How to get the number 4 in numerology

Numbers that produce 4

In numerology, the number 4 is obtained by adding the digits of a number or a word until you get a single digit equal to 4. Here is how to get a number 4 in numerology:

If you have a number between 10 and 99, you can get a number 4 by adding its digits together. For example, for the number 49, you add 4 + 9 = 13. And 13 = 1 + 3 = 4.

If you have a number greater than 99, you can get a number 4 by repeating the operation until you get a single digit. For example, for the number 571, you add 5 + 7 + 1 = 13, then 1 + 3 = 4. For the number 1237, you add 1 + 2 + 3 + 7 = 13, then 1 + 3 = 4.

If you have a word, you can get a number 4 by adding the numbers corresponding to each letter of this word, according to the correspondence of the letters of the alphabet with the numbers of numerology.

For example, for the word "mentor" you add 4 (m) + 5 (e) + 5 (n) + 2 (t) + 6 (o) + 9 (r) = 31, then 3 + 1 = 4. The numerical reduction of the word "mentor" is therefore 4.

In summary, to obtain a number 4 in numerology (see table opposite), there are 3 possibilities, or "source numbers": 13, 22 and 40.
