    Challenge! Day to Day 234

    This turned out to be a surprisingly tough one ... However, at least something surprising: There are 234 ways five children out of six can form a ring around another child if you allow them to turn around and change place. That's quite a lot of options ... Now imagine how many there have to be...

    A warning: This is K-Pop - my first real encounter. Worth a heads-up (i.e. maybe a warning) ... Say what you want (I certainly am *no* fan of stuff like this), production quality is impressive. M.

    Challenge! Day to Day 231

    Fun fact (for us boring Europeans): There are 231 cubic inches to a gallon (U.S.) - intuitive, simple, straightforward :) I also find those two as informative as they are somewhat creepy ... M.

    Challenge! Day to Day 223

    A little math trivia for starters: 223 is prime, but lives in a so-called "sea" of composite numbers: The next smaller prime is 211 (an impressive twelve units smaller), the next bigger prime is 227. 223 is special in that it is the smallest prime that lives within such a vast sea of non-primes...

    Take it as it was conceived (with lots of tongue in at least four cheeks): And here's a more palatable version of the general idea: Most people are more familiar with version "4" ... but "1" appeared alongside "9" on the iconic White Album (I own the original vinyl ...). M.

    410 years ago, Galilei first observed Jupiter's four biggest moons (which are since called the "Galilean" ones). And because Phil Plait does a great job at explaining things further, here's his take on Jupiter's moons. M.
