# Can someone explain?

Why is $$123, 456, 789 \times 9 = 1, 111, 111, 111$$?

Is there any special reason?

Note that the equation you typed is wrong. Instead, what we have is

$123, 345, 79 \times 9 = 111, 111, 111.$

(After accounting for possible arithmetic errors) There is a pattern involved here, so there might be a "special reason".

I elaborated further in this note.
