In mathematics, a senary numeral system is a base-6 numeral system. Senary may be considered useful in the study of prime numbers since all primes other than 2 and 3, when expressed in base-six, have 1 or 5 as the final digit. Writing out the prime numbers in base-six, the first few primes are That is, for every prime number p with, one has the modular arithmetic relations that either or : the final digits is a 1 or a 5. This is proved by contradiction. For integer n: ⁕If n mod 6 = 0, 6|n ⁕If n mod 6 = 2, 2|n ⁕If n mod 6 = 3, 3|n ⁕If n mod 6 = 4, 2|n Furthermore, all known perfect numbers besides 6 itself have 44 as the final two digits when expressed in base 6.
