      Hi pumpi76,

      here's an example:

      number 924
      Sum = 9 + 2 + 4 = 15
      LDR (or shortsum) = 5 (<-- from 15)
      Root = 1 + 5 = 6

      number 216
      Sum = 2 + 1 = 6 = 9
      LDR = 9
      Root = 9

      cheers
      Ricky

        Hello Ricky, you might confuse this person. I believe you meant:

        2 + 1 + 6 = 9

          Ricky actually explained it pretty wellYes Nod

          If 216 is your number, the sum is 9 ( 2+1+6= 9 )

          A "root" is the sum of the individual digits that make up a sum.Any sum under 10 is a single digit sum,  so if the sum of 216 is 9, the root of 216 will be the same exact number as the sum 9.In the case of any single digit sum, the sum is always the same as the root.

          Using this as only an example lets say your number is 654 ( 6+5+4= 15 )so the sum of 654 is 15.

          15 is NOT a single diigt sum it containts two digits, the one and the five.Therefore the root of 654 will not be the same as it's sum of 15 you'll have to add the one and the five in 15 to get your root and when you do that you get a 6 and thats how you figure out the root of 654 is 6.

          The root is the number you get when you add the 1 and 5 in {15} together{ 1+5=6 },

          so the root of 654 is 6.If a series of sum 15 numbers appear(such as 708, 555, 429, 357)  within weeks or days apart it could be a signal that a sum 6 number will soon follow up since the root of 15 is 6.using this method you can find different numbers to play that have sums that add up to six such as 321, 303, 060, 510, 222, 420 etc, and ANY number that adds up to 6.

                The Term: Root Sum :Has been explained many times in the past, so a search of Lottery Post with the Search Function will reveal the definition of the Term!
