###### 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:

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.
