# 100 (number)

Although round, 100 has baffled number theory students and English majors for many years due to its wildly fluctuating nature. Some reports have put its value as low as 5 and 30, others have placed it as high as 101 and 127 or even higher. Every time the value of 100 is invoked, its meaning is changed, making it a socially dangerous number to talk about. For example, subtle differences in context and culture can change a significant 100 million dollars into a measly 1 billion dollar.

## 100 in mathematics

Contary to popular belief, 100 is actually a very valuable number in mathematics mainly because it is an odd and even number. Believe it or not 100X3=300 which were how many Spartans.

### Proving 100 is a prime number

In the English language, prime means something that is quite high in rank. And since the largest amount of percent reachable in any situation is 100% (ergo being the highest) we can prove that 100 is in fact a prime number.
