Fibonacci numbers can be viewed as a particular case of the Fibonacci polynomials Fibonacci numbers are implemented in the Wolfram Language as Fibonacci[n]. The Fibonacci numbers are also a Lucas sequence , and are companions to the Lucas numbers (which satisfy the same recurrence equation).

But as we are about to see, anyone who can subtract can uncover the mystery that makes 6174 so special. Kaprekar's operation In 1949 the mathematician D. It is a simple operation, but Kaprekar discovered it led to a surprising result. When we reach 6174 the operation repeats itself, returning 6174 every time. We reached 6174 again! A very mysterious number... When we started with 2005 the process reached 6174 in seven steps, and for 1789 in three steps. Only 6174? The digits of any four digit number can be arranged into a maximum number by putting the digits in descending order, and a minimum number by putting them in ascending order. 9 ≥ a ≥ b ≥ c ≥ d ≥ 0 and a, b, c, d are not all the same digit, the maximum number is abcd and the minimum is dcba. which gives the relations for those numbers where a>b>c>d. For three digit numbers the same phenomenon occurs. and

Nick's Mathematical Puzzles Welcome to my selection of mathematical puzzles. What's new? See puzzle 160. The math puzzles presented here are selected for the deceptive simplicity of their statement, or the elegance of their solution. They range over geometry, probability, number theory, algebra, calculus, trigonometry, and logic. Explaining how an answer is arrived at is more important than the answer itself. Each puzzle is assigned a level of difficulty of between one and four stars, with four being the most difficult. The source for each problem is given at the bottom of the solution page. I welcome feedback of any kind. Some brief biographical information. Nick Back to top
