# Benford’s Law (VIDEO! and ESSAY!)

The video is a lead-in to the written essay available below that explains Benford’s Law. In the video we prove, ever so swiftly(!), that about 5.8% of the powers of two begin with a seven! (And be the end of the video you will be able to prove that just under 10% of those actually begin with 77 and just under 10% of those with 777!) In the essay, we take our time and prove everything!
