Dr. Aziz Inan, Professor of Electrical Engineering, Uses Numeric Sequences to Celebrate Henry Ford’s Birthday
- Henry Ford’s 174th birthday in 2037 will be very special. Why? Its full date will be 7302037, a seven-digit palindrome day.
- Note that this year, 2013, constitutes the 150th anniversary of Ford’s birth as well as the 66th anniversary of his death. However, there is more to it. How? If Ford’s death date 471947 is split again as 47, 19 and 47, 19 plus 47 yields 66, Ford’s death anniversary number this year. Furthermore, multiplying the other 47 with 66 yields 3,102, the reverse of which is this year’s number, 2013.
- Henry Ford’s 13th birthday in 1876 can be expressed as 7301876 equals 2 times 2 times 37 times 103 times 479, where three times the sum of its four prime factors yields his birth year, 1863.
