Fascinating Arithmetic Facts: Unraveling the Mysteries of Numbers Through Brain Games

Arithmetic has been an integral part of human history, and its fascinating aspects continue to capture our imagination. From hidden patterns to mind-boggling numerical relationships, arithmetic holds many secrets waiting to be discovered.

The Magic of Zero
Zero, often taken for granted, has a rich and complex history. Ancient civilizations like the Babylonians and the Mayans independently developed the concept of zero. However, it was the ancient Indians who developed a symbol for zero and incorporated it into their numeral system.

The Beauty of Pi
Pi (π) is an irrational number representing the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. Its decimal representation goes on infinitely without repeating, and mathematicians have been captivated by it for centuries.

Perfect Numbers
A perfect number is a positive integer that is equal to the sum of its proper divisors (excluding itself). The smallest perfect number is 6, as its divisors 1, 2, and 3 add up to 6. Perfect numbers are rare, with only 51 known as of 2021.

Palindromic Numbers
Palindromic numbers read the same forwards and backward, such as 121 and 1331. These numbers have a unique appeal, offering a new perspective on number manipulation.

The Rule of 9
The Rule of 9 is a simple arithmetic trick to determine if a number is divisible by 9. If the sum of a number's digits is divisible by 9, the number itself is divisible by 9. For example, the number 729 has digits that add up to 18 (7+2+9), which is divisible by 9, so 729 is divisible by 9.

Arithmetic is an extraordinary world full of hidden gems. Kobadoo Arithmetic is a brain game that aims to uncover these treasures, making math exciting and accessible to everyone. So, why wait?

The only flag of the world that is shredded by design

If you have played Kobadoo Flags you might have seen some extravagant flags with colourful designs, but you might not have seen before a flag made of separate strips of cloth. This is the case of the flag of Zamora , a beautiful province in the North West of Spain close to the border with Portugal. This flag is not only truly original, but as well one of the oldest in the world. It is composed of a green strip and eight red strips , all of them detached from each other. The red ones represent the eight victories obtained by the legendary warrior Viriathus against the Romans in the 2nd century BC. The green strip was a reward from King Ferdinand II of Aragon  in recognition of the aid provided in the battle of Toro in 1476. Source:

The world's only non-rectangular national flag

There are no written rules about what a national flag should look like. That is why we can observe truly original designs with different number of stripes, colours and additional elements. However, all of them share one characteristic: they have a rectangular shape . Well, actually not all of them. There is a sovereign country whose flag doesn't follow the pattern: Nepal . If you have played Kobadoo Flags before you are probably familiar with it. This beautiful flag is a combination of two pennons used in the past by rival branches of the ruling dynasty . The red colour is a  symbol of bravery  of Nepali people and it is also the colour of Nepal's national flower: rhododendron . The blue border represents   peace and   harmony. The crescent moon on the top pennon symbolizes the coldness near Himalayas and the pure spirit of Nepali people; whereas the sun represents the heat of the southern provinces and the  fierceness of the locals.

These 6 country pairs are twins by flag

These flags of the world are a nightmare for any  Kobadoo   player . Although not two flags of sovereign countries that are exactly the same, they might just differ slightly in colour shades. This is the case of Chad and Romania , where the blue tone of Chad's flag is a bit deeper. These similarities were the cause of an alleged dispute between the two countries in 2004. Moldova and Andorra share the same three colours, but they have a differentiating coat of arms in the center. Monaco and Indonesia have different tones of red and dimension ratios. The flag of Poland has the same horizontal stripes, but reversed. You have to be very observant to notice the difference between the flags of Ivory Coast and Ireland . These two former British colonies display the Union Jack and similar blue shades. Australia 's flag contains the Commonwealth Star and five more white stars, while New Zealand 's flag has only four red stars. It might be a bit easier to distinguish the
