1982235230
Step 1: Double the value of the alternate digits, beginning with the rightmost digit.
29162431026
Step 2: Add all the doubled and unaffected individual digits from step 1 plus the constant number 24.
2 + 9 + 1 + 6 + 2 + 4 + 3 + 1 + 0 + 2 + 6 + 24 = 60
Step 3: because the number obtained in step 2 ends in zero, the check digit is zero.
0
