109 (one hundred [and] nine) is the natural number following 108 and preceding 110.

## In mathematics

109 is the 29th prime number, so it is a prime with a prime subscript.[1] The previous prime is 107, making them both twin primes.[2] 109 is a centered triangular number.[3]

There are exactly 109 different families of subsets of a three-element set whose union includes all three elements,[4] 109 different loops (invertible but not necessarily associative binary operations with an identity) on six elements.[5] and 109 squares on an infinite chessboard that can be reached by a knight within three moves.[6]

## In other fields

109 is also the atomic number of meitnerium.[7]
