Numbers Game

With Count to 100 done, I decided it is time to bring back numbers.

RULES:
Beginning with 1, count up from there, using the standard typed number or spelled number (i.e. 2 or two, not II) . BUT, for every post, you must give at least one interesting fact about that number. The fact must be math or science related. You may do more than one fact if you want. Think of this as a version of youtuber Yenji Jem's "Interesting Numbers" series.

EXAMPLE:

1: only one factor
2: only even prime
3: atomic number of lithium (yeah)

I will start:

1: for any number x, x*1=x

KDestroyer9 you failed to mention if this is strictly a 2/two or if roman/binary numbers where allowed. With the count to 100 game there became some confusion and finally was decided to use 2/two to keep confusion to a minimum. May I suggest you do the same here, Mod Bluegrasss


2

Number 2 in Chinese Culture. Two is the smallest even number, usually with the meaning of 'double', 'twinned' and 'again'. It is an auspicious number in Chinese culture, because Chinese people believe that 'good things come in pairs'.

9: If you multiply any number by 9 and add the digits, you get a smaller multiple. Repeat and you eventually get 9.
