What’s Special About This Number?

Numbers are Interesting, ALWAYS 😀

A number is an abstract entity that represents a count or measurement. A symbol for a number is called a numeral.

See Wikipedia for details, but wait

Teenage start from 13 and 13 known as lucky, unlucky, or significant number – in many cultures thirteen is regarded as an unlucky number! Unreasoned fear of the number 13 is termed triskaidekaphobia. There are lots of Hotel, Place where there no ’13th’ floor or room, house, or even road! Not only 13, all numbers has some unique and interesting meanings…

Do you know about Fibonacci Number? I guess the answer is ‘Yes’!

A scrambled version 13, 3, 2, 21, 1, 1, 8, 5 (Sloane’s A117540) of the first eight Fibonacci numbers appear as one of the clues left by murdered museum curator Jacque Saunière in D. Brown’s novel The Da Vinci Code (Brown 2003, pp. 43, 60-61, and 189-192). In the Season 1 episode "Sabotage" (2005) of the television crime drama NUMB3RS, math genius Charlie Eppes mentions that the Fibonacci numbers are found in the structure of crystals and the spiral of galaxies and a nautilus shell.

There is lots of thing to know about numbers, leave them now, what’s special about a (particular) number? look at bellow…
