123456789 x 18 = 2,222,222,202 not 222,222,222. Again, still (9) 2's, but also a zero in the 10x place.
If you multiply... 12345678 x 9, you get 111,111,102 (note: we left out the '9') and if you multiply... 12345678 x 18, you get 222,222,204 (again, leaving out the '9'') In both cases, the result is a (7) count of the divisor, with a '0' in the 10x spot and a multiple of the divisor as a last digit. (wow, strange) Same for 27.. 12345678 x 27 = 333,333,306 The interesting part here is, as the multiple increases, so does the digit after the zero '0', by a factor of 2.
