153 is equal to the alternating sum and difference of the squares of the integers from 1 to 153's largest prime factor, 17. [Cramer]
π(153) = π(15) x 3!. [Gupta]

The largest known natural number n such that
2n does not contain the prime
digit 3. It ends with 3, but also with the largest known

The smaller member of a Ruth–Aaron pair; since the prime factors of 153 are 3 and 17, and the prime factors of 154
are 2, 7, and 11. Finally, 3 + 17 = 2 + 7 + 11. [Luen]
