Here is a **C**omplicated but fascinating number fact from Wikipedia that involves **134** on BOTH sides of the equation:

Notice that each term has an 8 sub-scripted on the left side of the C and either **1**,** 3**, or **4** sub-scripted on the right side of the C. If you do all the division, multiplication and addition, you will discover that **₈**C**₁** + **₈**C**₃** + **₈**C**₄ **= 8 + 56 + 70 = **134**.
