1001 is the product of three consecutive prime numbers:

7 × 11 × 13 = 1001

1001 is also the sum of fifteen consecutive prime numbers:

37 + 41 + 43 + 47 + 53 + 59 + 61 + 67 + 71 + 73 + 79 + 83 + 89 + 97 + 101 = 1001

1001 is the 26th pentagonal number.

1001 is the hypotenuse of a Pythagorean triple:

385² + 924² = 1001²

1001 is a palindrome in base 10 and in base 25:

It’s 1F1 in BASE 25 (F is 15 base 10) because 1(625) + 15(25) + 1(1) = 1001

- 1001 is a composite number.
- Prime factorization: 1001 = 7 × 11 × 13
- The exponents in the prime factorization are 1, 1, and 1. Adding one to each and multiplying we get (1 + 1)(1 + 1)(1 + 1) = 2 × 2 × 2 = 8. Therefore 1001 has exactly 8 factors.
- Factors of 1001: 1, 7, 11, 13, 77, 91, 143, 1001
- Factor pairs: 1001 = 1 × 1001, 7 × 143, 11 × 91, or 13 × 77
- 1001 has no square factors that allow its square root to be simplified. √1001 ≈ 31.63858
