I was playing with a calculator about 20 years ago and found something interesting, and I still can't figure it out. Here goes... If you go start diagonally at any corner of the 3x3 1-9 square and enter the three numbers, press + and enter the numbers in reverse, you get 1,110 ex. 753+357=1,110, 951+159=1,110 and across the middle is 654+456=1,110 top and bottom 987+123=1,110. Did I just crack the code to the secret of life? I knew it was not 42! I am sure that there is a simple explanation for this that I may have slept through in math class and I'm no Rocket Surgeon, but does anyone know why this happens? Any input, even smart remarks will be appreciated.

Using my proven formula of pi 3.14 x the length of snookis hair,12 inches, x the number of yodels in a box ,i think 10,equals the total sum of congruent parts,divided by the root number of my toenails,you should arrive at the correct number of supercalifragilisticexpealidocious.

I also think that the answer to this question will also answer the other mind bottling question for the ages...... If a chicken and a half laid an egg and a half in an hour and a half, how long would it take a monkey with a wooden leg to kick the seeds out of a dill pickle?
