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 Baidehi Chattopadhyay · 2 years, 8 months ago

@Baidehi Chattopadhyay 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.

@Yashasvini Sharma Ohh...but -40 degree is the only temperature at which celcius and farenheit become equal ....right? Baidehi Chattopadhyay · 2 years, 8 months ago

@Baidehi Chattopadhyay 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 ........

@Baidehi Chattopadhyay 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. Yashasvini Sharma · 2 years, 8 months ago
