# ATTITUDE: A mathematical formula for excellence

Attitude

MATHEMATICS IS INTERESTING, EVEN BEAUTIFUL.

The Beauty of Math!

1 x 8 + 1 = 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123 x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 = 98765
123456 x 8 +6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432
123456789 x 8 + 9 = 987654321

1 x 9 + 2 = 11
12 x 9 + 3 = 111
123 x 9 + 4 = 1111
1234 x 9 + 5 = 11111
12345 x 9 + 6 = 111111
123456 x 9 + 7 = 1111111
1234567 x 9 + 8 = 11111111
12345678 x 9 + 9 = 111111111
123456789 x 9 +10= 1111111111

9 x 9 + 7 = 88
98 x 9 + 6 = 888
987 x 9 + 5 =8888
9876 x 9 + 4 = 88888
98765 x 9 + 3 = 88888
987654 x 9 + 2 = 888888
9876543 x 9 + 1 = 8888888
98765432 x 9 + 0 =88888888

Brilliant, isn't it?

And look at this symmetry:

1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111= 123456789 87654321

Now, take a look at this...From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:

What Equals 100%?
What does it mean to do your best, your very best: 100%?

who say they are giving more than 100%?
We have all been in situations in which someone wants you
to study harder, work harder, make a bigger effort.
They expect 100% and more:
more time, more energy, more dedication.

What equals 100%?
Here's a little mathematical formula
that might help answer these questions:
If:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

If:
H-A--R--D--W-O- R- K

8+1+18+4 +23+ 15+18+11 = 98%

And:

K-N-O-W-L-E- D-G-E
11+14+15+23+ 12+5+4+7+ 5 = 96%

Then:

A-T-T-I-T-U- D-E

1+20+20+ 9+20+ 21+4+5 = 100%
One can conclude with mathematical certainty that:

While Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, it’s ATTITUDE that gets the job done well, and makes you excel.

It´s really interesting Wendy...but unfortunately I don´t like Maths that much :(
