    If you're interested in these interesting types of things you should look at doing some wider reading around your gcse maths- just go to the library/ a bookshop pick up some random maths books and you will find loads more things similar to these!

    I used to have a copy of this book, not sure where it is now but it's full of little puzzles and mathematical quirks.

    I seem to recall that 'things to make and do in the fourth dimension' had quite a few of these interesting numbers/ maths facts.

     \displaystyle \left (1+9^{-4^{6\times 7}}\right )^{3^{2^{85}}} \approx e and is accurate to around 18 trillion trillion digits.
    Notice the expression uses all the digits from 1 to 9 exactly once. Pretty amazing though not really an accident more just clever rearrangement.

    Yeah I think I’ve seen this on numberphile before. Thanks for reminding me

     i^i = e^{-\pi /2} and i^{1/i} =i^{-i} =e^{\pi /2}

    I think it's amazing that purely imaginary numbers give purely real results.

    Unparseable or potentially dangerous latex formula. Error 4: no dvi output from LaTeX. It is likely that your formula contains syntax errors or worse.
    i^i = \dfrac{1}{e^{\frac{\pi}{2}}
    and i^{\frac{1}{i}} =i^{-i} =e^{\frac{\pi}{2}}

    I think it's amazing that purely imaginary numbers give purely real results.
    That is crazy

    There is a special number called Wau. And there are multiple cool things about it:
    Wau^pi^wau^2pi^wau^3pi..... =wau xsqrtwau x cuberootwau....
    In a rectangle if the ratio of the sides=wau, ie:x/y=wau, then wau=(x+x^y+x^x^y...)/(y+y^x+y^y^x....)
    E^wau/(mc^2)=wau.
    and many more.

    Thank you. I thought it was The Big Bang Theory because there’s some reference to this.
