#### Transcript of Charles

Carl Friedrich Gauss was called the
"Prince of Mathematicians"... You know why? Famous Discoveries Carl Friedrich Gauss was the discoverer of
one of the most phenomenal mathematical discoveries
yet. He discovered that any positive number
would be the sum of at maximum, three triangle
numbers. Triangle numbers are the number of dots
needed to make a right triangle. It can also be
explained as the diagram on the left. Carl had also discovered many prime number theories and had two that were very successful, one of the two was basically that the higher the number was, the less chance it would be a prime number, for example, a number in the 20,000's might have a prime every 5 numbers whereas a number in the 100,000's might have a prime number every 10 numbers. I also believe this since the higher the number, the more numbers there are below it to be a factor of the higher number. This theory is called the prime number theorem. One of his other great works with prime
numbers was the "Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic". This theory states that any positive number above 1 would be the product of a prime number. For example, let's take a random number like 28, It can be the product of the three prime numbers 2,7 an 2. 2 x 2 = 4 x 7 = 28. Entrance and Exit
of Carl Friedrich Gauss Gauss was born in Braunschweig, April 30th, 1777 as a son of lower class parents that were uneducated. He died in Göttingen, Hanover in 1855, as a famous mathematician. dflajdfkasd dfasdfadfadfasdf dfafeddads
