Your Favorite Number!! What is your favorite number?!?! And why?? Mines...umm...one of them...probably between 0 and several trillion...I can't decide. But I'll just go with two. Why? Because thats the number of pop tarts in a pouch!
Re: Your Favorite Number!! When people ask me to pick a number between 1 and 10 I always pick pi. Does that count?
Re: Your Favorite Number!! [tex] \sqrt 7/9 [/tex] why? [tex] 6(x) * 9(x) = 42 [/tex] [tex] 54x^2=42[/tex] [tex] x^2=42/54[/tex] [tex]x^2=7/9[/tex] [tex]x= \sqrt 7/9[/tex]
Re: Your Favorite Number!! Two. It's my number for relaxation. I read someone that said in order to relax pick a number and assign relaxation to it. Then whenever you're stressed think of the number. Doesn't work. But 2 is still a cool number.
Re: Your Favorite Number!! This is a tough one. Let's see, there's: e, for obvious reasons i, since [tex]\mathbb{C}^n[/tex] is interesting [tex]\pi[/tex], for its all-around significance [tex]\varphi[/tex]; I've always liked the Golden Ratio [tex]\aleph_0[/tex] [tex]\frac{\pi^2}{6}[/tex], since it's a cool sum of [tex]\sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \frac{1}{n^2}[/tex] G, because of its gravity [tex]k_e = \frac{1}{4\pi \epsilon_0}[/tex] is rather electric 2, the only even prime the set of perfect numbers Too many...can't decide.
Re: Your Favorite Number!! I also like: Eddington's number, 15,747,724,136,275,002,577,605,653,961,181,555,468 ,044,717,914,527,116,709,366,231,425,076,185,631,0 31,296 Graham's number, g_{64} The xkcd number, A(g_{64},g_{64}), where A is the Ackermann function
Re: Your Favorite Number!! 13 is my most favorite number. I've pretty much got that one to myself. In fact I have a bunch of favorite numbers, and 13 is the smallest one. So, in addition to being my most favorite number, it is also my least favorite number.
Re: Your Favorite Number!! I like 4. Diagrammatically, it is very symmetrical. It is composed of 2 2's, which is a plus. It scales up easily with 8, 12, 16, 20, 24... When I was learning how to count, and later to appreciate and manipulate numbers, 4 was my favorite. I don't know why.
Re: Your Favorite Number!! [tex]6_{13} * 9_{13} = 42_{13}[/tex] but that is incorrect, hence [tex] \sqrt 7/9 [/tex]
Re: Your Favorite Number!! I don't really have a favorite, but I've always liked 9 for much the same reasons you like 4.
Re: Your Favorite Number!! I can't decide between mine but pi is very special to me, I also love the square root of 2.
