Adding up numbers on number plates (Insanity #413)

<- Previous Next ->
Title: Adding up numbers on number plates
Description: I like to add up numbers on number plates until I am left with a single number, for example:

F456 4GE - 4+5+6+4=19
9+1=10
1+0=1

I then get a strange happy feeling when they add up to one of the original numbers in the number plate. The above didn't make me feel happy unfortunately :(

I do something similar but I use multiplication, hoping for the product to get as low as possible without reaching zero.  In your example:

F456 4GE :  4*5*6*4=480
4*8*0=0
Final Score 480 = BAD

I also like to assign the letters an numberic value.  (A=1, B=2...Z=26)
F456 6GE:
6*4*5*6*4*7*5=100800
Obviously this = 0 next time...
VERY BAD PLATE

413:

4*1*3=12
1*2=2!!!
VERY GOOD

INSANITY 413:

9*14*19*1*14*9*20*25*4*1*3 = 4379424000
Next line = 0...damn
