MEMI Constants: Number system constants
Posted: Aug 25, 2000 11:36 AM

We know different number systems. But how many of us know about the
constants associated about the different number systems. I will give
some examples,
example 1: if you divide the sum of any two digit number and its
reverse by the sum of the two digits comprising the number, then the
result is always 11 in decimal system. So irrespective of the 2-digit
number you choose, the result will always be 11, So 11 is costant of
operation of the above process. There are a lot of such constants for
every number system. These constants are known as MEMI constants.
