Okay, now that I read it

Fuck

Math

It’s certainly an interesting piece of trivia.

That being said, I surmised that this was a peculiarity of our base-10 numeral system, rather than an intrinsic quality of the numbers themselves. So I tried doing it in base-8.

I started with 4311 - 1134, as the sourced link did, only in base-8 rather than base-10 (so the base-10 equivalent would be 2249 - 604). I then preceded along, following the instructions, which netted me this result:

4311 - 1134 = 3155
5531 - 1355 = 4154
5441 - 1445 = 3774
7743 - 3477 = 4244
4442 - 2444 = 1776
7761 - 1677 = 6062
6620 - 0266 = 6632
6632 - 2366 = 4234
4432 - 2344 = 1766

As you can see, it never ends up stopping at 6174. It does, however, reach a similar phenomenon at 1766 (which is 1022 in base-10). What happens isn’t precisely identical, however. Instead of just stopping at 1766 and repeating ad infinitum as our numeral system stops at 6174, base-8 appears to hit 1766, then transform into 6062, 6322, and 4234 before reverting back to 1766 again.

So it’s a cycle, but it’s got a bit more breadth to it and isn’t a single number but rather four. Nor are any of those numbers 6174 in base-10 (or base-8 for that matter).

Link 22 Jul 2,235 notes What Ms Marvel's rare 6th printing means for diversity in comics»

lauriehalseanderson:

Kamala Khan has enraptured the world as many times as she’s saved it. Now, the plucky Pakistani-American teen who made history as the new Ms Marvel, comics’ first ever lead Muslim superhero, is getting a rare sixth printing—and heralding a new era of diversity in comics.

Although the world of comics occupies an increasingly large part of the pop cultural domain—last year the industry did about $800 million in sales—the number of people who actually buy comics is relatively small. Most comics only average about 3,000 copies per printing; with Kamala now on her sixth printing, she’s headed towards a whopping 20,000 print copies sold. 

Still, to put things in perspective, sixth printings are major milestones in the world of comics. Spider-Man Issue #583, the one with President Obama on the cover, only made it to a fifth printing despite making international headlines. Kamala now joins an elite lineup of bestselling comics that have performed beyond all expectations.
