In mathematics

115 has a square sum of divisors:


It is unknown whether the set of numbers with this property is infinite, but this would follow from the truth of the Bunyakovsky conjecture on polynomials with infinitely many prime values.[1]

There are 115 different rooted trees with exactly eight nodes,[2] 115 inequivalent ways of placing six rooks on a 6 × 6 chess board in such a way that no two of the rooks attack each other,[3] and 115 solutions to the stamp folding problem for a strip of seven stamps.[4]

115 is also a heptagonal pyramidal number.[5] The 115th Woodall number,

115\cdot 2^{115}-1=4\;776\;913\;109\;852\;041\;418\;248\;056\;622\;882\;488\;319,

is a prime number.[6]

In other fields

115 is also the fire service emergency number in Mauritius[7] and Italy,[8] and the ambulance emergency number in Vietnam.[9]
