• The sum of the first 53 primes is 5830, which is divisible by 53, a property shared by few other numbers.[2][3]
• 53 written in hexadecimal is 35, that is, the same characters used in the decimal representation, but reversed. Four additional multiples of 53 share this property: 371 = 17316, 5141 = 141516, 99481 = 1849916, and 8520280 = 082025816.
