## A Multiplication Based Logic Puzzle

### 67 and How to get more blog followers

67 is a prime number. 67 = 1 x 67. Its only factors are 1 and 67. Prime factorization: none.

How do we know that 67 is a prime number? The square root of 67 is an irrational number approximately equal to 8.19. If 67 were not a prime number, then it would be divisible by at least one prime number less than or equal to 8.19. Since 67 is not divisible by 2, 3, 5, or 7, it is a prime number.

67 is never a clue in the FIND THE FACTORS puzzles.

1. I’m quite interested, not just for self-serving reasons, in the way social groups form and grow, especially in what it takes to hit that point where the growth becomes appreciably large. I think having a commenting community is an important part of it, but then, building that commenting community is just another part of drawing readers.

• I don’t think there is any “point” at which anything new happens. It’s just good old-fashioned exponential growth. The more followers a blog has, the more likes and shares it will get and the more comments. The more this happens, the faster the community will grow.
