 104 (number) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
One hundred [and] four is a primitive semiperfect number and a composite number, with its divisors being 1, 2, 4, 8, 13, 26, 52 and 104.
The distinct prime factors of 104 add up to 15, and so do the ones of 105, hence the two numbers form a Ruth-Aaron pair under the first definition.
In regular geometry, 104 is the smallest number of unit line segments that can exist in a plane with four of them touching at every vertex.

Beginning in 256 BC with the Qin kingdom, which would later become the Qin dynasty, the intercalary month was an extra ninth month at the end of a year that began with the tenth month, now placing the winter solstice in the eleventh month.
