other random number facts he end of the Universe via Big Freeze without proton decay is subject to be 10^10^76 years into the future, which is short of googolplex.

Yesterday i heard somebody saying that the number **500.000.000.000** looks awfully much like a locomotive pulling carriages.

I don’t have any randoms facts about numbers but this site can provide you will as many random numbers as you will probably ever need. It’s as close as I could get to an actual answer.

According to the Jargon File, 17 is the least random number.

According to the Internal Revenue Service, 000, is not a legitimate number and is not recognized by them. so, if you go to local IRS office and present a Social Security card that has all zeros on it, chances are you might be arrested.

Putting 7, 8, and 9 together. Also putting 8, 0, 0, 8, and 5 in an calculator.

that all the numbers are afraid of 7… because 7, 8, 9

A stupidly easy way to multiply by 9 is to hold your hands up in front of you and, for instance, 3×7…you hold down your 3rd finger and you have your answer: the two fingers on the right are the first number (2) and the fingers to right are the second number (7). It works right up to 9×9.

although you may look a little stupid holding your fingers up in front of you like that

Tranquil, I look stupid when I’m doing math in my head….

According to a rough count of my own, the “details” section of your question contains at least eight grammatical errors.

**e^(πi) + 1 = 0**

This equation, called Euler’s identity, relates the five most important numbers in mathematics: **e** (the base of the natural logarithms), **π** (the ration of circle’s circumference to its diameter), *i* (the square root of -1), **1**, and **0** (which are obviously important).

It also uses the three basic arithmatic operations (addition, multiplication, and exponentiation).

Pi is 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937

Starting at the beginning:

31 is prime

41 is prime

59 is prime

@filmfann surprisingly i have never heard that before that is great

I once heard a mnemonic for remembering the first 7 places in pi:

“How I want a drink, alcoholic of course.”

The number of letters in each word is the number… they taught we this in elementary school strangely enough.

The sole pair of adjacent positive integers that are both integer powers are 8 and 9—8 = 2^3 and 9 = 3^2.

The decimal equivalent of 1/7 is .142857142857….

The decimal equivalents of the other x/7 fractions can be found in the digits of .142857.

E.g., 2/7=.285714…, 3/7=.428571…, 4/7=.571428…, etc.

**7** In Irish folklore, a seventh son of a seventh son is believed to have magic powers, but in Portuguese legends he is a werewolf. In Iran, a cat is said to have seven lives, not nine.

**328** Three digit #‘s are very popular in China, as the number three stands for liveliness. The number 328 sounds like “business will prosper when spoken, and business owners will happily pay extra to have these digits in their phone number.

**4233** This was an unlucky # in ancient Egyptian culture. The hieroglyphs that represented 4233 can also look like the are showing a young pharaoh being murdered.

**42** In Japanese, when a 4 and 2 are pronounced together, it sounds like “going to death” and so the number is avoided at all costs.

**4** The fear of the number four in many Asian countries is comparable to the fear of 13 in the West.

@ETpro It’s not the actual number I think. It’s just how it is pronounced, because it sounds like “going to death”. I don’t think anything is wrong with the actual number 42.

I’m not sure if this true or not but the first number to have an **a** in it is **one thousand**. I’m to lazy to check but I think this is true. Of course I would notice.

The only numeral in which all the letter appear alphabetically when spelled out is 40.

there are only three letters that never appear in any number. what are they?

yeah i didnt count zero because it is the absence of numbers but yes j, k and z it si a fun one though

i got this from the book “number freak” by Derick Niederman it has many more goofy facts about the numbers 1 – 200
