## In mathematics

6 is the smallest positive integer which is neither a square number nor a prime number. Six is the second smallest composite number; its proper divisors are 1, 2 and 3.[1]

Since six equals the sum of its proper divisors, six is the smallest perfect number,[1] Granville number, and ${\displaystyle {\mathcal {S}}}$ -perfect number.[2][3]

As a perfect number:

Six is the only number that is both the sum and the product of three consecutive positive numbers.[5]

Unrelated to 6 being a perfect number, a Golomb ruler of length 6 is a "perfect ruler".[6] Six is a congruent number.[7]

Six is the first discrete biprime (2 × 3) and the first member of the (2 × q) discrete biprime family.

Six is a unitary perfect number,[8] a primary pseudoperfect number,[9] a harmonic divisor number[10] and a superior highly composite number,[11] the last to also be a primorial.

There are no Graeco-Latin squares with order 6.[12] If n is a natural number that is not 2 or 6, then there is a Graeco-Latin square with order n.

There is not a prime p such that the multiplicative order of 2 modulo p is 6, that is, ordp(2) = 6. By Zsigmondy's theorem, if n is a natural number that is not 1 or 6, then there is a prime p such that ordp(2) = n. See A112927 for such p.

The ring of integer of the sixth cyclotomic field Q6) , which is called Eisenstein integer, has 6 units: ±1, ±ω, ±ω2, where ${\displaystyle \omega ={\frac {1}{2}}(-1+i{\sqrt {3}})=e^{2\pi i/3}}$ .

The smallest non-abelian group is the symmetric group S3 which has 3! = 6 elements.[1]

S6, with 720 elements, is the only finite symmetric group which has an outer automorphism. This automorphism allows us to construct a number of exceptional mathematical objects such as the S(5,6,12) Steiner system, the projective plane of order 4 and the Hoffman-Singleton graph. A closely related result is the following theorem: 6 is the only natural number n for which there is a construction of n isomorphic objects on an n-set A, invariant under all permutations of A, but not naturally in one-to-one correspondence with the elements of A. This can also be expressed category theoretically: consider the category whose objects are the n element sets and whose arrows are the bijections between the sets. This category has a non-trivial functor to itself only for n = 6.

Six similar coins can be arranged around a central coin of the same radius so that each coin makes contact with the central one (and touches both its neighbors without a gap), but seven cannot be so arranged. This makes 6 the answer to the two-dimensional kissing number problem.[13] The densest sphere packing of the plane is obtained by extending this pattern to the hexagonal lattice in which each circle touches just six others.

A cube has 6 faces

6 is the largest of the four all-Harshad numbers.[14]

A six-sided polygon is a hexagon,[1] one of the three regular polygons capable of tiling the plane. Figurate numbers representing hexagons (including six) are called hexagonal numbers. Because 6 is the product of a power of 2 (namely 21) with nothing but distinct Fermat primes (specifically 3), a regular hexagon is a constructible polygon.

Six is also an octahedral number.[15] It is a triangular number[16] and so is its square (36).

There are six basic trigonometric functions.[17]

There are six convex regular polytopes in four dimensions.

The six exponentials theorem guarantees (given the right conditions on the exponents) the transcendence of at least one of a set of exponentials.[18]

All primes above 3 are of the form 6n ± 1 for n ≥ 1.

## Greek and Latin word parts

### Hexa

Hexa is classical Greek for "six".[1] Thus:

### The prefix sex-

Sex- is a Latin prefix meaning "six".[1] Thus:

• Senary is the ordinal adjective meaning "sixth"[22]
• People with sexdactyly have six fingers on each hand
• The measuring instrument called a sextant got its name because its shape forms one-sixth of a whole circle
• A group of six musicians is called a sextet
• Six babies delivered in one birth are sextuplets
• Sexy prime pairs – Prime pairs differing by six are sexy, because sex is the Latin word for six.[23][24]

The SI prefix for 10006 is exa- (E), and for its reciprocal atto- (a).

## Evolution of the glyph

The first appearance of 6 is in the Edicts of Ashoka circa 250 BCE. These are Brahmi numerals, ancestors of Hindu-Arabic numerals.

The first known "6" in the number "256" in Ashoka's Minor Rock Edict No.1 in Sasaram, circa 250 BCE

The evolution of our modern glyph for 6 appears rather simple when compared with that for the other numerals. Our modern 6 can be traced back to the Brahmi numerals of India, which are first known from the Edicts of Ashoka circa 250 BCE.[25][26][27][28] It was written in one stroke like a cursive lowercase e rotated 90 degrees clockwise. Gradually, the upper part of the stroke (above the central squiggle) became more curved, while the lower part of the stroke (below the central squiggle) became straighter. The Arabs dropped the part of the stroke below the squiggle. From there, the European evolution to our modern 6 was very straightforward, aside from a flirtation with a glyph that looked more like an uppercase G.[29]

On the seven-segment displays of calculators and watches, 6 is usually written with six segments. Some historical calculator models use just five segments for the 6, by omitting the top horizontal bar. This glyph variant has not caught on; for calculators that can display results in hexadecimal, a 6 that looks like a "b" is not practical.

Just as in most modern typefaces, in typefaces with text figures the 6 character usually has an ascender, as, for example, in  .[30]

This numeral resembles an inverted 9. To disambiguate the two on objects and documents that can be inverted, the 6 has often been underlined, both in handwriting and on printed labels.

## In sports

• The Original Six teams in the National Hockey League are Toronto, Chicago, Montreal, New York, Boston, and Detroit.[67] They are the oldest remaining teams in the league, though not necessarily the first six; they comprised the entire league from 1942 to 1967.
• Number of players:
• In association football (soccer), the number of substitutes combined by both teams, that are allowed in the game.
• In box lacrosse, the number of players per team, including the goaltender, that are on the floor at any one time, excluding penalty situations.[68]
• In ice hockey, the number of players per team, including the goaltender, that are on the ice at any one time during regulation play, excluding penalty situations. (Some leagues reduce the number of players on the ice during overtime.)[69]
• In volleyball:
• Six players from each team on each side play against each other.[70]
• Standard rules only allow six total substitutions per team per set. (Substitutions involving the libero, a defensive specialist who can only play in the back row, are not counted against this limit.)
• Six-man football is a variant of American or Canadian football, played by smaller schools with insufficient enrollment to field the traditional 11-man (American) or 12-man (Canadian) squad.[71]
• Scoring:
• In both American and Canadian football, 6 points are awarded for a touchdown.[72]
• In Australian rules football, 6 points are awarded for a goal, scored when a kicked ball passes between the defending team's two inner goalposts without having been touched by another player.
• In basketball, the ball used for women's full-court competitions is designated "size 6".[73]
• In most rugby league competitions (but not the Super League, which uses static squad numbering), the jersey number 6 is worn by the starting five-eighth (Southern Hemisphere term) or stand-off (Northern Hemisphere term).
• In rugby union, the starting blindside flanker wears jersey number 6. (Some teams use "left" and "right" flankers instead of "openside" and "blindside", with 6 being worn by the starting left flanker.)[74]

## In the arts and entertainment

### Games

• The number of sides on a cube, hence the highest number on a standard die[78]
