#37: What’s so special about that number?

Why is 2 important?  It’s the only even prime number!
What’s so special about 1323?  It’s an Achilles number!
What about 1975?  Well it’s the year I was born! 😉

For this Math Minute post, explore this site and find out why different numbers are special.  If you’re like me, you’ll only understand a few of them.  For the ones you don’t understand, click on the link or do a Google search.  Many of the links on the site take you to Wolfram Alpha which is a great resource, but I sometimes like to watch videos to explain things.  For example, the link for the number 5 takes you to a page where you can read about the Platonic Solids, but when I searched it on Google, I found this video (https://youtu.be/gVzu1_12FUc) which explained things a little further.

What special number(s) did you discover?  Post a comment below.
