Ha. All roads lead to 9. This would infuriate the HuffPo crowd.

LOL, that's pretty funny.

I'm sure someone can explain it better, but the series of operations guarantee that you will end up with a result in which the individual digits add up to 9.

Watched “American Gangster” this weekend (Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe). Excellent movie. IMHO

Interesting.
Before I'd read the "movie list" I was wondering how they knew my fav. was "North By Northwest".

I’m thinking Obama is really truly an American Gangster. And the sequel to American Gangster is.....

The Defeat of Obama in 2012

I'm sure someone can explain it better, but the series of operations guarantee that you will end up with a result in which the individual digits add up to 9

Highlight for the secrets of how this works.

1. Pick a number from 1-9.

The set of possible numbers is {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}

2. Multiply by 3.

The set of possible numbers is {3,6,9,12,15,18,21,24,27}

3. Add 3.

The set of possible numbers is {6,9,12,15,18,21,24,27,30}

4. Multiply by 3 again.

The set of possible numbers is {18,27,36,45,54,63,72,81,90}

Now add the two digits together to find your predicted favorite movie in the list of 18 movies below.

All of the possible results follow the formula 9x+9, so they are all multiples of 9. The sum of the digits of any multiples of 9 are also multiples of 9.

It’s called finding the “digital root”. If you multiply by 9, then the resultant number will be divisible by 9. Or, equivalently, the digital root will be 9.

If you don’t find that sort of thing fascinating by high school or earlier, you’ll probably won’t be a math major. If not, maybe physicist or engineer.

Nope.
Came out with 6. Shoulda been 15.

Besides, Twelve O’Clock High wasn’t on the list. Possibly the best war movie ever made. Certainly the best on leadership in wartime.

Since this is a vanity, let me digress. When I was single, I had this neighbor who claimed he had a "sure-fire math trick" trick to impress a girl.

First, he would have the mark, er girl, pick a 3-digit number. Then have her reverse the digits. Subtract the small number from the larger. Now, have her take that number and reverse the digits. Finally, she was to add these last two numbers together. He said he could then predict the answer and what she was thinking.

So, Mr. Lothario had previously written the answer on the napkin which was "1089", and, of course, the answer to the second question, which I will leave to your imagination.

However, Mr. Lothario didn't realize that the trick failed if the girl picked a number with the same first and last digit (also, it could fail if the mark couldn't add or subtract, which was a distinct possibly, since it was in CA). Well, sure enough, the mark picks a number like 555. I realized his goose was cooked, and started laughing.

Ah, geek humor at its worst...

1. Pick a number from 1-9.
2. Multiply by 3.
3. Add 3.
4. Multiply by 3 again.

1, 2, 3 amount to

  1. Pick a number from 2-10
  2. Multiply by 3

Adding on #4 amounts to:

  1. Pick a number from 2-10
  2. Multiply by 3
  3. Multiply by 3

Or:

  1. Pick a number from 2-10
  2. Multiply by 9

Which amounts to :

  1. Pick a multiple of 9, from 18 - 90

It's a well-known fact that any multiple of 9 has digits whose sum adds up to a multiple of 9.
