# Step 1 : Calculate the compound Number of your Name.

Before learning the calculation of compound number, let us have a quick look over the difference between single numbers (1-9) and compound Numbers (10-onwards)

The single numbers denote what the man or woman appears to be in the eyes of their fellow mortals, while the double or compound numbers show the hidden influences that play their role behind the scenes as it were, and in some mysterious way often foreshadow the future or the hidden current of destiny of the individual

Now let us learn to calculate compound numbers.

Every alphabet in English language has been assigned an occult number as follows:

 A = 1 N = 5 B = 2 O = 7 C = 3 P = 8 D = 4 Q = 1 E = 5 R = 2 F = 8 S = 3 G = 3 T = 4 H = 5 U = 6 I or J = 1 V = 6 K = 2 W = 6 L = 3 X = 5 M = 4 Y = 1 Z = 7

It may be seen that there is no number 9 given in the above alphabet, for the simple reason that those ancient masters of Occultism knew that in the” Highest Sphere” the number 9 represents the 9-lettered name of God, and for this reason no single letter was ascribed to it.

If, however, the letters in a name should total up and produce the number 9, the meaning of it is that given as I set out in the chapter dealing with the number 9, and for the compound numbers of the 9 such as the 18, 27, etc.

The next important question to answer is the following: Are all the Christian and Surnames to be added together to find the last digit or number?

The answer to that is, that it is the most used Christian and Surname that must be added together to give the Key number; when the Surname is more used or more in evidence than the Christian name, then it is taken to give the Key number.

Let us calculate the compound number of one name as example:

If the name is JOHN SMITH , then it’s compound number will be calculated as follows:

 J = 1 S =  3 O = 7 M = 4 H = 5 I   =  1 N = 5 T  =  4 ______ 18 = 9 ______ H  =  5 ______17 = 8 _______

So the compound number of John Smith will be 9 + 8 = 17. You can easily calculate the compound number of your name this way :

Now let us learn about the influence of compound numbers of name on a person. That is let’s move to our second step : Influence of compound Number on our life.
