Windows 7: Spooky Halloween prime number

Spooky Halloween prime number

I came across this weird prime number in the UK press today (31 Oct).


it's the number of the beast '666' with 13 zero's each side (13 considered unlucky) and a 1 - known to math dudes as Belphegor's Prime. Not only is it a prime number (divisible only by itself and 1) but it's also palindromic (reads the same backwards + forwards).

Belphegor's Prime - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Belphegor's Prime: 1000000000000066600000000000001!

I guess it was mentioned 'cos it's Halloween today, and they were looking for a 'spooky' slant.

Happy Halloween !

Hiyya Jed I read here Number of the beast - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that 666 is the mark of the beast if you believe in that stuff and that in Hebrew the translation form the Greek is 616

That is of course if you believe in that sort of stuff
