In mathematics

85 is the product of two prime numbers (5 and 17), and is therefore a biprime; specifically, the 24th biprime not counting perfect squares. Together with 86 and 87, it forms the second cluster of three consecutive biprimes. The aliquot sum of 85 is 23 within the aliquot sequence (23,1,0), 85 being the second composite number in the 23-aliquot tree.

85 is an octahedral number, a centered triangular number, a centered square number, and a decagonal number.

85 can be expressed as a sum of two squares in two ways, 85= 92 + 22 = 72 + 62, the lowest number to have this property with all squares greater than 1.[1] It is also the length of the hypotenuse of four pythagorean triangles.

In base 10 it is a Smith number.

85 is 1111 (a repunit) in base 4.

In U.S. college athletics, schools that are members of NCAA Division I are limited to providing athletic scholarships to a maximum of 85 football players in a given season. The specifics vary by the two Division I football subdivisions:

  • In the top-level FBS, each player provided with a scholarship may, and almost always does, receive a full scholarship.
  • In the second-level FCS, schools are allowed to provide football-related athletic aid equivalent to 63 full scholarships, but this aid may be divided among up to 85 players as the schools see fit.
