I hope that today and always you have lots of love in your heart and that you feel so much love from others. Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

#### A Valentines Puzzle

Here is a Valentines themed mystery level puzzle from me to you:

#### Factors of 1454

- 1454 is a composite number.
- Prime factorization: 1454 = 2 × 727
- 1454 has no exponents greater than 1 in its prime factorization, so √1454 cannot be simplified.
- The exponents in the prime factorization are 1, and 1. Adding one to each exponent and multiplying we get (1 + 1)(1 + 1) = 2 × 2 = 4. Therefore 1454 has exactly 4 factors.
- The factors of 1454 are outlined with their factor pair partners in the graphic below.

#### Interesting Fact about the Number 1454:

From Stetson.edu we learn that 11+444+555+444=1454.

Apparently ‘only Smarties have the answer,’ but there’s a high probability that actually maths has the answer.

Si alguna vez experimentas este sentimiento, querrás volver a hacerlo. Aquella fue mi primera vez y, como el primer beso, fue muy especial. Entonces supe que podía llamarme matemático.

48 and 75 are ‘betrothed’ numbers, because the positive nontrivial divisors of 48 (2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24) sum to 75, and the positive nontrivial divisors of 75 (3, 5, 15, 25) sum to 48. https://t.co/Zfq2ckHWWV #ValentineMaths pic.twitter.com/qMoevWZBhj

My kindergartener made this for the 100th day of school, out of 100 perler beads. I thought it would be a real challenge but she naturally figured out how to make an almost-symmetrical design. We had some good talks about odd and even as a result. #tmwyk @_jmnoonan pic.twitter.com/zmwWxIS21y
