832 is the maximum number of pieces a torus can be cut into with 16 cuts.

How awesome is that!?

Nothing interesting

1225 is a hexagonal square triangular number.

Our team number can be displayed on a digital clock though.

“1726: Wiki webpart targeting deleted container == bad news”

I don’t think I like that…

4 is the smallest number of colors sufficient to color all planar maps.

pretty cool…

**228** is the sum of 10 (yes, TEN!) consecutive Prime Numbers.

7 + 11 + 13 + 17 + 19 + 23 + 29 + 31 + 37 + 41 = 228

For those of you who spend a lot of time calculating in base 7, 228 is the repdigit (**rep**eated **digit**) 444.

And, I always make sure to have my afternoon snack at GUS Time, 2:28pm.

857 is a value of n for which φ(n) = φ(n-1) + φ(n-2).

… and I have no idea what that means.

57 is apparently 111 in base 7. So maybe some year will run around impersonating Wildstang. Also, true story, one of our departed mentors wanted us to be sponsored by Heinz. Of Heinz 57 sauce fame. He suggested we could change our name to “The Flying Pickles”. Most of the rest of the team was unimpressed.

191 is a number n for which n, n+2, n+6, and n+8 are all prime.

59 is the number of stellations of an icosahedron.

Oh yea icosahedrons, sure.

45 x 45 = 2025, 20 + 25 = **45**

45 x 45 x 45 = 91125, 9 + 11 + 25 = **45**

45 x 45 x 45 x 45 = 4100625, 4 + 10 + 6 + 25 = **45**

79

a permutable prime

the 22nd prime number

a Kynea number

a Pillai prime

the smallest number that can’t be represented as a sum of fewer than 19 fourth powers

a strictly non-palindromic number

can be Partitioned 40 times with each term no larger than 2

can be Partitioned 560 times with each term no larger than 3

79 is a Centered 13-gonal Number

79 is a Centered 26-gonal Number

is the maximal number of regions into which 12 lines divide a plane

(as a Messier object) a globular cluster in the Milky Way

(as a year, CE) Pompeii was buried by the eruption of Vesuvius

(as an element) **GOLD!!!**

Alan, why do I get the feeling that you calculated all those permutations of 45 yourself?

When we were painting our numbers on our Robot we only had to cut 2 numbers out instead of 3 or 4. (Beat that!) 2226

33^2 = 1089

Add two numbers together and always end with 1089 for a result

Here’s how:

- Pick a three digit number. The three numbers used must be different. i.e. 123
- Reverse that number. 123 becomes 321
- Take the smallest three digit number from the largest. 321 - 123 = 198
- Take the answer and reverse that number. 198 becomes 891
- Add that number to the answer of the subtraction. 891 + 198 = 1089

125 is a cube…5^3 = 125

48 is the number of Jimmie Johnson’s car. We pwn all of NASCAR.

It’s also the only integer between 47 and 49. We’re special like that.

:rolleyes:

1827 is a VAMPIRE NUMBER…whatever that is
