Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Number of sides to a Mobius strip

A Mobius strip is a one-sided and one-edged surface.

A Mobius strip can take on any size or shape. An easy one to imagine is a half-twisted strip of paper joined together. The object is named for August Ferdinand Möbius, a 19th century German mathematician who discovered the concept in 1858 with Johann Benedict Listing.
2. Permanent members of the United Nations' Security Council

There are five permanent members of the UN Security Council.

The council consists of fifteen members of which five are the aforementioned permanent members (China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States) and the other ten are non-permanent members elected for two-year terms. Any UN member nation can be elected to a non-permanent term. Among the ten elected members at any time, five come from African or Asian nations, one from Eastern Europe, and two from Latin America. The final two members come from Western Europe or other regions not captured in the above regions.
3. Tiles in a standard Scrabble hand

A standard Scrabble hand consists of seven tiles.

Before the start of the game each player draws seven tiles from the bag and places them on the rack. A player can replenish their hand back to seven tiles at the end of each turn where they played tiles on to the board. There are exactly 100 tiles included in the game - 98 with letters and two blank tiles that can be used as wild tiles that can serve as any letter.
4. Tom Brady's jersey number

Tom Brady wore the #12 for the duration of his NFL career.

It's hard to imagine a player who retired as a seven-time Super Bowl champion and three-time NFL MVP once being at the bottom of the totem pole but that was Brady when he arrived at his first training camp with the New England Patriots in 2001. Brady wore the #10 in his collegiate career at the University of Michigan but that number was taken by veteran punter Lee Johnson in New England. Like most young athletes Brady was content just to have a jersey number at all and did not ask to switch with Johnson, or shift back to the #10 once Johnson was released at the end of the 2001 season.
5. The number of "blackbirds baked in a pie"

"Sing a song of sixpence,
a pocketful of rye,
four and 20 blackbirds
baked in a pie."

It's unknown where the nursery rhyme "Sing a Song of Sixpence" originated but it's estimated to come from the early 16th century. A cultural fad at that time involved putting live birds in a pie and having them emerge upon slicing.
6. NYC street, site of the movie "Miracle on..."

The movie referenced is "Miracle on 34th Street".

Edmund Gwenn plays Kris Kringle, a man hired to act as Santa Claus at the flagship Macy's department store on 34th Street in New York City. Gwenn won an Oscar for "Best Actor in a Supporting Role". The film has become a cultural staple during the Christmas season. It was inducted into the United States' National Film Registry in 2005.
7. Days of Lent

Lent consists of the 40 days (excluding Sundays) between Ash Wednesday and Holy Thursday in the leadup to Easter.

Lent is celebrated as a time for spiritual and personal reconnection for Catholics and other Christian denominations. Forty is a recurring number in the Bible in relation to penitence or punishment from God.
8. Heinz

57 is synonymous with Heinz for the company's "57 Varieties" slogan.

Founder Henry J. Heinz first launched the slogan in 1896. He arbitrarily decided on the number for marketing purposes despite the company already selling over 60 products at the time. In later years, Heinz disclosed that 57 also comprised Henry and his wife Teresa's lucky numbers (5 and 7 respectively). When the Pittsburgh-based company reached a deal for the naming rights of the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers' stadium, they settled on an annual rate of $57 million.
9. Atomic number of gold

The atomic number of gold is 79.

Gold has become such a valuable commodity for both its rarity and low reactivity. Gold has been used in everything from jewelry to currency for thousands of years. A large supply of the world's gold comes from South Africa. South Africa was the world's leading exporter of gold annually from 1905 to 2007 when it was surpassed by China.
10. Number of keys on a piano

A standard piano has 88 total keys.

The 88 keys are split among 52 white and 36 black keys. A piano is capable of playing seven octaves. Each octave consists of seven white and five black keys. The 88-key piano was born out of a desire by 18th and 19th century composers to have more range than that provided by the traditional 60-key harpsichord. Steinway produced the first 88-key piano in the 1880s.
