Single Curio View: (Seek other curios for this number) Thabit ibn Qurra (circa 850 A.D.) noted that if n>1 and each of p = 3*2^(n1)  1, q = 3*2^n  1, and r =(p+1)*(q+1)  1 is prime, then (2^n*p*q) and (2^n*r) are amicable pairs. Descartes wrote to Mersenne in 1638 with the pair 9363584 and 9437056 (n = 7).
