Letter: Carter facts add up


Jimmy Carter is the oldest living U.S. President, and he turned 95 on 10/01/2019. I constructed the following birthday curiosities in his honor:

1. Carter’s birthday, 10/01/1924, is the 275th day of 1924. Interestingly, the sum of the reverses of 275 and the right-most three digits of 1924, namely 572 and 429, yields 1001 (10/01).

2. If Carter’s 95th birthday 10/1/2019 is split as 101 and 2019, 101 is the 26th prime number and the sum of the prime factors of 2019, namely 3 and 673, is 26 square.

3. Furthermore, twice the difference of 101 and 2019 divided by the sum of the digits of 95 yields 274. Coincidentally, the 274th day of 2019 is 10/1.

4. Carter served as the 39th president and January 20, 2020, will mark the 39th anniversary of the end of his presidency.

5. If Carter’s 96th birthday 10/1/2020 is split as 101 and 2020, 2020 equals 20 x 101.

6. Lastly, 10/1 in 2025 will mark Carter’s 101st birthday.

Thank you for all you have done to make our world safer and peaceful Jimmy Carter and happy 95th birthday.
