# Sum Of Digits Are Just Fun

Suddenly I noticed a common property of any number while solving a problem like what is the sum of digits of the product of 61s 3 that means 33333.........3333 and 62s 6 means 666......6666.For 3 and 6, as 6 is twice of 3, the sum of digits of their product follow a specific rule.

After solving the problem , i thought that , Does every number contains this property ? So I tried to find the sequence for 2 and 4 also. As 4 and 8 are twice of 2 and 4 , so i considered the products of any certain number of 2 suppose n , and n+1 numbers of 4. Then i took product of the numbers and then calculated the sum of digits of the number combined with 2 and 4 like 22444 and then calculate the sum of digits of the product of two numbers 22 and 444 . Then i calculated Sum Of Digits(Products)- Sum Of Digits(Numbers) . And i saw that the result follow a rule . Just see the image bellow to understand what I've done :

Please notice the series carefully. If you subtract 1st term from 2nd term then you'll get 8. By the same process the difference of every 2 term till 10th term are 8, 6, 4, 2, 0, -2,- 4, 12 and 1. Then this repeats again and again till infinity. So , It's clear that there is a strong logic behind this sequence.

Now for the number 4, I did same process again . And at first see the image :

Now notice that after 20th term the Sum Of Digits(Numbers) - Sum Of Digits(Products) follows a sequence. it is : -7 -7 -7 -7 2 -7 -7 -7 -7 2 -7 -7 -7 -7 2 -7 -7 -7 -7 2 And the mod of Sum Of Digits(Numbers)% Sum Of Digits(Products) follow a specific rule after 20th term : 64 66 68 70 2 65 67 69 71 2 66 68 70 72 2 67 69 71 73 2

You can try it for any other numbers too. Thanks for reading this. You can download my Microsoft Excel files from my website MathMad.

Can you explain why this pattern exists?

What is the math behind it? How would we find the sum of digits of this product?

I don't know why this types of pattern exists ? But i found different logic for different numbers. If you know , please explain in details. I want to know more about this. But i believe that patterns and numbers are everywhere. I worked for a thesis paper last year and their i also found a pattern . I don't know about any specific reason behind it.
