Why is 5105105105105100 a MC ? Its invalid based on the algorithm : 25%10 is not equal TO ZERO SO WHY ITS LISTED AS mASTERCARD ?

4111111111111111 is listed as VISA. But 27%10 is not equal to ZERO so it should invalid and not a VISA.

Either I misunderstood the algorithm or these paypal sample are wrongly listing some of these credit card numbers as valid. PLEASE HELP !

Take the number, and starting from the right, double every second digit. If the double has two digits, add them, creating an odd digit. Now add those resulting digits. Makes 20 and 30 for your Mastercard and VISA examples.
