200

200 (two hundred) is used as the base of all googologisms by Lawrence Hollom. A faxul, for example, is equal to 200!, or the factorial of 200.[1]

In Maltese, it is called “mitejn”.[2]

Currency-related use Edit

Some currencies, such as the euro and the Swiss franc, have banknotes with this number in the denomination.

Some currencies, such as the Hungarian forint and the Indonesian rupiah, have coins with this number in the denomination.

It is also the prize for correctly answering the first two questions in some national editions of the game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? in the respective local currency, and the prize for correctly answering the first three questions in the German game show Wer wird Millionär? in euros.

Finally, section 200 of the Irish Copyright and Related Rights Act, 2000 provides for perpetual copyright protection of Irish currency designs, and forbids any use of it without explicit permission from the relevant authorities.

In chess Edit

It is also the number of possible rook moves in 5×5 minichess.

In sports Edit

Since at most one team from the Oceania Football Confederation may qualify for the FIFA World Cup, it is also the number of possible combinations of FIFA confederations for the first three places.

Coincidentally, there are currently 200 non-OFC members in FIFA.
