(In reply to re: Do i err ?? by Charlie)

My question was figurative and rhetoric .

There is clearly no need to check values bigger  than 9 and expect
that a miracle will happen - the left size of the equation is getting smaller,  the right side is a constant ...  "and never the twain shall meet,"

I rated this puzzle 1 - do I err?
