take any 3 digit number (as per original instruction, oh wait  1 cant have any repeating number like 11 in it, 2  must be dscending numbers like 654 or 643 or 841)
so you take your number and subtract from it its reverse  like 456.
now take your answer and add to it its reverse.
the answer is supposedly always 1089!

I know this might sound crazy but i think it might be some bad minded people into this stuff so investigate with caution IF AT ALL  probably a lot of people don't want you to know about this if it is a useful secret which i think it might be... not sure.
Edit  I may have been irational in saying this, sorry if I offended.

Yes, it does sound crazy  Badminded? Who are the people that don't want you to know about this "useful secret"? Magicians?
Apparently the secret is out:

There's nothing secret about it. I mean there's a wikipedia page about it for god's sake...

They probably aint telling us have the strory like usual.

What might be the other half? And who is "they"?

The only question whose answer is guarded more secretly then the answer to your second question.

You're not making any sense. What is this "secret" that doesn't seem to exist you keep thinking does exist. Like I wrote, there's no hidden "mystery".
1089 is a Reverse divisible number and there are many others:
In number theory, reversing the digits of a number n sometimes produces another number m that is divisible by n. This happens trivially when n is a palindromic number; the nontrivial reverse divisors are
1089, 2178, 10989, 21978, 109989, 219978, 1099989, 2199978, ... (sequence A008919 in the OEIS).
For instance, 1089 Χ 9 = 9801, the reversal of 1089, and 2178 Χ 4 = 8712, the reversal of 2178.[1][2][3][4] The multiples produced by reversing these numbers, such as 9801 or 8712, are sometimes called palintiples.[5]

Does everything you don't understand have to be some conspiratorial endeavor?

Thanks for posting that info Stash.
To be honest i dont really know and was kindof joking, but
I am going to have to look at that, as i think I heard the mayans counted in 9's ( ? instead of 10's ? ) and i always thought they used it to predict the celestial calendar which described most if not all celestial events for something like 400 thousand years (ending 2012) with uncanny accuracy.

It was base 20, not 9.

Oh yeah...
i think they had a thing with counting with nines too.

It doesn't have to be a conspiracy but megalithic polygonal ancient construction  as is found in ancient mexican ruins and all over the world  it's pretty hard to sweep under the rug so to speak. Have you looked into that? Not that they are necessarily related, but like i said  I am under the impression that they may have come from the same time and place...Many yrs ago i read a 300 page book about the nayan calendar and i remeber distincly they talked about some aort of 9 based counting.

Do you mean this:
"Polygonal masonry is a technique of stone wall construction. True polygonal masonry is a technique wherein the visible surfaces of the stones are dressed with straight sides or joints, giving the block the appearance of a polygon.[1]
This technique is found throughout the world and sometimes corresponds to the less technical category of Cyclopean masonry."

I'm not familiar with the "true polygonal masonry" designation. The point to me is that they seem impossibly large and carved to fit together so randomly that I heard they would have had to have been put in place and removed over and over again to get them shaped right. I heard that every bump is met with an opposing indentation on their touching sides.
Is there a whole wikipedia page?

Heres an interesting and comprehensive starting point. About a 10 minute read:

Remember, measure twice, cut once.

So what? You can add and subtract numbers. Well done.
And what does that have to do with masonry?

Well, that's convinced me. ::)

So what about 9 based counting? Why don't you describe what it is, what it does, and why it's interesting.

Maths is interesting. What is your point?

Not to speak for jimmy, but all you are saying is that something interests you. So, whats your point other than telling us you are interested in something? Get it?

I get it  you don't really find it too interesting! Why dont you tell me something you find interesting or tell me why this is nothing special.

Thanks Space cowgirl  I'm gonna look at that.
Their must be some crazy stuff beyond what one can imagine in the study of mathematcis.

heres a bit of a breakdown of the trick

6174 is known as Kaprekar's constant after the Indian mathematician D. R. Kaprekar. This number is notable for the following rule:
 Take any fourdigit number, using at least two different digits (leading zeros are allowed).
 Arrange the digits in descending and then in ascending order to get two fourdigit numbers, adding leading zeros if necessary.
 Subtract the smaller number from the bigger number.
 Go back to step 2 and repeat.
The above process, known as Kaprekar's routine, will always reach its fixed point, 6174, in at most 7 iterations. Once 6174 is reached, the process will continue yielding 7641 1467 = 6174. For example, choose 1495:
9541 1459 = 8082
8820 0288 = 8532
8532 2358 = 6174
7641 1467 = 6174

7641 1467 = 6174
Is the principal understood?

I may have been a little quick to call bad on some who are into this crazy math.

That is truly fascinating. Is there a mundane explanation?

589
I did the math wrong in my example, but something about it stuck out with the number i used like 598 or somethying, I will correct.
Or is 589 another example?

589 is a crypto meme, I didn't mean to confuse things.

I thinik I've heard of that.

1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9=45
1x2x3x4x5x6x7x8x9=326880
1x2x3x4x5x6x7x8x9x10x11=35956800
1089+911=1100
1x2x3x4x5x6x7x8x9x10x11x12x13x14x15x16x17x18x19x20x21x22x23x24x25=
1.551121004x10^25
pls excuse the tangent it just evokes a sense of wonder for me sometimes.

This what I have heard of 539, perhaps different than what you're talking about.
