"Seventy-six Trombones" is a song from "The Music Man", a 1957 musical written by Meredith Willson.

The professional NBA team from Philadelphia, PA is called the Philadelphia 76ers. They were originally founded in 1946 as the Syracuse Nationals, until 1963.
6. Total of the numbers on a roulette wheel

When you add up all the numbers (1-36) on a roulette wheel, the total comes to 666.

Coincidentally, in Chapter 13 of the "Book of Revelation" in the New Testament, 666 represents "the number of the beast".

A gross refers to a group of one hundred forty four items (i.e., a dozen dozen, with a great gross consisting of 1728 items and a small gross with 120 items).

Rule 144 is an S.E.C. (Securities and Exchange Commission) rule from 1933, which lists the conditions under which restricted stock shares may be resold.
8. Slang for "get rid of"

Answer: Maxwell Smart

Eighty-six is a slang term meaning to get rid of something or eject someone. The origin may have come from a speakeasy (Chumley's) during Prohibition. It was located at 86 Bedford Street in NYC, and '86' was used to warn of a police raid.

On the TV sitcom "Get Smart", Don Adams played not-so-secret agent Maxwell Smart who worked for the agency "CONTROL" (not an acronym). His agent number was 86.

See for yourself. If you add the first eight prime numbers (i.e., 2,3,5,7,11,13, 17 and 19), the sum is 77.

Way back in 1958, a TV show aired which was about a couple of private detectives named Jeff Spencer and Stu Bailey. They worked out of an office on 77 Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, California.
