About the Number 78 (seventy-eight)

MathBabbler created a nBAB for the number 77 on 29 March 2009. While working on that nBAB, he learned that 77 was a Ruth-Aaron pair with 78. On 31 March 2009, MathBabbler and his CSC100 class wrote a C program that determines if a number is a member of the Ruth-Aaron pair. This nBAB about the number 78 is the first nBAB to use the MBNA's Ruth-Aaron program.

On 2 April 2009, when this nBAB was created, the MBNA was not checking from triangular numbers.
