For example, in the hundreds we have: 8(=2x4), 45(=5x9), 48(=8x6); here a = 4.

Numerical Giants In physics, chemistry, and astronomy, numerical "giants" and "dwarfs" are often encountered; for example, distances from the earth to the nearest stars are of the order of 1013 to 1014 km, the radius of an atom is of the order of 10" 8 cm, the number of molecules in one gram-molecule of a substance equals 6 x 1023 approximately (Avogadro's number).
