Infinity is a genuine math concept that has its basis in the
unboundedness of counting or of divvying up a continuous
line. <125 characters>

[The rule here is no longer than 200 characters, math-related
only, and for the purpose of discussion without running off
or aground ... so no big arguments or multi-posts.]

The square on the hypotenuse of a right triangle is exactly
equal in area to the sum of the areas of the squares on the
other two sides - Pythagorus. <150 characters>

The exponential constant raised to the power of
the imaginary unit and the circular constant equals
the negative unit.

Any prime leaving a remainder of one when divided by four is expressible as the sum of two positive squares.

Every prime is one away from a multiple of six except for two and three.

The numeric value of pi is not the solution of
any polynomial equation with all coefficients
being integers.

A prime natural number cannot be expressed as
the product of two natural numbers different from
one and itself.

If it's true of one, and it's always true of one more, then it's true of all.

Four plus three is seven.
And seven's odd not even.

Two out of three ain't bad, but one is the loneliest number that you'll ever do.

The nth root of a non-negative integer is irrational
if the integer is not itself an nth power of an integer
if n is an integer greater than one.
It is however not transcendental because it is algebraic.

1 and 9 are the only perfect squares whose decimal representation consists entirely of odd digits.
