## In mathematics[edit]

**71** is:

- the algebraic degree of Conway's constant, a remarkable number arising in the study of look-and-say sequences.
- the 20th prime number. The next is 73, with which it composes a twin prime.
- a permutable prime with 17.
- is the largest number which occurs as a prime factor of an order of a sporadic simple group.
- a centered heptagonal number.
^{[1]} - an Eisenstein prime with no imaginary part and real part of the form 3
*n*– 1. - a Pillai prime, since 9! + 1 is divisible by 71 but 71 is not one more than a multiple of 9.
^{[2]} - the largest (15th) supersingular prime, which is also a Chen prime.
^{[3]} - part of the last known pair (71, 7) of Brown numbers, since 71
^{2}= 7! + 1. - the twenty-third term of the Euclid–Mullin sequence, as it is the least prime factor of one more than the product of the first twenty-two terms.
^{[4]} - the smallest positive integer
*d*such that the imaginary quadratic field**Q**(√–*d*) has class number = 7.^{[5]}

If we add up the primes less than 71 (2 through 67), we get 568, which is divisible by 71, 8 times.
