The Code Stories has reached 50 posts!!

For our 50^{th} post, we wanted to do something special.

So here is a special post talking about the significance of the number 50 in various fields.

Mathematics:

- It is the smallest number which is
the square of two square numbers in two distinct ways:

50 = 1^{2}+ 7^{2 }and 5^{2}+ 5^{2} - Further it is the sum of 3 squares (3
^{2}+ 4^{2}+ 5^{2}) and the sum of 4 square numbers (6^{2}+ 3^{2 }+ 2^{2}+ 1^{2}). It is called a “Harshad number” - It is “nontotient”.

A number n is nontotient if there is no integer that has exactly n coprimes below it.

Science:

- It is the atomic number of tin(Sn) which is widely used for plating steel cans, used as food containers. Funnily, it is the 49
^{th}most abundant metal on earth. - It is the fifth “Magic number” in nuclear physics.

A “Magic number” is a number of nucleons (protons or neutrons) that are arranged in complete shells in the nucleus making atoms with a “magic number” of nucleons more stable.

Religion:

- In Kabbalah, there are 50 Gates of Wisdom and 50 gates of Impurity.
- The Christian feast of Pentecost
takes place on the 50
^{th}day of the Easter season

Thanks for helping us reach this milestone!

We have a lot planned for the future, so stay tuned!

Amazing connection of math, science and religion. Congrats on this milestone.

Awesome Ansh. Wishing many more (atleast 50;) such jubilees for the code stories blog.

Super Ansh… never knew number 50 has so much significance… good luck for many more to come…
