The square root of 2222 is 47.138094, according to my little calculator. The cube root of 2222 is some number less than 20. 2222 factoral is 3.4310637869208214326346682154289e+6473. log 2222 is 3.3467440546048488102391270441905. 2222 in hexadecimal is 8AE. In octal it's 21042 (note the symmetry of those numbers!). And, of course, in binary it is 10010010010.
Congratulations, Amos! I can't find much about the decimal number 2222 that...wait...2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 16. 16 is a non-prime number. The square root of 16 is 4, another non-prime number. And the square root of 4 is 2, which IS a prime number! The square root of 2 is 1.4142135..., and I find it HIGHLY significant that the first SEVEN numbers of the square root of two are ALSO found in the first nine numbers in pi (3.14159265...). Coincidence? I think not!
