It is an interprime number because it is at equal distance from previous prime (71) and next prime (73).

It can be written as a sum of positive squares in only one way, i.e., 36 + 36 = 6^2 + 6^2 .

It is a tau number, because it is divible by the number of its divisors (12).

It is an ABA number since it can be written as A⋅B^{A}, here for A=2, B=6.

It is a Harshad number since it is a multiple of its sum of digits (9).

72 is an idoneal number.

It is an Ulam number.

It is an alternating number because its digits alternate between odd and even.

It is a polite number, since it can be written in 2 ways as a sum of consecutive naturals, for example, 23 + 24 + 25.

72 is a droll number since its even prime factors and its odd prime factors have the same sum.

It is a pronic number, being equal to 8×9.

It is an amenable number.

It is a practical number, because each smaller number is the sum of distinct divisors of 72

72 is an abundant number, since it is smaller than the sum of its proper divisors (123).

It is a pseudoperfect number, because it is the sum of a subset of its proper divisors.

72 is a wasteful number, since it uses less digits than its factorization.

72 is an evil number, because the sum of its binary digits is even.

The sum of its prime factors is 12 (or 5 counting only the distinct ones).

The product of its digits is 14, while the sum is 9.

The square root of 72 is about 8.4852813742. The cubic root of 72 is about 4.1601676461.

Adding to 72 its reverse (27), we get a palindrome (99).

Subtracting from 72 its reverse (27), we obtain a triangular number (45 = T_{9}).

The spelling of 72 in words is "seventy-two", and thus it is an aban number, an iban number, and an uban number.
