## PANA (PATTI)

Pana’s, also called Patti, Panel, Panna; are 3 digit numbers from 000 – 999.

Note : All triple digit numbers are not pana’s. There are 1000 triple digit numbers but only 220 of them are called Pana’s.

Pana’s are always in increasing format (ascending order) 123 is pana but 231 / 132 / 213 / 312 are not pana’s. Out of 1000 possible triple digit numbers, if you arrange them in ascending order, you get only 220 unique numbers. Hence 220 Pana’s.

For example, numbers 123, 132, 213, 231, 312, 321, when arranged in ascending order, produce same number ie. 123.

Each Pana is permanently attributed to its Single based on the sum of its three digits.

How to know which Single a Pana belongs to?

+ Sum the three digits of Pana

? If sum of the three digits of a pana is less than 10, the exact sum is considered as its single.

**Ex.** 123 ( 1+2+3 ) = 0{6}

The last digit of total is its single

In this case, 123 belongs to Single 6.

**Ex.** 134 ( 1+3+4 ) = 0{8}

In this case, 134 belongs to Single 8.

? If the sum of three digits of a Pana is more than 9, the last digit of the sum is considered its Single.

**Ex.** 689 (6+8+9) =2{3}

In this case 689 belongs to Single 3.
