Not Roman numerals
The letters \(I\), \(V\) and \(X\) each represent a different digit from 1 to 9. If$$VI\times X=VVV,$$
what are \(I\), \(V\) and \(X\)?
In base 2, 1/24 is 0.0000101010101010101010101010...
In base 3, 1/24 is 0.0010101010101010101010101010...
In base 4, 1/24 is 0.0022222222222222222222222222...
In base 5, 1/24 is 0.0101010101010101010101010101...
In base 6, 1/24 is 0.013.
Therefore base 6 is the lowest base in which 1/24 has a finite number of digits.
Today's number is the smallest base in which 1/10890 has a finite number of digits.
Note: 1/24 always represents 1 divided by twenty-four (ie the 24 is written in decimal).
Today's number is smallest three digit palindrome whose digits are all non-zero, and that is not divisible by any of its digits.
Today's number is the number of numbers between 10 and 1,000 that contain no 0, 1, 2 or 3.
Today's number is the number of 0s that 611! (611×610×...×2×1) ends in.

How many positive two-digit numbers are there whose square and cube both end in the same digit?
Ted thinks of a three-digit number. He removes one of its digits to make a two-digit number.
Ted notices that his three-digit number is exactly 37 times his two-digit number. What was Ted's three-digit number?
