is 3 hyperfactorial. can be written as the sum of a cube and a square (*a*^{3} + *b*^{2}) in two ways (3^{3} + 9^{2} and 2^{3} + 10^{2}). This is the smallest number with this property. Every angle of a pentagon measures 108°. There are 108 different types of heptominoes.
= 36 x 3 = 27 x 4 = 0^{0} x 1^{1} x 2^{2} x 3^{3} = 3^{3} + 3^{3} + 3^{3} + 3^{3} = 6^{2} + 6^{2} + 6^{2} = 12 x **9** and 1 + 0 + 8 = **9** = 8 + 9 + 10 + 11 + 12 + 13 + 14 + 15 + 16 = 3^{2} + 5^{2} + 5^{2} + 7^{2} (sum of square primes) = 8 + 15 + 29 + 56 (sum of consecutive Tetranacci numbers)
