rotate

practice in subtracting two, 3-digit numbers
form a three digit number with the last two digits summing to the first
e.g. 615
rotate the digits one place (front goes to the back) and subtract
i.e. 615 - 156
which is 459
divide the result by 9 (it always will)

what pattern do you notice in the result?
try to explain this pattern
