Over the ages, people have attributed many facts to numbers. Numerology, superstition, important dates, and so many other things cling to various numbers, which in some cases gives them great significance!

Today let’s take a look at ten sensational facts about the number six.

The number six is perfect. Well, a perfect number anyway. A perfect number is a number that is equal to the numbers it can be divided by. In the number six’s case, it can be divided by one, two, and three. If you add these together, it makes the number six, which is the lowest perfect number.

Both the prefix hex- and sex- can be used to denote the number six. For example, a sextet is a group of six musicians, while a hexagon has six sides. The reason we use both hex- and sex- is because they come from Greek and Latin. Latin for six is sex, while the Greek for six is hex.

If you’re a fan of math, brace yourselves for the sexiest mathematical term ever – sexy primes. Sexy primes are two different primes that are six numbers apart, such as five and eleven. Once again, these primes are sexy because they would read as sixy primes in Latin!

The most common shape of a die is a six-sided cube, which, as its name implies, has six faces. This is because it is a cube, and all cubes must have six identical faces. Another name for a shape with six faces is a hexahedron.
