The beauty in numbers?

I just wanted to post something I noticed the other night with numbers. I did a search and didn't find something like this on ATS so I just wanted to see what everyone thought.

ok.. 3:15

That is the time I woke up a few mornings ago for some reason. I looked over and that was the time. So I laid back down to go to sleep. But of course with my crazy mind, I noticed something with the numbers. Ever since I was a kid I had a love of numbers the way they work and how beautiful they are. So this is what just popped into my head while trying to go back to sleep.

If you take the 3 and add it to the 15 you get 18. So 3+15=18, then add the 1+8 to bring it down to 1 . Which is 9.

Ok now take all the numbers in the time and add them up as well. You get 3+1+5 which equals 9. WHAT!!

ok so I did this for a little while with every number I could think of.

11:30 11+30=41 4+1=5 then 1+1+3+0=5 ahahaha
2:45 2+45=47 4+7=11 1+1=2 then 2+4+5=11 1+1=2

so then I went to bigger numbers instead of time. example

2365:135 2365+135=2500 2+5=7, then 2+3+6+5+1+3+5=25 2+5=7

so how cool is that. It just shows the beauty of it.

That also made me think of another more talked about one: This one has been used in jokes etc... because it always comes back to one answer. If you take any number from 1-9 and multiply it by 9 and then take the answer and add them together then it always come back to 9. Pretty cool.

2X9=18 1+8=9
3X9=27 2+7=9 and so on

So I took this and decided to see what other numbers work out to.

Ok so based on the above example I take 8. I multiply 8 by 1,2,3,4,5,6 etc.. and notice something cool. If you add those answers up they count down. So let's see 8,16,24,32,40,48,56,64,72,80. ok lets add those up=8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 then it starts back at 9,8,7 etc...9 through 1.

Wow let's try another . 5 ok so 5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55,60,65,70 if we add those we get 5,1,6,2,7,3,8,4,9,5,1,6,2,7 that is a repeating pattern of 5,1,6,2,7,3,8,4,9 forever. Ok lets break it down similar to Fibonacci. Let's add the number 5 to the next 1=6. Then take 1+6=7. Then take 6+2=8. Then take 2+7=9 and so on. Pretty cool stuff.

Let's try 6. 6,12,18,24,30,36,42,49. Add them up we get a repeating pattern of 6,3,9,6,3,9,6,3,9 forever.

Let's try 7. 7,14,21,28,35,42,49,56. We get a repeating patter of 7,5,3,1,8,6,4,2,9 which repeats itself forever. This one seems cool because every if you subtract 2 is the next . So 7-2=5,5-2,3 etc... all the way until it turns over again from 9-2=7.

Let's try the ones I have missed.
2: 2,4,6,8,1,3,5,7,9 repeating pattern forever this time adding 2 to each one
3: 3,6,9,3,6,9,3,6,9 repeating
4: 4,8,3,7,2,6,1,5,9 repeating and if you add 4 to the number and subtract 5 from the next it runs that pattern forever.

Another thing I have noticed is that the 9 seems to always start the repeat of the pattern.

Let me know your thoughts..
