There are six 3-digit numbers with the property that the sum of their digits is equal to the product of their digits. Today's number is the largest of these numbers.
In bases 3 to 9, the number 112 is: \(11011_3\), \(1300_4\), \(422_5\), \(304_6\), \(220_7\), \(160_8\), and \(134_9\). In bases 3, 4, 6, 8 and 9, these representations contain no digit 2.
There are two 3-digit numbers that contain no 2 in their representations in all the bases between 3 and 9 (inclusive). Today's number is the smaller of these two numbers.
Eve picks a three digit number then reverses its digits to make a second number. The second number is larger than her original number.
Eve adds her two numbers together; the result is 584. What was Eve's original number?
If you write out the numbers from 1 to 1000 (inclusive), how many times will you write the digit 1?
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.
