# Numbers

## Numbers are our way to quantify, label, and organize the world around us in a logical manner. However, the systems used to obtain this goal differ geographically, historically, and by relative utility. All questions pertaining to numbers, including historic labeling systems, bases of numerical systems, constants, and the various ways they're grouped together, should be placed into this category.

### How do you enter an imaginary number in a scientific calculator?

Some scientific calculators can't handle complex or imaginary
numbers. If you happen to have a special calculator that does,
probably the manual will tell you how to enter them.
The HP 48 and up series does. It depends on if your calculator
is in Polar Coordinate mode or X-Y coordinate mode, but a quick way
to get the imaginary number i (regardless of which mode the
calculator is currently in), is to press -1, then 'square root'
button.

### What numbers add up to make 666?

666 is the sum of the first 36 numbers: 1+2+3+4... + 36 =
666.
In the book of Revelation, it was most likely intended as a
gematria reference; the sum of the numerals represented by hebrew
letters in a name. Various candidates have been suggested
throughout history.
For example, the hebrew letters of "Caesar Nero" would sum to
666. The roman numerals in "Ellen Gould White" add to 666
(interpreting W as VV and U as V). If you use the code A=101,
B=102, etc, then "Hitler" will add up to 666.
Actually, if you can make up the rules as you go along, it's not
hard to do with any name at all. Just pick a favorite bogeyman, say
"Bill Gates", and try various codes. Aha! the ASCII values in "BILL
GATES" (all caps) sum to 663, and then you can add 3 since he's
really Bill Gates III.
It's been done with Martin Luther, Muhammad, Ronald Reagan, etc.
If necessary, spell the name in Latin, or make up an
official-sounding title and add up its roman numerals, and then
find lots of subjective and cherry-picked evidence supporting why
your target is the Beast of Revelation. For example:
The Roman numerals in the blasphemous title of the pope who
claims to substitute for God, forgiving sins, etc., VICARIVS
FILII DEI, V=5, I=1, C=100, L=50, D=500; add up to 666:
5+1+100+1+5+1+50+1+1+500 +1 = 666.
The first beast of Revelations 13 is an empire which had seven
heads that persecuted God's people. First was Egypt where they were
slaves to the pharaohs, second Assyria captured the 10 tribes of
northern Israel, third Babylon captured the two remaining tribes of
Judah, fourth Medo-Persia, fifth Greece (five are fallen, in John's
time, and one is) sixth Rome destroyed the temple, seventh the
papacy with the pope ruling from the fall of Rome until the deadly
wound of 1798 when Napoleon captured the pope and confiscated all
the papal lands. Italy's Benito Mussolini healed the wound,
restoring the Vatican City by the Lateran Treaty in 1929. The
seventh, restored, became the eighth.
In 1776 a country rose to power on another continent, creating a
religious system derived from the Protestant daughters of the great
whore, keeping the traditions of man above the commandments of God,
trading Passover for Easter, Sabbath worship for "sun"day worship,
etc. These were sanctified by the pope, not by the apostles; they
are not mentioned in the Bible. Receive the mark of the beast by
obeying the pope's laws while disobeying God's laws.

### What is 40 cubed?

To cube a number means simply to multiply that number by itself
3 times. To work out 40 cubed you would simply go:
403 = 40 x 40 x 40
40 x 40 = 1,600
1,600 x 40 = 64,000
403=64,000
Therefore, 40 cubed equals 64,000.
The phrase "multiply that number by itself 3 times." can cause
confusion.
Sometimes, instead of multiplying it thrice (the number itself)
others, due to confusion, just multiply the number by 3... take
note it's cube...
What do you get if you multiply 40 by itself once?
Nearly everyone would say 1,600 which is 40².
Multiply that by 40 then seems to mean multiply the answer by
40, giving 64,000 which is then 40 multiplied by itself twice!
Of course some people will say it doesn't matter how many times
you multiply 40 by itself you'll always get 1,600.
Just think of 40³ as meaning 3 40s multiplied together and you
should avoid any problems.

### Is 0.2 with a horizontal line over it greater than 0.2 without the line?

Yes, the bar over the 2, means that the digit (or digits)
are repeated forever.
so 0.2 (with bar over 2) = 0.2222222222..... is decimal for 2/9
(fraction)
and 0.2 (no bar) = 0.200000000 which is 2/10
you could look at it a few ways.
0.2222222.... = 0.2 + 0.0222222.... which is greater than
0.2
or compare 2/9 & 2/10, 2/9 = 20/90 & 2/10 = 18/90
with the same denominator 20 > 18, so 2/9 > 2/10

###### Asked in Algebra, Numbers , Percentages, Fractions, and Decimal Values

### What is a decimal of 140 percent?

The percent sign % can be defined as "divide by 100".
So the decimal of 140% would be 140/100 or 1.4
So if you wanted to know what 140% of any number was you could
multiply by
1.4 i.e. 140% of 50 is 50 x 1.4 = 70, or since multiplication is
distributive you
could also do this (140 x 50)/100 which will also give you
70
1.4

### What does the word product mean in math?

When you multiply, your answer is called a product.
In math, the word "product" implies multiplication. If you
are asked to find the product of two numbers, you should multiply
them together.
So the product of 3 and 4 would be 3*4=12
Product is the answer you get when you multiply
Example:2×6=12,so 12 is the product
