# A Doubling Dilemma

Here is one of the misleading sequences in mathematics. I have given the first few numbers of the sequence, and your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to guess the next number.

1, 2, 4, 8, 16, ….?

Did you get 32 from the doubling stuff ?

The answer is actually 31! Yes, you read that correctly. 31.

# Mysterious Prime Series

Here are few amazing prime numbers, but it discontinues when eights 3’s are joined before 1 :

31
331
3331
33331
333331
3333331
33333331

The next number 333333331 is not a prime number. Where it is multiplied by 17 x 19607843 = 333333331.

The real mystery lies within 30, 300, 3000, 30000, etc…. or with 3*(10^n).
When these numbers are added to primes 1, 31, 331, 3331, etc… respectively it always results in a prime , however this tradition discontinues with 333333331.

# The Golden Nugget : -1/12

This topic is pretty astounding , and here I will prove that :
1+2+3+4…. = -1/12
Here are the details to prove it unanimously ….

# One minus One plus One minus One…. = ???

The title seems to be foolish, obviously no one knows the answer to this question because no one can actuate the last number of infinity, it’s endless…

It is sometimes called Grandi’s series, after Italian mathematician, philosopher, and priest Guido Grandi.

# 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 + 1/16… = 1

This series was used as a representation of one of Zeno’s paradoxes( More On This Later ). The parts of the Eye of Horus were once thought to represent the first six summands of the series.

This fact is fantastic and again , it will show us the relation between infinite and Real numbers. Representation of 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 + 1/16 ...

# 89 & The Fibonacci

There is a stunning, strange and
wonderful connection between Fibonacci and the number 89.

The Fibonacci Series is encoded in the number 1/89 . Here’s how :

1/89 = 0.01 + 0.001 + 0.0002 + 0.00003 + 0.000005 + 0.0000008 + 0.00000013 + 0.000000021 + 0.0000000034 etc.

You would have obviously noticed that 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34…. are all the Fibonacci Numbers.  Isn’t that amazing?
