Whenever the number of posts on a vent page make it cumbersome to navigate, a new vent page is started. This is number THIRTY FOUR in our series and we're still going strong!
Of course we could also recognize the number 34 which was proudly worn by Georgia's Hershel Walker during his college career and by NFL Stars Earl Campbell and Walter Payton! Some of the great.
Of less interest perhaps is the fact that
34 is the ninth distinct semi prime and has four divisors including unity and itself. Its neighbors, 33 and 35, also are distinct semiprimes, having four divisors each, and 34 is the smallest number to be surrounded by numbers with the same number of divisors as it has. It is also in the first cluster of three distinct semiprimes, being within 33, 34, 35; the next such cluster of semiprimes is 85, 86, 87.
It is the ninth Fibonnici number and a companion Pell number. . Since it is an odd-indexed Fibonacci number, 34 is a Markinof number appearing in solutions with other Fibonacci numbers, such as (1, 13, 34), (1, 34, 89), etc.
Isn't that interesting?
