### Benford's Law

Cont'd From Page 2

There are nine tables showing the groups. In these tables Group X includes all the suras containing a number of verses starting with the digit X

Thus, there are 30 suras in the Quran whose number of verses start with digit “1”, 17 suras with digit “2” and so on.  Looking into these tables immediately reveals that the distribution of digits almost accurately adheres to Benford’s law.(graph below).this pattern also conforms to mathematical miracle of the Quran.

30*1+17*2+3*12+4*11+5*14+6*7+7*8+8*10+9*5=437=19*23
