Re: Find the number!

Hi;


11^2 = 121, but 11 is not a perfect square, the square root of 11 is not a prime.

Re: Find the number!

Okay, 2 answers, 16 and 265, 16th pope to be named Benedict, and 265th pope overall.

XVII

No Pope Benedict XVII, though!

Bavaria has seven letters. Cube that seven seven times.
