Top 10 Greatest Numbers

Numbers aren't just numbers. OK, maybe they are, but even a non-math geek can think they're pretty awesome.
The Top Ten
1 7

This number reminds me of the Triple 7 airplane by Boeing. I love this number as it resembles July, the 7th month of the year. This number also resembles nature, days of the week, and 7 is the neutral value of the pH scale. It also reminds me of the wonders of the world, the Earth's layers and its continents and there are seven skies, that is a natural number by the way!

7 is a great number! In some cultures, it means healing and good fortune. It's also rainbow and I love rainbows. 7 is also in my lucky number because my lucky number is 77.

There are seven deadly sins
There are seven days of the week
There are seven colors in the rainbow
There are seven seas
Seven is the neutral value on the pH scale
The sum of any two opposite sides of a standard die is 7, and there are seven SI base units
There are seven virtues and seven acts of mercy.
There are seven great saints (in Hinduism) and 7 chakras.
In Islam, there are 7 layers of the earth and seven skies.
There are seven continents, seven wonders of the world
There are seven pure notes on the diatonic scale, seven liberal arts

2 3

I love 3! I honestly can't believe that 7 is the top one. That is stupid and ridiculous. I don't even think of 7. It is sort of one of those numbers that you never think of. If you were going to say a completely random number then you should say 7, you shouldn't even think much about stupid 7! But, thank goodness that 2 isn't the top one, I am not even going to get started on it. Technically, 3 isn't my favourite number but my favourite/s is/are very very very very unlikely to be on this list...

This is the best number. It was the number of Babe Ruth. It is also a lucky number and a holy number of Christ along with seven, but three is used more often. Also, I a ]m one of three children and I have three cousins and it is my favorite episode of Star Wars.

How did you do this to me 3 took care of me as a child if it wasn't for 3 id be dead and you dare only put him at number two I am rating this web site one star.

3 69

Is like yin yang, perfect simple visually is pleasing sensually is an awesome position.

I wondered for a second why this number was so high- and then I remembered. Jk, I knew right away.

If you're really us. What number are we thinking of?

69 DUDE!

4 1

Metallica - "One"! The number with which you multiply a thing and you get the same thing as answer! Describes the feeling of being alone! One is the dude, because it walks alone! The first time it's you're birthday you get one years old! There is one Earth! People have one heart! What else can I say?! One rocks! M/

The first number. Of course it is deserving of place #1 on this list.

It's not classed as a prime OR composite number, it's very unique.

5 4

When I was younger, 2 was my favorite number. Later on, it became 3, eventually switching at the end to 4. I loved 2 because it signified love for me, with two partners whose love towards each other made them one. Later, I switched to 3, as there were always these main trios of best friends in movies (Harry Potter, H2O: Just Add Water) or threesomes (Twilight, Hunger Games, The Vampire Diaries, etc.). I always believed in the big trinity.

However, later on, I came to the conclusion that trilogies are so overexposed that people tend to forget about the magical 4. I think this is the number of balance and harmony: 4 seasons, 4 main day times, 4 quarters, 4 sides of the world, 4 main stages of our lives.

Here's a little trick to make you love the number four.
Think about a number. For example, let's say seventeen.
How many letters are in your number? There are nine letters in seventeen.
How many letters are in that number? There are FOUR letters in nine.
Try it with any number. It all has to be four eventually. Here's another example:
two hundred fifty one - 18 letters
eighteen - 9 letters
nine - 4 letters

All hail our lord and savior 4.

6 8

I have synesthesia, so I also associate numbers with colors. My favorite color is blue, but for some reason, I like eight which is magenta in my mind. And light blue is actually five.

You can't beat 8. It is a multiple of 1, and is the first number with a palindromic symbol.

Eight is the first number alphabetically. Zero is the last.

7 5

Five is the third prime number. Because it can be written as 221 + 1, five is classified as a Fermat prime; therefore a regular polygon with 5 sides (a regular pentagon) is constructible with compass and unmarked straightedge. 5 is the third Sophie Germain prime, the first safe prime, the third Catalan number, and the third Mersenne prime exponent. Five is the first Wilson prime and the third factorial prime, also an alternating factorial. Five is the first good prime. It is an Eisenstein prime with no imaginary part and real part of the form 3n − 1. It is also the only number that is part of more than one pair of twin primes. Five is a congruent number.

Seriously guys... 5 sucks - it gave me bad luck!
Once I saw triple 5, and then a boy kickeb me in the face!
Stupid number!

This is my number, My birthday is September 5.

8 0

Zero is a great number, it is literally a rebel. Having no value basically. Awesome.

I love you, 0. Without you, we would have to keep inventing new symbols. Plus numbers are much simpler.
This is 3902 in Roman: MMMCMII

0 is actually the most important number ever discovered. Before it, the idea of having nothing in a place value didn't exist, and numbers like 5030 would be written as 5 3. Zero is best number.

