In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

### Re: Add 99 more and post it forever.

Hi,

There's been some derailing happening here, beginning in post #479 (that seems to have been influenced by #478) - where the answer was 1 less than a multiple of 99 - followed by the interesting goings-on from posts #526 to #531 that was the start of all subsequent answers being 1 greater than a multiple of 99.

60687 corrects that.

Also, if we want to align with the '13' thread where the number of entries = the number of posts, then we need to do some catch-up:

60786
60885
60984

6+0+9+84=99
