Here are a few facts about the number 1067:

  • 1067 is a composite number.
  • Prime factorization: 1067 = 11 × 97
  • 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 1067 has exactly 4 factors.
  • Factors of 1067: 1, 11, 97, 1067
  • Factor pairs: 1067 = 1 × 1067 or 11 × 97
  • 1067 has no square factors that allow its square root to be simplified. √1067 ≈ 32.66497

1067 is the hypotenuse of a Pythagorean triple:
715-792-1067 which is 11 times (65-72-97)
We can use the 11 divisibility trick on all the numbers in that triple:
7 – 1 + 5 = 11
7 – 9 + 2 = 0
1 – 0 + 6 – 7 = 0
to see that all of them can indeed be evenly divided by 11.

1067 is palindrome 1F1 in BASE 26 (F is 15 base 10) because 26² + 15(26) + 1 = 1067
