As for everything else, so for a mathematical theory: beauty can be perceived but not explained.~Arthur CayleyThe 26th day of the year; 26 is the smallest non-palindrome with a palindromic square. (676). (What's the next smallest?)Fermat's sandwich theorem states that 26 is the only number sandwiched between a perfect square number \(5^2=25\) and a perfect cubic number \(3^3 = 27\). According to Singh (1997), after challenging other mathematicians to establish this result while not revealing […]
