3-6-12 – a good day!

For all you numerologists out there – take advantage of this great day, numerologically speaking.

We don’t know what it means for you, but three is a very important number for us. (Number of our children, number of our siblings, number of siblings-in-law, among other things.) And multiplying three by two is really meaningful. Arriving at six, then multiplying by two again (!) we get to 12 – one of the coolest numbers of all.

It is, after all, divisible by 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12. How many two-digit numbers do you know that have six (!) divisors which result in an integer? Okay, other multiples of 12 – 24, 36, etc. do that, and add divisors each time they increase.

But still. These numbers don’t occur in this order often (or ever again in our lifetime) in a calendar date, do they? (Unless you go Euro- and write the date as 3rd June ’12.) Eventually by this magical multiplication method, you get to 360. Number of degrees in a circle and on a map or globe. Almost the number of days in a year. It just goes on and on.

Quiz for today: how many divisors (with integers for answers) does 360 have?

So, Happy 3-6-12! The last time you’ll see this, this year.
