If you multiply ANY number by 9, it will come back to 9.
No other number does that as far as I'm aware.
9 x 58732 = 528588
Add 5, 2, 8, 5, 8, 8 =36
3 +6 = 9

9 x 4 = 36
3+6 = 9

9 x table, how odd is that
it don’t matter
what number x9 you add up it always adds up to 9 or multiples of nine 😳

1 x9 =9
2x9 = 18. 1+8 = 9
3x9 = 27. 2+7=9

11x9 =99 9+9=18divide by 2 =9

30x9=270. 2+7=9
31x9 =279 2+7+9=18

Etc etc

9? What's this with 9? Surely everyone knows the important number is 42
Many moons ago my minister was telling how one of his congregation would add up the digits of all hymns and psalms to be sung in that service and look to take some meaning from the answer. So at that point I did the same...and guess what they added up to. Yup - you guessed it. Now did my minister ever read H2G2? I never asked. :)

If it had been me I would have made it add up to 666 the following week just to see the look on his face.

The minister would have had to make them add up to 666 - and even if a little bit of the devil in him had him thinking of doing that he couldn't as with usually 6 hymns and psalms - and so a max of 18 digits - the sum of the digits is very, very unlikely to break 100.
