Title: 1089
Post by: faded mike on September 25, 2021, 02:01:21 AM
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.
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.

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]

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 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.

Post by: faded mike on October 05, 2021, 09:54:03 PM
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.

Post by: Stash on October 22, 2021, 09:01:14 AM
6174 is known as Kaprekar's constant after the Indian mathematician D. R. Kaprekar. This number is notable for the following rule:

- Take any four-digit number, using at least two different digits (leading zeros are allowed).
- Arrange the digits in descending and then in ascending order to get two four-digit 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
