Today is the $56^{th}$ day of the year.

$56 = 2^3 \times 7$

$56$ is the number of times that $11$ can be partitioned. A partition of a number is the number of different ways that the number can be written as a sum of integers where the order is not significant. Thus $11$ has the following partitions:

1. $11$
2. $10 + 1$
3. $9 + 2$
4. $8 + 3$
5. $7 + 4$
6. $6 + 5$