9 10

The best album ever produced! What more can I say but thank you Pearl Jam for making this a memorable number.

So many scientific principles are based on the number 10. Not to mention the metric system.

It's the big ONE-0! Probably my favorite number. And I mean, come on, it IS TheTopTens!

10 420

Why is this number so far down here? Come On Man! I know this is half the U.S. number.

It's the smallest number to be divisible by 1,2,3,4,5,6, and 7. Plus, it's true redditor material.

This number is god

The Newcomers

The Contenders
11 2

Earth has 2 poles. You have 2 legs, 2 eyes, 2 arms, 2 ears. Almost every galaxy has 2 arms and 2 poles. Physics can't go without the number 2, neither computer.

Absolutely the best number on earth, you use it everywhere.

Awesome number the best every thing I do has a 2 in it.

12 13

I don't know what most people have against 13, but it's a number that really makes you more intrigued with it's mystery. It's one of those numbers that people either love or hate, and personally, I love it!

I love thirteen and everything about it. I know people see it and 666 as unlucky, but I feel bad for it because the number before it (twelve) gets used for everything. I think we should use thirteen as a system.

For those of you who are superstitious and hate/fear this number because of 12 being the lucky number instead (probably because numerologists call it a "perfect" number), please be aware that the number 12 has played a major trick on you this whole time. 13 is innocent, and it's my favorite number other than 7.

13 12

It looks cool and is great for sports, with successful players like Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Terry Bradshaw, Jim Kelly, Roger Staubach, Ken Stabler, Randall Cunningham, Marques Colston, John Stockton, Dick Burnett, Dwight Howard, Thierry Henry, and Roy Makaay. This Number just looks awesome too.

12 is the age where I had most realizations of life, the age where I started become more mature, the age of my preteens, the age where I became more responsible, the age where most of the biggest things in my life occurred. 12 is just, how can I say this? Different from the others

What a coincidence that "12" is on 12th place (as so as "4" too in 4th place). Well 12 are both lucky and unlucky. Some good things and bad things will come so it's hard to judge that number is lucky or not. I'm not sure but number 12 is the most controversial number in my opinion

14 11

Eleven is objectively the best number. Eleven hours in the Lord of the Rings, it's two ones, fun to multiply by, looks like the roman numeral for two, it's just all around the best number and anyone who disagrees will be cast into the pit of shame :)

What's better than one 1. Two 1's. But the only problem I have with it is 9/11.

The number 11 is so tall and proud.

15 6

6 is so mathematically perfect.

It's the sum AND product of the first 3 natural numbers, it has more divisors than any previous number, and it's the perfect combo of the only consecutive primes, namely 2 and 3. Oh, and it's also a triangular number, a superior highly composite number, and it's THE first perfect number. Base 6 is one of the coolest and most useful number systems, and it's very likely that in the near future someone will find an algorithm to predict primes using base 6, due to 6's extremely high divisibility.

6 is the coolest!

Real lucky number. People say that 7 is good luck, but to me 6 is good luck

It's good because it goes in 69 and 666.

16 Pi

Nobody knows what this number is, that is what makes it cool.

We could not do basically any geometry without this number.

Not even a number, who even invited this guy?

17 21

It's a meme number ( 9+10=21) It's my birthday and Toy story 4 is coming out on June 21.

Always has been my lucky number.

This number needs to die.

18 17

I've always thought 17 was a cool number, and besides, it was my first crush's favourite number, as well as being contained in mine (172).

Yeah, 17 is the best number. 17 is my favorite number, I also think it's Halsey's...I might have to check on that but yeah 17 is the best.

I love 17 and it's multiples; 34, 51, 68 and so on. I just wish it was higher.

19 666

Let him who hath understanding recon the number of the beast, for it is a human number. It's number is 666 - Revelations 13:18

I'm an atheist, so this number means nothing. Just a way to piss religious people off

Why does satan even have a number? so people can call him to sell their soul?

20 23

Better than 24 by far

Everything is 23

21 999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999

So you're telling me when someone asks for your favorite number this is what you tell them?

What a coincidence! This is how old I am!

That's 999 quatttuordecillion, one number from one quindecillion!

22 100

Why is this not higher

23 42

From the book: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything is 42. It takes super computer Deep Thought 7½ million years to compute and check the answer, which turns out to be 42

3 persons in God, The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. 3 is a great number for that and because it is 3 and I love it a lot like I love God. So 3 is obviously the best number because it relates to God who is the greatest ever.

Answer to life, the universe, and everything.

24 25

Yesssss, it's the best number. I was born on the 25th and since then, 25 has been always my favorite number! I love it!

25 The Golden Ratio(φ)

*It is not invented, it's part of the nature*
whoever knows about this number should vote for it. I'ts not just a number, it's the value of perfection and beaty.

I had forgotten about this one before I voted.

Close to 1.618 but is irrational over half of pi
