Also called the ‘Birthday Problem,’ this paradox puts 23 randomly chosen people in a group. Probability has it that of these 23 people, there is a greater than 50% chance that at least two people will share the same birthday. Pretty impressive numbers for a mere group of 23.

One of the most obvious is that 23 is a prime number, specifically the smallest odd prime that is not a twin prime and consists of consecutive digits. The number is also the 5th factorial prime and one of the most cited prime numbers.

The Chinese Remainder Theorem states that if n is a natural number less than 105, 23 is the only possible value of n.


For centuries, mathematicians and scientists have studied the number 23 and the oddities that surround it. From religious occurrences to the working of some of the planet’s greatest geniuses of all time, this is one number that has consistently made an appearance. Coincidence? Who are we to say?
