Let me tell you some things about the number 1011 that you probably didn’t know before:

The only nonzero digits in 1011 are three 1’s so 1011 is divisible by 3, and 1011 is included in this interesting pattern:

1011² = **10**22**1**2**1**; Notice that the digits in bold are 1011 and all the other digits are 2’s. Thank you OEIS.org for that fun fact.

1011 looks interesting in a few other bases:

It’s 33303 in BASE 4 because 3(4⁴ + 4³ + 4² + 4⁰) = 3(256 + 64 + 16 + 1) = 3(337) = 1011,

323 in BASE 18 because 3(18²) + 2(18) + 3(1) = 1011

1011 is the hypotenuse of a Pythagorean triple:

525-864-1011 which is **3** times (175-288-**337**)

- 1011 is a composite number.
- Prime factorization: 1011 = 3 × 337
- The exponents in the prime factorization are 1 and 1. Adding one to each and multiplying we get (1 + 1)(1 + 1) = 2 × 2 = 4. Therefore 1011 has exactly 4 factors.
- Factors of 1011: 1, 3, 337, 1011
- Factor pairs: 1011 = 1 × 1011 or 3 × 337
- 1011 has no square factors that allow its square root to be simplified. √1011 ≈ 31.7962

I didn’t know any of those facts, and I don’t know what 2018 will bring, but I hope that you and your family and your blog will go from strength to strength.

Hear, hear!

Thank you for your support. I especially wish the very best in 2018 to both of you and yours as well.
