Did You know these 10 Curious Facts About Mathematics?
Mathematics is everything. Fundamental science, complex, diverse and simply fascinating. You like mathematics or not, you can not deny these affirmations. But today we are not going to talk about the importance of this science, today I want to invite you to join me in this brief and simple journey in which I will tell you 10 curious facts about mathematics that you may not have known and probably will surprise you. Let’s start!
- Bring chewing gum to your next math test
As it has been observed globally, those students who chew gum during a test or a math test are those who get better grades. This was determined by a long study developed by a group of researchers from Louisiana State University.
- The ancient Babylonians, mathematical geniuses
The ancient Babylonians, true geniuses in mathematics, developed their mathematical studies in base 60 instead of base 10. For this reason, one minute has 60 seconds and a circle has 360 °.
- Capicua multiplication
1089 x 9 = 9801
If you have a pizza with a radius Z and a height A, its volume will be: PI * Z * Z * A.
- 2520 and its perfect division
2520 is the smallest number that can be divided exactly by the numbers from 1 to 10.
- 100! 100?
123 – 45 – 67 + 89 = 100.
123 + 4 – 5 + 67 – 89 = 100.
123 – 4 – 5 – 6 – 7 + 8 – 9 = 100.
1 + 23 – 4 + 5 + 6 + 78 – 9 = 100.
- How to tie a tie?
According to mathematicians, there are a total of 177,147 different ways to tie a loop.
- The paradox of the birthday gift
In mathematics there is a very curious paradox called “the paradox of the birthday gift”. It says that at a birthday party with 23 guests, there is a 50% chance that at least 2 people will arrive with the same gift.
- Very much knowledge in mathematics
By the year 1900, all the scientific knowledge of humanity could be saved in a total of 80 books. Nowadays, mathematics has been developed much more and with the new contributions, 100,000 books would be needed for the same task.
111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678.987,654,321 = Wow!
