• 73 over 2 is 36 remainder 1

36 over 2 is 18 remainder 0

18 over 2 is 9 remainder 0

9 over 2 is 4 remainder 1

4 over 2 is 2 remainder 0 2 over 2 is 1 remainder 0 1 over 2 is 0 ﻿ remainder 1

Thus 1001001

• is﻿ it over 9000?

• Hows that algorithm called?

Id have done it with 73-64=9 => one "64s"=2^6s and 9= 2^3+2^0

=> one 2^6 one 2^3 and one 2^0 => 1001001 but﻿ yours seems more effective^^

• Fixed it haha﻿

• Too late now! Muahahahahaha!

24 is the﻿ highest number anyway

• Sheldon﻿ rocks!!

• So basically 73 is the 21st Prime number, it's reverse (37) is the 12th prime number, and if you reverse THAT you get 21 again, which is the product of 7 and 3.﻿ 73 in binary is a palindrome: 1001001 and 73 in Morse Code is ALSO a Palindrome: --... ...-- This episode is also the 73rd episode of TBBT (which is also a palindrome if anybody asks)

• A base 8 number system :)﻿

• BTW is By﻿ The Way, what I'm thinking is WTF is octal.
