All 11 Slides of this is most helpful! Mahalo! I figured there was some logic with 10 + a number = the total number, but could not make sense of the number added to 10; now I know why! The FIRST letter of the number added to the 10 is dropped!! This fact and the slide on kūma explain the logic in forming the numbers. (I only wish that you didn't have to have a LinkedIn account to access these slides, off this link provided by you, RonRGB.)
