leaves the same remainder on division) to the sum of its digits (modulo three or nine).

And what I wanted to work round to is that you inevitably get the same result, whatever base your counting system has. If, for instance, we used the base 6, we could apply the same rule with respect to division by 5: if the sum of the digits is divisible by 5, so is the number itself. If we used the base 127, it would work with division by 126. And so on.

No, no, no, it's magic.
The problem with fantasies is you can't really insist that everyone else believes in yours, the other problem with fantasies is that most believers of fantasies eventually get around to doing exactly that.

Indeed amazing. Everything is 3 - 6 - 9. Proving beyond doubt that the goose drank wine. After that, the monkey took a ride on the street car line. Unfortunately, the line broke and the monkey got choked, but despair not - they all went to heaven in a little rowboat.
