Amazing facts in Mathematics

The opposite sides of a 🎲 dice 🎲 will always give a sum of seven

31,556,926 seconds makes one year

From 0 through 1000, the only number that has the letter 'a' in it is 'one thousand'


The division symbol '÷' is actually called an obelus

Four is the only number in the English language that is spelt with the same number of letters as the number (4) itself

40 is spelt as FORTY and not FOURTY. It is the only number that is spelt with letters arranged in alphabetical order 🙄

An odd number is a number that cannot be divisible by 2.

Every odd number has an 'e' in its spelling. They include:

  • One
  • Three
  • Five
  • Seven
  • Nine

555 in Thailand should sound like 'hahaha'. This is because the word '5' means 'ha' in Thailand

10! Actually means 10 factorial in mathematics. Below is its calculation:

10! = 10 x 9 x 8 x 7 x 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 3628800

3628800 seconds is the same as 42 days

42 days is the same as 6 weeks

We can therefore say that 10! equals 6 weeks or 3628800 seconds in mathematics

When you multiply 111,111,111 by 111,111,111; the result equals 12,345,678,987,654,321


Sides of a right angle triangle - Len Academy


The image above shows a right angled triangle. The angle of the above right triangle is denoted as θ


Hypotenuse is always the longest side of the triangle.

Opposite is the side opposite the angle (θ)

Adjacent is the shorter side next to the angle (θ)

Each of Sin θ, cos θ and tan θ are the ratio of sides of the right triangle. They are calculated by using the formula (margic word) sohcahtoa:

Sohcahtoa - Len Academy


Sin θ = Opposite/Hypotenuse


Cos θ = Adjacent/Hypotenuse


Tan θ = Opposite/Adjacent
