Top 10 Best 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, which is a natural number by the way!

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 am one of three children and I have three cousins and it is my favorite episode of Star Wars.

3 69

It's like yin and yang, perfectly simple, visually pleasing, and sensually, it's 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 the answer! Describes the feeling of being alone! One is the dude, because it walks alone! The first time it's your birthday, you get one year old! There is one Earth! People have one heart! What else can I say?! One rocks!

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.

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
2^{2^1} + 1, five is classified as a Fermat prime. Therefore, a regular polygon with 5 sides (a regular pentagon) is constructible with a compass and unmarked straightedge. Five 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 a 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.

8 0

Zero is a great number. It is literally a rebel. Having no value is 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 53. Zero is the 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.

The Contenders
11 2

The only prime number that is even! A perfect example of how we can be unique and not idiots at the same time :) Also I just love the number 2, it's so fun to look at and say

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 can computers.

One is uninteresting. Two creates conflict. Two creates duality. Two creates a capacity for growth and change.

12 13

I don't know what most people have against 13, but it's a number that really makes you more intrigued with its 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 or 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 to 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.

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

Six is so mathematically perfect.

It's the sum AND product of the first three natural numbers. It has more divisors than any previous number, and it's the perfect combination 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. It's very likely that in the near future, someone will find an algorithm to predict primes using base 6, due to its extremely high divisibility.

Six is the coolest!

16 Pi

Nobody knows what this number is. That is what makes it cool.

We could not do basically any geometry without this number.

How can you not love pi? 64 is also a good number.

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.

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 its multiples: 34, 51, 68, and so on. I just wish it was higher.

19 666

Let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the beast, for it is a human number. Its number is 666 - Revelations 13:18

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

Why does Satan even have a number? So people can call him to sell their soul?

20 100
21 23
22 999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999

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 quattuordecillion, one number away from one quindecillion!

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 the supercomputer Deep Thought 7½ million years to compute and check the answer, which turns out to be 42.

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

Answer to life, the universe, and everything.

24 25

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

25 The Golden Ratio(φ)

*It is not invented, it's part of nature.*

Whoever knows about this number should vote for it. It's not just a number, it's the value of perfection and beauty.

I had forgotten about this one before I voted.

Close to 1.618 but is irrational, over half of pi.
