J + U + L + I + A
= 1 + 3 +3 + 9  + 1
= 17
= 1 + 7
= 8
 Julia Newman’s active number is 8.
2. Calculation of the heredity number using the last name:
N + E +W + M + A + N
= 5 + 5 + 5 + 4 + 1 + 5
= 25
= 2 + 5
= 7
Julia Newman’s heredity number is 7.
3. Calculation of the expression number from the full name:
J + U + L + I + A + N + E +W + M + A + N
= Active Number + Heredity Number
= 8 + 7
= 15
