Fifty-seven is the sixteenth discrete bi-prime and the sixth in the (3.q) family. With 58 it forms the fourth discrete bi-prime pair. 57 has an aliquot sum of 23 and is the first composite member of the 23-aliquot tree. Although 57 is not prime, it is jokingly known as the "Grothendieck prime" after a story in which Grothendieck advances it as an example of a particular prime number.
As a semiprime, 57 is a Blum integer since its two prime factors are both Gaussian primes.
57 is a 20-gonal number. It is a Leyland number since 25 + 52 = 57.
57 is a repdigit in base 7 .

Oh that's just great. First DenverFox wants me to spell and now you want me to employ higher math. I'm outta here. Good night.

BTW, not only have I seen Spotted Dick in a pub in England, I was treated for it.

Are Grothendieck, Blum, and Leyland newbies in the 65+ thread?

Does that mean exactly 57 years old? Not one day more or less? So would 57 1/2 count? Are you counting from conception or birth?

I blew tea out my nose onto the computer when I read this. I can't believe no others saw the humor here--like Larry the Cable Guy says, "I don't care what you think, that's funny."

ps: hope the treatment wasn't too painful

I'm thinking that it's another of those products that it's better not to see being made. Might this be an animal byproduct perchance?

I've been checking out the spotted dick in the grocery store the last two visits. I've been too chicken to try it. I will buy some tomorrow and report.

August 26. That's a great day to be born, and I should know.

In my old neighborhood there two brothers who both had birthdays on Aug 26th. But they were born 3 years apart.
