# The Magic Of 1089

Take a 3 digit number. Let’s say: 375. Reverse it. The reverse of 375 is 573. Find the difference (Larger number – Smaller number). 573 – 375 = 198. Now reverse this. The reverse of 198 is 891. Add these numbers. That is 198 + 891. The sum is 1089.

Fine, you might have noticed anything special here. Right? How about starting with a different 3 digit number? What do you get at the end?
