• a Markov number, appearing in solutions to the Markov Diophantine equation with other odd-indexed Fibonacci numbers.

Although 89 is not a Lychrel number in base 10, it is unusual that it takes 24 iterations of the reverse and add process to reach a palindrome. Among the known non-Lychrel numbers in the first 10000 integers, no other number requires that many or more iterations. The palindrome reached is also unusually large: 8813200023188.[4]

There are exactly 1000 prime numbers between 1 and 892=7921. [5]
