A mathematical investigation is defined as a collection of worthwhile problem-solving tasks that has multi-dimensional content, is an open-minded, permitting several acceptable solutions and is often embedded in a focus question. In addition, a mathematical investigation involves a number of processes, which includes ---- researching outside sources to gather information, collecting data through such means as surveying, observing or measuring, collaborating with each team member taking specific jobs and using multiple strategies for researching solutions and conclusions.

It is also a quantity by which a given quantity is multiplied or divided in order to indicate a difference in measurement.Factoring are any of the numbers or symbols in mathematics that when multiplied together form a product or a number or symbol that divides another number or symbol.Our investigation is to express the multiples of nine. in which it aims to show the possible values that could be divisible by nine. There are some topics on our investigation related to math. . One of these topics is factoring.

the observation attempted to provide answers to the following questions: Consider the digits in the multiples of nine written in order.II. -How does each unit digits compare with one before it. .What happens with the tens and the hundreds of digit. . More specifically. Statement of the Problem : The observation of the multiples of nine.

What other possibilities are there? . consider as 3+16+8 or 31+68) 3.What happens when the digits are needed? . -What happens if combinations of the digits are added? (For 3168. -Try some large numbers (eg. .) Consider the rearranging the orders of the digits in the multiples of nine. 3168) as well as small goes. -Look for a use for what you have observed.Consider the sums of the digits in the multiples of nine.

Testing/verifying conjecture #1 This Conjecture #1 is applicable to the big numbers that are higher than 9. For example: 26. 26. .8.847. 27 which is a perfect number.6.847= 2+6+8+4+7=27 27÷9=3 As given iin the example given. Conjectures Conjecture #1 A number is a multiple of 9 if the sum of the digit is divisible by nine. We added 2.4and 7 to get the sum.III.

Now single digits are not applicaple to this conjecture for example 1. And we divided 27 by 9 so we get 3.5. We know that 27 is a multiple of 9 because when we count.847” 36 So as shown in the figure above 27is a multiple of 9. Since the quotient is a whole number it is a multiple of 9. Since they are single digit there is no other numbers or digits that can be added to them.2.3..7 and 8. .6.4.Perfect numbers are numbers that are equal to the sum of their proper factors. 9 18 27 The sum of the given example “26.

27. While in the ones place it is decreasing by 1 like 9.7. .54.4.36.8.7.3.90.5.81.72.4.99 -For the tens digit it started from 0.1. Testing/verifying conjecture #2 9.5.2.45.3.6.6.1.63.18.2.9 and it is increasing by 1.8.Conjecture #2 The tens digit increases by 1 while the ones digit decrease by 1.

Conjecture#3 The reverseof the given digit but still have a multiple of 9. Testing/Verifying Conjecture#3 Example: -317 x 9 = 2853 is a multiple of 9 which is equal to 317. -For 3168. The sum are still multiple of . consider as 3+16+8 or 31+68. When you reverse 2853 to 3582 the result is still a multiple of 9 which is 398.

The other possibilities is when you rearrange the digit. Example: 1107= 9 x 123 7011= 9 x 779 1701= 9 x 189 0117= 9 x 13 7101= 9 x 7 . it is still the multiple of 9.

Then then count by 9. 2 is a whole number so 18 is a multiple of 9.IV. 9 18 ---. 1 is added to 7 and we get the sum of 18.. 18 is divided by 9 and we get the answer 2.The sum of the given example “17” 27 So as shown in the figure above 17 is a multiple of . 17 has the digits 1 and 7. 17=1+7=18 18÷9=2 As shown. Justifying Conjectures Conjecture #1 A number is a multiple of 9 if the sum of the digit is divisible by nine.

5.3.3.5. While in the ones place it is decreasing by 1 like 9.2.9 and it is increasing by 1.144.6.2. Example: 1107= 9 x 123 1701= 9 x 189 7101= 9 x 789 7011= 9 x 779 0117= 9 x 13 1701= 9 x 189 .7.153.135.207.126. 8.171.198. For three digit multiple of 9. The other possibilities is when you rearrange the digit.8. Conjecture#3 The reverseof the given digit but still have a multiple of 9. ones unit digit are all the same number.189.4. it is still the multiple of 9.21 6.162.6.180.7.225 -For the tens digit it started from 0.Conjecture #2 The tens digit increases by 1 while the ones digit decrease by 1.1. 108.117.1.4.
