1729 is the Ramanujan’s number. When the great Indian mathematician was lying ill in the hospital, Dr. Hardy came to visit him. He said ,the taxi number 1729, in which he came is a boring number.Suddenly Ramanujan’s face lit up & he said , it is not a boring number. It is the only number that is the sum of 2 cubes in two different ways.
10^3 + 9^3 = 1729 & 12^3 + 1^3 = 1729.

Sorry for not checking out the posts earlier.
Ramanujam's number reminded me of another number that I came across while reading a book.
It is called "Kaprekar's constant", 6174. Start with any 4 digit no.in which not all digits are alike.Arrange them in descending order , reverse them to make a new no. and subtract the new no. from the first no.. If you keep repeating this process with the remainders ,you'll( in 8 or less steps) arrive at Kaprekar's constant. Remember to preserve the zeros.
D.R. Kaprekar was a mathematician who lived in India and is also best known outside India for his discovery in 1955 of Kaprekar's constant.
