The most well known multiple of 37 is the beast number (666). The first occurrence of 666 in pi appears on digits 2441, 2442 and 2443, when including the initial 3 before the decimal point, i.e. the whole series of pi 's digits. The sum of these is 7326 or 11 * 666. [Mallett]

The following 37-word quotation is ascribed to the great Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler (1707-1783): "Mathematicians have tried in vain to this day to discover some order in the sequence of prime numbers, and we have reason to believe that it is a mystery into which the human mind will never penetrate."

37 * 03 = 111
   * 06 = 222
   * 09 = 333
   * 12 = 444
   * 15 = 555
   * 18 = 666
   * 21 = 777
   * 24 = 888
   * 27 = 999.
All three-digit repdigits are divisible by 37.

Ooooooohhhhhh......
there's an infinite amount of primes, and I'm still on 37......

(so logically, if there's an infinite amount, no, no it won't end.... 8) )
