When I started blogging I called this page Quo Vadis because I wasn't too sure where this blog would go. But over the past one year you have seen it and have been a part of it and have helped it grow to what it is today.
Now for the rest of the post.....

Roman numeral (Unicode)
One hundred is the basis of percentages (literally "per hundred"), with 100% being a full amount.
It is the sum of the first nine prime numbers, as well as the sum of two prime numbers (47 + 53), and the sum of the cubes of the first four integers (100 = 13 + 23 + 33 + 43). Also, 26 + 62 = 100, thus 100 is a Leyland number.
One hundred is also an 18-gonal number. It is divisible
by the number of primes below it, 25 in this case. But it can not be expressed as the difference between any integer and the total of coprimes below it, making it a noncototient. However, it can be expressed as a sum of some of its divisors, making it a semiperfect number.
