The supersticious one might add the numbers this way 1+3+0+9, and 1+9+1+2, and in both cases find the sum of 13.(the well known "Unlucky" number). How many combinations of four digits (0-9) will be "13" when added one by one ,and what´s the easiest , and most correct, way to calcuate this. Thanks for any answer.
