And this has interest, why?

Now 12/12/12 is interesting. And I think that date rather than 12/21/12 is the end of some period for the Mayan. We should really start working on that and just leave 8/8/8 in the past.

Repeated digits... hmmm What can be done?
Well the result of repeating digits is always divisible by the digits repeated, so:

1) 12/12 = 1 = 10^0
2) 1212/12 = 101 = 10^2 + 10^0
3) 121212/12= 10101 = 10^4 + 10^2 + 10^0
4) 12121212/12 = 1010101 = 10^6 + 10^4 + 10^2 + 10^0
5) 1212121212/12 = 101010101 = 10^8 + 10^6 + 10^4 + 10^2 + 10^0
6) 121212121212/12 = 10101010101 = 10^10 + 10^8 + 10^6 + 10^4 + 10^2 + 10^0

That last one is 12:12:12 on 12/12/12 but we could go on...

You may notice that n repeats of 12 divided by 12 results in n-1 repeats of 10 plus a 1. Are we having fun yet?

101 is prime
10101 is composite, prime factors: 3, 7, 13, 37
1010101 is composite, prime factors: 73, 101, 137
101010101 is composite, prime factors: 47, 271, 9091
