80 (eighty) is the natural number following 79 and preceding 81.

In mathematics[edit]

The sum of Euler's totient function φ(x) over the first sixteen integers is 80.

Adding up some subsets of its divisors (e.g., 1, 4, 5, 10, 20 and 40) gives 80, hence 80 is a semiperfect number.

80 is a ménage number, and is a Harshad number in base 10.

The Pareto principle (also known as the 80-20 rule) states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.[1][2]

Every solvable configuration of the Fifteen puzzle can be solved in no more than 80 single-tile moves.[3]

In religion[edit]

  • According to Exodus 7:7, Moses was 80 years old when he initially spoke to Pharaoh on behalf of his people. Today, 80 years of age is the upper age limit for cardinals to vote in papal elections.

In sports[edit]

Jerry Rice wore the number 80 for the majority of his NFL career. The number 80 is also the retired number of Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Steve Largent; when Rice was traded to the Seahawks, Largent gave the team permission to unretire his number so Rice could wear it.
