Calculating a lucky number for Bowman

So the numbers for each letter of Bowman are:


First we add the digits of all the letters: 2+7+6+4+1+5 = 25

Which is still more than one digit
so we add the digits of 25: 2+5 = 7

Which gives Bowman a lucky number of seven!

Calculating two digit lucky numbers for Bowman

The two digit lucky numbers for Bowman are those two digit numbers which when their digits are summed to give a single digit, give the lucky number (seven) for the name.

Mathematically, this turns out to be the set of numbers less than 100 of the form L + 9n (where L is the lucky number and n is a natural number).

Algorithmically, this is:

for ( int i = luckynum + 9; i < 100; i += 9 )

  print( i );

Which, for Bowman gives us: 16 25 34 43 52 61 70 79 88 97!
