ParthKohli Group Title

I just discovered something which I am unable to prove. Any natural number \(n\) can be represented as a multiple of 9 + Sum of the digits of \(n\).

    For example: 9 = 0 + 9 40 = 36 + 4 + 0 120 = 117 + 2 + 0

    Do you use induction to prove?

    0 is a multiple of 9. 9 * 0 = 0

    I don't think so Parth; you can't prove that with MI, not certain though.

    sorry i lost my connection if n is a m+1 digit number \( n=(a_{m}a_{m-1}....a_{1}a_{0})=10^m a_{m}+10^{m-1} a_{m-1}+...+10a_{1}+a_{0} \) now \( n-(a_{m}+a_{m-1}+...+a_{1}+a_{0})=(10^m -1)a_{m}+(10^{m-1}-1)a_{m-1}+...+9a_{1}=9k \)

    I got a proof, finally. \( \color{Black}{\Rightarrow \bar{abc} = 100a + 10a + c }\) \( \color{Black}{\Rightarrow 99a + a + 9b + b + c}\) \( \color{Black}{\Rightarrow 9(11a + b) + (a + b + c)}\) 11a + b is a multiple of 9.
