# What will happen in 2029?

99942 Apophis is a 270m diameter near Earth asteroid that was thought to be on a collision course with Earth. It caused a panic in 2004 as it was thought that it might hit the earth in 2029. New calculations estimate that the asteroid will now most likely miss.

### How do you find all positive integers N such that the product 2029 x N has exactly four divisors?

2029 is a prime number. So let N be any prime number other than 2029. Then 2029*N has the four factors 1, 2029, N and 2029*N. [If N = 2029, then 2029 and N are the same and you have only 3 factors.] So in theory you can find N. However, since there are infinitely many prime numbers, you cannot find them all.

### How do you find all positive integers N such that the product 2029 x N has exactly three divisors?

There is only 1 value of N that satisfies 2029 x N has exactly three divisors: N = 2029 To have exactly three divisors, the number must be the square of a prime number. 2029 is a prime number with exactly 2 divisors (1 and 2029). Thus the only number with exactly three divisors of which two are 1 and 2029 is 20292 (= 4116841), making N = 2029.

### Is everyone going to die in 2029?

It seems unlikely. Even I will only be 79 in 2029, and my family is noted for long life expectancy. Oh, you were referring to the Friday, April 13, 2029 near pass by the asteroid Apophis? No, Apophis will certainly miss the Earth in 2029. However, it will come quite close to the Earth, and the Earth's gravity will deflect the orbit of Apophis very slightly, giving it a tiny but measurable probability of striking…

### Why does February 6 fall on Sunday in 2028 but Tuesday in 2029 - 2029 is not a leap year?

The effect of an extra day of a leap year only happens after the 29th of February. Dates in a leap year up to then are one day ahead of the previous year. Dates in January and February in the year after a leap year will have jumped the second day. So the 6th of February fits into that category. You will find that in 2027 it was on a Saturday, so it only jumped…

### What month will it be in 187 months?

The question was asked in August 2012. 187 months later would be March 2028. The question is being answered in February 2014. 187 months later would be September 2029.
