I was going to say that about n;
it is not the same as casting out:
the digits always add, at least in base ten
-- he didn't elaborate --
to a multiple of three; so that
you can tell if the number is a multiple ... so,
I guess, you could "cast out some threes
to get 0, 1 or 2 (of course,
you can stop at 12, 60, 62 etc.
