2024 in Numbers

Let’s dive into some interesting number facts!

If you’ve ever wondered how to write the year 2024 in Roman numerals, it’s MMXXIV. And, if you ever find yourself needing to know what 2024 looks like in binary, it’s 11111101000.

Leap Year

2024 is a leap year, meaning we get an extra day in February. This extra day corrects for the gradual misalignment between our calendar and the Earth’s journey around the sun.

Harshad Number

2024 is a Harshad number, which is a number that can be evenly divided by the sum of its digits. It’s like a special math rule for some numbers.

To explain in more detail, we add up the digits (2 + 0 + 2 + 4), which equals 8. And now we see if 2024 can be divided evenly by 8, which it can! 2024 ÷ 8 = 253. So this makes 2024 a Harshad number.

Abundant Number

Also, 2024 is known as an abundant number. An abundant number is a number where if you add up all the smaller numbers that can divide evenly into it, the total sum is greater than the number itself.

So, when you add up all the smaller numbers that can divide evenly into 2024 (1, 2, 4, 8, 11, 22, 23, 44, 46, 88, 92, 184, 253, 506, 1012), they add up to 2296, which is greater than 2024.

Chinese Zodiac 2024

Chinese Zodiac 2024: Year of the Wood Dragon

According to the Chinese calendar, 2024 is the Year of the Dragon, which occurs every twelve years.

But did you know that the Chinese zodiac cycle also incorporates the five elements – Wood, Fire, Earth, Gold (Metal), and Water? So 2024 is actually the Year of the Wood Dragon, which only occurs every sixty years!

Because the Chinese calendar works from the lunar cycle, the Chinese New Year for 2024 didn’t start on January 1st. Instead, it runs from February 10th to February 28, 2025.

Individuals born in the Year of the Dragon are known for their strong leadership qualities, ambition, and confidence. They possess a charismatic and magnetic personality.

Famous people born in Years of the Dragon include Jhené Aiko and Lizzo!
