have a loop...oops! look.

Dear Readers,

I am deeply honoured (:D) to present, "Hershal's First
Mathematical Conjecture "
:


On a number pad,,,,,0 to 9,

You may start by pressing any two numbers
first....(may be
the same number twice).... e.g. 24 & e.g. 49

and go according to the algorithm(steps) given
below:

1.) add the two numbers pressed/ e.g. 2+4 & e.g. 4+9
2.) press the resulting number(s)/ e.g. 6 & e.g. 13
3.) add the two numbers last pressed/ e.g. 6+4 & e.g. 1+3
4.) press the resulting number(s)/ e.g. 10 & e.g. 4

5.) go to step 3

Conjectures:

I)

You'll eventually be pressing some specific numbers in a
specific sequence again and again....i.e. you are stuck in an infinite
loop.

II)

The loop will be 11,2,3,5,8,13,4,7,11 for all the numbers except for following nine
numbers:
14, 77, 26, 42, 68, 86, 45, 59, 95, for which the loop will be 14,5,9,14


Please note: I've been utmost humble in representing this great conjecture of mine which has a potential of winning Nobel Prize. I hope you will not violate the copyright.

....thinking why did i post this? firstly, i m hershal (though i spell it differently) and secondly, "just like that!"
