120 (one hundred twenty) is a positive integer following 119 and preceding 121. A rare name for it is twelfty.[1] Since "hundred" used to refer to either 100 or 120, the names long hundred and great hundred for 120 were also coined to disambiguate them.

120 is:

  • the eighth tetrahedral number
  • the 15th triangular number
  • 5! = 5x4x3x2x1
  • the 5th Superior Highly Composite Number
  • the smallest number with 16 divisors

  • It is also equal to 10!!!!.
