  2. Mathematics – Nine is the highest single-digit number in the decimal system.
    1. In base 10 a positive number is divisible by nine if and only if its digital root is 9.[9] That is, if you multiply nine by any natural number, and repeatedly add the digits of the answer until it is just one digit, you will end up with nine:

                                         i.    2 × 9 = 18 (1 + 8 = 9)

                                       ii.    3 × 9 = 27 (2 + 7 = 9)

                                      iii.    9 × 9 = 81 (8 + 1 = 9)

                                      iv.    121 × 9 = 1089 (1 + 0 + 8 + 9 = 18; 1 + 8 = 9)

                                        v.    234 × 9 = 2106 (2 + 1 + 0 + 6 = 9)

                                      vi.    578329 × 9 = 5204961 (5 + 2 + 0 + 4 + 9 + 6 + 1 = 27; 2 + 7 = 9)

                                    vii.    482729235601 × 9 = 4344563120409 (4 + 3 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 3 + 1 + 2 + 0 + 4 + 0 + 9 = 45; 4 + 5 = 9)

There are other interesting patterns involving multiples of nine:

                                   viii.    12345679 x 9 = 111111111

                                      ix.    12345679 x 18 = 222222222
