eπi

The previous number is greater than 1. The real component of eix is cos(x), which cannot be greater than 1, and therefore the numbers are different.

The natural logarithm of the previous number is an imaginary number, when squared gives a negative number. The natural logarithm of my number is real, when squared gives a positive number. Since a positive number can't be a negative, the values are different.

10^Googolplexian

The number I'm posting is a multiple of 10, and therefore contains at least one 0. The previous number doesn't contain any zero, hence the difference.

The previous number was even and this number is odd, and an even number can't be odd so the numbers are different.

77

This number has a repeated digit while the previous one didn't. There's only one decimal representation for integers, so such a repetition of one should mean they're different.

Vytron, I challenge that. 0 and 00 are, by your logic, different numbers, but they are clearly both zero!

77 (in base 8)

If you add 1 to this number, you get a multiple of 8. If you add 1 to the previous number, you do not get a multiple of 8. Therefore the numbers are different.

25 is 25 and not 77, thus, 25 is not 77

63

This is the same number as the number the previous number claims to be different from, expressed in base 10 rather than base 8. Therefore, if the previous number differs from the number before it, this number differs from the previous number.

0 is the decimal representation for zero, so I'll claim representing it with more than one 0 is unnecessary and wrong so such alternatives for number writing should be ignored when comparing if numbers are different.

25

This number was posted two posts ago so to prove it is the same as last post you'd have to prove first that SirGabriel's and Daggoth's are the same. Good luck with that.

The square root of this number is not an integer, but the previous number has an integer square root. Therefore the numbers are different.

109

The md5 checksum of this number (as a string) is 2723d092b63885e0d7c260cc007e8b9d, and the md5 checksum of the previous number is a1d0c6e83f027327d8461063f4ac58a6. These checksums are different, therefore the numbers are different.

1012

101 in binary is 5 in decimal. If the previous number was written in binary, it'd require at least 7 digits. The number I'm sending uses 3 digits (not counting the one used to depict the base.)

3 is less than 7, hence the numbers are different or one of these statements is false (hint: none of these statements is false.)

6
(Previous number plus one)
Any real number plus one will never be the same as the original number. I don't know if this breaks a rule

66

This is the previous number raised to the power of itself. No number raised to the power of itself equals itself, with the exception of 1 (and possibly 0, I don't know what 00 equals). Since 6 is neither 0 nor 1, this is different from the previous number.

What about (-1)^(-1) = -1
xx will approach 1 as x approaches 0.

Forgot about that one. But 6 has an absolute value greater than 1, and no number with an absolute value greater than 1 can equal itself when raised to the power of itself, so my number is still different from the previous one.

I challenge the validity of NAN, because the rules tell you to post a number, not a not a number.

If NaN is valid what stops me from posting:

NaN is in the floating point spec and floating point numbers are numbers so NaN is a number.

In that case I send:

ZIP Code

Because all ZIP Codes are a 5 digit number.

The last number had one digit, a ZIP Code has 5, so they're different.

pi

The previous requires at least 3 characters to represent using ASCII characters,but this number requires only 2 characters. Therefore they are different.

Square root of 2

If you multiply this number by itself, you get a whole number, but pi doesn't have this property, so they're different.

The previous number was irrational and this number is rational, and an irrational number can't be rational, so the numbers are different.

1.3333333333

This number, when expressed in decimal form, has a finite number of digits after the decimal. The previous number, when expressed in decimal form, has an infinite number of digits after the decimal. Therefore they are different.

13333333333

This number has its decimal point in a different place than the previous number, making it be orders of magnitude bigger than the previous one. Identical numbers have identical orders of magnitude, so the numbers should be different.

Being half doesn't mean it's not the same number, because the number could be zero, so our numbers could be the same.

6666666666.6

The previous number contained 11 digits, 1 of which differed from the other 10. This number contains 11 digits, all of which are the same. Therefore this number is different from the previous one.

When spoken out loud in English, this number begins with an "e", while the previous one begins with an "s". These numbers only have a single name, so they should be different.

Tau

Tau is 2 times Pi, a number that can't be expressed with a single digit (such as the previous number.)
