Among the first 1 million numbers, 40 is a number that is pretty unique.
Can you find out why ?

40=1+3+9+27?? Or how about -40 degree being the unique temperature at which Celsius and Fahrenheit scales correspond? :P

no then 1+2+4+8=15, so it could also be unique, there are n numbers, which follow the above pattern, and there are also other degrees of temp. between 1 and a million like water boils at 100 deg Celsius etc to be unique, so why among 1 to a million 40 can be unique by your statement......But well done for giving knowledge about 40.
Ohh...but -40 degree is the only temperature at which celcius and farenheit become equal ....right?
hey you are right, but it firstly is -40 not 40 k by this logic any one can cross question you why 40 only why not any other number at some other respect...as simplest one there are only 60 seconds in a minute so 60 must be unique among 1 and a million, think about something logically not scientifically ........
The answer is only 40 is the number when written alphabetically then have ordered alphabets as forty
What? Didnt get you
The number 40 (Forty) is the only number which when written in English has all the letters in the same order as in the alphabets.
the letters f-o-r-t-y being in alphabetical sequence.
