### Sum fun ~ 09/09/09 Let's have sum fun. Yes, I really mean sum, as in the sum of the digits that result from nine multiplied by another number. Did you know it always equals nine?

9 x 1 = 9
9 x 2 = 18 ... and ... 1 + 8 = 9
9 x 3 = 27 ... and ... 2 + 7 = 9
9 x 4 = 36 ... and ... 3 + 6 = 9
9 x 5 = 45 ... and ... 4 + 5 = 9
9 x 6 = 54 ... and ... 5 + 4 = 9
9 x 7 = 63 ... and ... 6 + 3 = 9
9 x 8 = 72 ... and ... 7 + 2 = 9
9 x 9 = 81 ... and ... 8 + 1 = 9
9 x 10 = 90 ... and ... 9 + 0 = 9
9 x 11 = 99 ... and ... 9 + 9 = 18 ... and ... 1 + 8 = 9
...
9 x 34 = 306 ... and ... 3 + 0 + 6 = 9
...
9 x 715 = 6435 ... 6 + 4 + 3 + 5 = 18 ... and 1 + 8 = 9
...
9 x 1234 = 11016 ... 1 + 1 + 0 + 1 + 6 = 9

But today I'm especially having sum fun with an odd fact, that September 9 also happens to be the 252nd day of 2009.

2 + 5 + 2 = 9

Nine is sum-thing else, huh?

(I should try to post this at exactly 9:09 a.m. on 09/09/09.
Check the posting time below to see how close I could get.
Actually, I'm trying for 09:09:09, for the right second.
I got very close a year ago, on 08/08/08, here.)
