  • 8191 is a Mersenne prime number, because it has no divisors other than 1 and 8191 itself. Mersenne primes fit the pattern "2p – 1", where "p" is any prime number.
213 - 1 = 8191
  • 8128 is called a perfect number, because its divisors add up to the number itself.
1 + 2 + 4 + 8 + 16 + 32 + 64 + 127 + 254 + 508 + 1016 + 2032 + 4064 = 8128
  • 8208 is a narcissistic number because it contains 4 digits, and raising each of these digits to the 4th power generates four numbers that add up to itself.
84 + 24 + 04 + 84 = 8208
