24-S by R o g e r


1960s fashionSince I’m in my sixties, I thought I’d note the signifance of those numbers:

60 – a composite number, with divisors 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 30, and 60, making it a highly composite number. 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour. 60 Minutes is a very successful news program.

61– the number of home runs Roger Maris of the New York Yankees hit in 1961 to break Babe Ruth’s record

62– in the US, you can collect Social Security at age 62. But, perhaps you shouldn’t

63 – the atomic number of the element europium

64– the square of 8, the cube of 4, and the sixth power of 2. WILL you still need me?

65– the smallest integer that can be expressed as a sum of two distinct positive squares in two ways, 65 = 8 squared + 1 squared = 7 squared + 4 squared.

66 – the total number of chapters in the Bible book of Isaiah. The total number of books in the Protestant edition of the Bible. My current age

67 – the sum of five consecutive primes (7 + 11 + 13 + 17 + 19)

68 – the largest known number to be the sum of two primes in exactly two different ways: 68 = 7 + 61 = 31 + 37

69 – a wager amount NOT allowed on the American quiz show JEOPARDY!

Why don’t you visit six of your swinging colleagues on ABC Wednesday?
