There is a rumor going around that mathematicians and math teachers are really pirates. They think we all want to find "x" so we will know where the buried treasure is. I am pretty sure this is not true.
HEY! I HAVE A SECOND WEBSITE THAT I JUST STARTED!
There is a number on the web that is very popular - 998,001.
Why? Because the decimal expansion of 1/998001 counts from zero to 997 without making an error.
When I first saw this I thought it was a hoax. But I did the math and it checks out - it's legit!
Then I thought to myself:"If there is one number that has this property there have got to be more!"
Well, I have found numbers that can multiply, do powers, calculate combinatorial functions, and even do the Fibonacci Sequence and other Fibonacci like sequences. I even have Sequence numbers that can count way higher than 997.
Check out the site! And be sure to start with the oldest posts which explain more about these numbers I call Sequence Numbers.
P.S. I will keep this blog going too! But I thought Sequence Numbers deserved its own blog.
(Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.)
