Weird math...

I sort of discovered patterns in math a long time ago.. where I take a number such as 21 and add the numbers in that number, so 21 is 2+1 which equals 3! If you do this with all the numbers 1-100 it creates a pattern.

-Do you think it is math or not,
-Have you discovered or learned about something like this
- do you know anyone who does this too?

I don't get it.  What's the pattern?

Yeah I don't understand what you are trying to say either. Are you trying to say something like this?

56 5+6= because that does not follow our pattern in any way?

I want to say this could be similar to Fibonacci's number sequence.

To answer your other questions, yes this is math. Everything can be reduced to math, especially patterns with numbers. :)

You should wikipedia the follow:

- Fibonacci's number
- Phi (Golden Number)

Gee Thankyou!

:)

oh and here is my pattern in full:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 1
2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 1 2
3 4 5 6 7 8 9 1 2 3
4 5 6 7 8 9 1 2 3 4
5 6 7 8 9 1 2 3 4 5
6 7 8 9 1 2 3 4 5 6
7 8 9 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
8 9 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
9 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 1

also if you do this with multiplication it's even cooler!!

Er, squidlidink, that square doesn't make sense.

But what you're trying to do is rather similar to Pascal's triangle. If you read up, you'll find it has all kinds of geometrical numeric symmetries and properties, it's really quite cool, especially when you start doing polynomial math.

Sweet! That square is kind of random, but oh well!
