Re: Add 99 more and post it forever.Yes...eg, 15741, 42372, 99990. In fact, that approach (which is formula 5 below) gives only 81 solutions out of 909 possibles, while the other formulas give more.

Re: Add 99 more and post it forever.What's wrong with M's command? The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #687 20131008 11:24:17

Re: Add 99 more and post it forever.Hi Bobby,
I made 'DigitRoot' up. Do you know of a command that will do what I want?
