Favorite numbers poll

Math Hombre conducted an unofficial favorite numbers poll... the results are interesting!

If you cannot wait to read the article, Pi is the winner!

Some pointers:
  • Phi is the golden ratio, a mathematically important constant
  • The number e is extremely important mathematically and ties in with exponential growth. In fact, of their list, e is my favorite!
  • In case you don't know know why 42 made the top ten... it comes from the book Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy and in that book it is made to be the "answer to the universe and everything" (a joke).

Check out the complete list here.
