## Unique Properties of 31

- 31 is the earliest and the only known case such that the sum of the divisors of two distinct numbers (16 & 25) is the same prime quantity (31), that is to say: 1+2+4+8+16 = 31 and 1+5+25 = 31
- 31 is the number of minimal composites which cover the set of composites in base 10
- There are only 31 numbers which cannot be expressed as the sum of distinct squares
- 31 = 2
^{2}+ 3^{3}, i.e., the sum of the first two primes raised to themselves
