# Letters and numbers - How to calculate the cross sum

For example turn letters from your full name to find your destiny number:1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 |

a | b | c | d | e | f | g | h | i |

j | k | l | m | n | o | p | q | r |

s | t | u | v | w | x | y | z |

**Example:**

- A person with the name Holly Grace Snyder would find their Destiny Number by calculating first Holly (8 + 6 + 3 + 3 + 7 = 27), reducing that to a single-digit number (2 + 7 = 9)
- Then you calculate Grace (7 + 9 + 1 + 3 + 5 = 25), reducing that to a single-digit number (2 + 5 = 7)
- Then you calculate Snyder (1 + 5 + 7 + 4 + 5 + 9 = 31), reducing that to a single-digit number (3 + 1 = 4)
- Then you add the three single-digit numbers together (9 + 7 + 4 = 20), and reduce that to a single-digit number (2 + 0 = 2)

**Holly Grace Snyder would therefore have a destiny number of 2**
