comment Dividing 100% by 3 without any left
@Cruncher, don't forget base 60 - adds Divisible by 5 to the mix, and happens to be a base people are used to.... Lets take it a little further, and mix it all up with Bases 12:60:60 :)

comment What was the first bit of mathematics that made you realize that math is beautiful? (For children's book)
This is the book that really did it for me: amazon.com/Aha-Insight-Martin-Gardner/dp/071671017X - I already liked math, but this book made me aware I could have fun with it too

comment Last two digits of $3^{400}$
This is in VBA: Function x(Pow, Mult, Modulo)Dim q: x = 1: For q = 1 To Pow: x = x * Mult Mod Modulo: NextEnd Function - I can't put newlines in a comment, so split it at the ¶ symbol
