71 (seventy-one) is the natural number following 70 and preceding 72.

## In mathematics

71 is:

• the 20th prime number. The next is 73, with which it composes a twin prime.
• a permutable prime and emirp with 17.
• the largest number which occurs as a prime factor of an order of a sporadic simple group.
• the sum of three consecutive primes: 19, 23, and 29.
• a centered heptagonal number.[1]
• an Eisenstein prime with no imaginary part and real part of the form ${\displaystyle 3n-1}$.
• a Pillai prime, since ${\displaystyle 9!+1}$ is divisible by 71, but 71 is not one more than a multiple of 9.[2]
• the largest (15th) supersingular prime, which is also a Chen prime.[3]
• part of the last known pair (71, 7) of Brown numbers, since ${\displaystyle 71^{2}=7!+1}$.
• the twenty-third term of the Euclid–Mullin sequence, as it is the least prime factor of one more than the product of the first twenty-two terms.[4]
• the smallest positive integer d such that the imaginary quadratic field ${\displaystyle {\text{Q)){\sqrt {-d))}$ has class number = 7.[5]
• the algebraic degree of Conway's constant, a remarkable number arising in the study of look-and-say sequences.
• the sum of primes less than 71 (2 through 67) is 568, which is divisible by 71.
• 71 is the only number between 1 and 100 that is one less or one more than divisible by all numbers from 2 to 10 (70: 2, 5, 7, 10) (72: 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9).
• 71 is an index of a prime Lucas number. [6]
