# What Does +825 in Betting Mean?

The number +825 has been featured quite a bit on social media and chat forums for people looking to lose weight. It began as a trend where users would type in a weight loss goal (ex. +82 5 lazy girls) and a betting website would automatically generate a bet for them. However, as you’ll soon find out, there is more to this number than meets the eye. Below we’ll discuss what this betting symbol actually means.

## Meaning Of +825

The first thing you need to do is figure out what the “+” means. When you view a number in the “+” format it means that you have to add the value of the next digit before performing the operation. For example, the number 777 has three digits, so you would add the value of 3 to get the total value of the number 777. In this case, the total value would be 24. In the case of a one-digit number, the “+” indicates that you are to add the numerical value of the single digit after the “-” symbol. Let’s take a look at another example.

The number 123-456 has two digits, so the “+” symbol indicates that we need to add the value of the next digit (45) to get the total value. In this case, the total value would be 68 (123-456 + 45 = 68). In a similar way, the number 890123457 would be interpreted as 890 + 12 + 32 + 57 + 23 + 45 + 7 to arrive at a total value of +825.

## The Next Number: +82 5 Lazy Girls

Now that you know what the “+” symbol means, let’s look at a fun fact about the number 825. If we add up all of the numerical values of the digits in the number 825, we get 23+42+52+25 = 102. It’s easy to see that 825 = 2 x 510. If you were to write down all of the prime numbers below 100, you would end up with 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 x 5 x 7 x 11 x 13 x 17 x 19 x 23 x 29 x 31 x 37 x 41 x 43 x 47 x 53 x 59 x 61 x 67 x 71 x 73 x 79 x 83 x 89 x 97. This is the prime factorization of 825. You may view this prime factorization as a sort of prime factor tree where the trunk is represented by the number 2 and the leaves are the individual prime factors.

## The Last Number: +82 5 Lazy Girls (Repetition)

If you review the examples above, you will notice that the number 825 appears twice. This is because there is a specific ordering of operations that needs to be followed when using the “+” symbol. In the first instance above, we added the value of the next digit before performing the operation. This is why we ended up with 24 for the total value of the number 777. In the second instance, we performed the operation first and added the value of the next digit afterwards. In this case, we still ended up with 68 for the total value of the number 123-456. Let’s look at a similar example.

The number 67 has two digits, so it’s “+” symbol indicates that we need to add the value of the next digit (67) to the total value. It turns out that 67 x 99 is equal to 667 + 99, or an overall total of 866. This is why, in general, we need to add the value of the next digit before performing the operation with the “+” symbol. Now that you’re equipped with the basics of dealing with numbers, let’s move on to the fun part: making bets!

## Dealing With Decimal Points

One thing to keep in mind when dealing with decimal points is that if you want to perform multiple operations with the “+” symbol, you have to use the decimal point. For example, we could multiply both numbers (3.14 x 5.43) to arrive at a result with the decimal points. If we multiplied these numbers without using a decimal point, we would get 314 x 543 = 18564 which is not what we want. The proper way to do this is to use the decimal point and get 314.043 x 543. There are also some symbols that you can use to directly enter the result you want. Let’s look at another example.

The number 1016 has five digits, so we need to add the value of the next digit (16) to the total value of the number 1016. We can use the “+” symbol but since we already used it above to multiply by 10, we need another way to enter 16. One option is to enter the number 10 and then the number 6. This is how you would enter 16 in decimal. Alternatively, you can use the scientific notation (also known as “floating point notation”) in which case you would enter 1.6. The advantage of the scientific notation is that you can use any number of digits, meaning it’s easily re-entrant (i.e., you can use it more than once). The disadvantage is that there are no direct keyboard equivalents for scientific notation, you need to either use numeric keypads or hunt and peck on a tiny keyboard.

## More Than Meets The Eye

As stated above, the “+” symbol represents multiple operations where you have to add the value of the next digit before performing the operation. In the first example, we multiplied the number 777 (510) by 10, which is why we ended up with 870. In this example, we are simply adding 2 and 5, so the “+” symbol represents that we need to add 2 to the value of 825 (2 x 510). In a similar way, the number 890123457 (825) needs to be split into the individual digits (890 + 12 + 32 + 57 + 23 + 45 + 7) to arrive at a total value. In this case, you can see that the “+” symbol represents that you have to add 7 to the value of the number 890123457 (825 + 7 = 890 + 12 + 32 + 57 + 23 + 45 + 7 = 890 + 129 + 341 + 577 + 985 = 8882).

## Where To From Here?

At this point, you might be wondering where this is going. Do I need to perform brain surgery to learn how to bet? Not at all! To recap, we started by explaining what the “+” symbol means and how it’s used. Next, we looked at some interesting facts about the number 825. Then, we worked through an example where we multiply 2 numbers together and arrived at a result with the “+” symbol.
