# 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.*1*

**7**

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

I associate number with colors and 7 is my favorite number of all time. I'll say 7 represent as color gold or "rainbow". I also listed other numbers too:

1 = Black

2 = Yellow

3 = Midnight Blue

4 = Red/Burgundy

5 = Light Green/Light Blue

6 = Indigo

7 = Gold/Rainbow/Celestial Gold-White

8 = Purple/Red-&-Black

9 = Gray/Aqua Green

0 = Clear

Seven is my fave number,! I really can't believe it. When I will open this page, I hoped top 1 is number 7. And it happened, gosh thanks god! Why do I love this number? Easy. My name is 7 letters, middle name 7 letters, last name 7 letters! Really thanks TheTopTens

If you people see in football, the great Ronaldo's Jersey number is 7.. And if we take a look at cricket, the captain cool MS Dhoni's Jersey number is also 7. Want any more reasons for why seven is the great number?

*2*

**3**

I hate 3, this is the death number, I hate all numbers with 3 in it, death always comes with numbers that have the 3 in it like Friday the 13th, etc.. It also looks like it will eat you, so get rid of this number

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!

Jokes with this number were funny...

At 4th grade

*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.

Very satisfying number. It has a leadership feel to it.

*5*

**4**

Four was my childhood favourite number because it was Gordon's number on Thomas the Tank Engine. I was also born in 2004 when my mother was 40.

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:

251

two hundred fifty one - 18 letters

eighteen - 9 letters

nine - 4 letters

All hail our lord and savior 4.

It's the best even number by far. it is the 2nd even number past 0, the first non-prime number, the first even non-prime number, it is a multiple of every even multiple of 10 (20, 40, 60, 80, 100, etc), only number in English equal to the number of letters in it's name, and its one of the only numbers that is equal to both the sum and product of two numbers

When I was younger 2 was my favourite numer, later on 3, eventually switching at the end to 4. I loved 2 cause it was a signification of love for me (2 partners whose love towards each other making them 1). 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 big trinity. However, later on I came to conclusio that trilogies are so overexposed that people tend to forget about magical 4. I think this is the number of a balanse and harmony: 4 seasons, 4 main day times, 4 quarters, 4 sides of the world, 4 main stages of our lifes <birth with childhood, teenage years with early adulthood, old age and death). In addition to it, very often, almost always 4th parts of movies, music albums or games are my favourite ones (Alien: Resurrection, Harry Potter and Goblet of Fire, 4th movie from Twilight, game Resident Evil 4, 4th albums of ...more

**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.

If you turn it sideways, it's infinity. NOTHING beets infinity, and nothing beets 8

*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.

How can 5 be number 11? It should be number 2

*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.

Zero the hero! That rhymes

*9*

**10**

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

10 is the year you become a tween. A lot of things happen when you are 10. How is 7 always number 1? Every place I looked 7 was number 1. 7 must be EVERYBODY IN THE WORLDS favorite number. Why number 10 is 13? That is easy to answer because 7 is ALWAYS number 1!

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

Thank you Pearl Jam for the best album ever invented: Ten.

*10*

**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.

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

I ejaculate to the #2

My lucky number

*11*

**13**

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.

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.

13 is considered to be the unlucky Number, but in reality, its one of the numbers that will revolutionize the world.

*12*

**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

I love to 420 blaze it

*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

I disagree. This number ruined my life horribly. I don't see number 12 as a best or luckiest number and I don't know why this number is so high in this list.

*14*

**11**

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.

What is better than two ones?

Reminds me of 11:11, make a wish!

*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.

6 is the BEST number. It is a very lucky number for me. When I was 6 years old, my bus number was 6 and we lived on the 16th floor. And 16 has a 6 in it! BEST NUMBER EVER!

*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?

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

*17*

**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.

The number 17 is so tall and intelligent.

*18*

**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?

I don't even like any number that goes over twenty.

*19*

**23**

Better than 24 by far

Everything is 23

*20*

**100**

Why is this not higher

*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!

This is a quindecillion minus one.

*22*

**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.

This number haunting me

*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.

Jackie Robinson. What more can I say?

Who put in the number of the beast?

*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*

**99**
