 Recognitions: Gold Member That's not quite what I was looking for. I'm looking for a property that is unique to this number, or that this number is the first to accomplish.

Its the lowest number divisible by 1-20
 Recognitions: Gold Member Yep, that's correct. How did you get to that answer?
 Its the answer to question number 5 on Project Euler. so i had solved for it before.

Odd. You ask for the thinking process that goes into an answer, but then reject processes that don't lead to the answer you like.

How much can one learn if one only accepts answers one expects?

 Quote by Jarle 232+560=792
Maybe I am a glass half empty person. I saw it as 792-232=560.

It's the lowest number divisible by 1-21 and by 1-22 as well.
 This might be quirky but it is how I first thought about it 232,792,560 2+3+2 =7 7+9+2=18 --> 1+8=9 5+6+0=11 --> 1+1=2 which when assembled is 792 I like to add.

 Recognitions: Homework Help It's a really big number. That seems pretty special to me.
