So...I have a problem. No wait, I don't have a problem...I have a question/problem, a...nevermind.
A math problem of sorts...because that's what everyone wants to do on a Monday, right?! :) *ahem* Anyway... (and actually I wrote this on Sunday, when I wasn't tired) I do know the answer to this, I'm just throwing a math problem out there, so you all don't get lazy over the summer...kidding! ;)
Can anyone explain why my age and my mom's age add and always will add up the same number? If you add the digits in my age (1+8) and hers (4+5) they both equal nine...and they will always do that. If you add them until there's only one digit they will always be the same. e.g.: (2+0=2) and (4+7=11; 1+1=2)
Amazing isn't it? I knew it worked right now, but I thought at some point they wouldn't add up, so when we were talking about it Sunday morning and going through the numbers, I think I went wandering around for quite a while going "Wow... Wow! Crazy!" until I realized I needed to be getting ready for church. :p
(Note: she gave me permission to put her age on here, she doesn't mind)
Anyway...now that you all have headaches, you can think about it...and if any of you did Abeka math (and other math programs too possibly) you might remember learning something that would give you a clue as to how this works.
I'll post the answer sometime later this week...although I warn you that the answer is more of a complicated concept than a set answer (at least as far I'm capable of explaining it) so hopefully it'll make sense! :p And won't I look stupid if one of you can explain it all in one or two sentences... (Uncle Jim....you know everything, right? Maybe I'll get one concise sentence of explanation from you?) ;)
