105

This number is a composite.

+ Paul Erdős conjectured that this is the largest number n such that the positive values of n - 2k are all prime.

+ 105/π4 = (1 + 1/24)(1 + 1/34)(1 + 1/54)(1 + 1/74)(1 + 1/114) … . [Ramanujan]

+ The first product of 3 distinct odd primes p. Note that p +/- 2 are primes. [Gallardo]

+ 105 is the first degree for which the cyclotomic polynom factor are not all 1, 0 or -1. [Cristian]

+ The largest natural number n for which all odd numbers k relatively prime to n, with 1 < k < n, are primes. It is also the largest for which 2n-p is prime for each prime p in [n, 2n-2]. [Capelle]

+ The only 3-digit number n whereby subtracting from it each of the first eight powers 2^n, (n=1 to 8), then taking the absolute values of the results, produce prime numbers, i.e., 105-2^1 = 103, 105-2^2 = 101, 105-2^3 = 97, 105-2^4 = 89, 105-2^5 = 73, 105-2^6 = 41, |105-2^7|= 23, |105-2^8| = 151. [Loungrides]
