Magical Number Nine (9) On Math Monday

Wow, It is Monday.  I decide to make Mondays Math Monday!

I miss Math, let’s discover the magic in number nine (9).

As you do “Times Table By 9” , you may notice that the digits always add up to “9”…

Let’s check it out:

1*9=9  –>0+9=9

2*9=18  –>1+8=9

3*9=27  –>2+7=9

4*9=36  –>3+6=9

5*9=45  –>4+5=9

6*9=54  –>5+4=9

7*9=63  –>6+3=9

8*9=72  –>7+2=9

9*9=81  –>8+1=9

10*9=90  –>9+0=9

Isn’t this number game FUN?

Does it work for larger numbers? You may wonder.

Yes, this works for any number multiples 9….

Say: 11*9=99  –>9+9=18  –>1+8=9

100*9=900  –>9+0+0=9

211*9=1899  –>1+8+9+9=27  –>2+7=9

1005*9=9045  –>9+0+4+5=18  –>1=8=9

42001*9=378,009  –>3+7+8+0+0+9=27  –>2+7=9

Amazing math facts! :).  I hope that YOU have FUN learning and discovering the magical number nine (9) on Math Monday.

  1. I was taught this as a way to check the accuracy of my answers to multiples of 9. Also, if you hold up your hands with all your fingers outspread and facing away form you, and then fold the finger of the number you are multiplying nine by, you get the answer. So, for 4 X 9, you fold down the 4th finger, and there are 3 fingers up on the left of it, and 6 on the right – 4 X 9 = 36. Works for the 9’s all the way through to 10.

  2. Teacher: What is 1 + 9?
    Bananaz: 1 + 9 son of bitch is 9
    Teacher: No!No!No! it’s 1 + 9 sum of which is 9
    Bananaz: Oops!:p

    Cool. I love ‘9’, my fav number. TQ for the magical number nine.

  6. The magical number 9 has a musical connotation, too! An interval is the space between any two notes, and when one reorders two notes [flipping them upside down] it’s called an inversion. So every interval, when inverted has its opposite. To figure out an interval’s opposite, subtract it from 9 [for intervals less than an octave].

    9-1= 8; 1st and 8ve are opposites
    9-2= 7; 2nds and 7ths are opposites
    9-3= 6; 3rds and 6ths are opposites
    9-4= 5; 4ths and 5ths are opposites


    Was that too much music nerdology?

    1. never too much, Sparrowsong. 🙂

      You have No idea how happy I am to read your collective ideas about number 9 and its musical connotation.

      I loved your entry soooooooo much and hope that everyone else read it and get musical about magical number 9.

      Cool Contribution!
      🙂 🙂 🙂
