look up any word, like ethered:
 
1.
The following numbers ARE Numberwang: 1, 22, 7, 9, 1002, 2.3, 15, 109876567, 31 etc.

And these numbers are NOT Numberwang: 1, 11, 7, 9, 5667, 0.0009, 69, 5 etc.

There, that should clear that up for you.
The gameshow Numberwang was won with the unlikely Numberwang combination of 1 and 2.

The rules are fairly simple but the process for finding NumberWang is nearly impossible. The process for finding NumberWang used to take hours and hours to find because the formula was an entire 1400 page text book. Now, finding NumberWang is simple. You say a number that you think is NumberWang and the NumberWang Robot, Coloson, will answer for you. However during the early 1960's apearance of Coloson on TV, Coloson decided to take over the world and said "I am NumberWang, The world is NumberWang, therefore I am the world!" The makers of Coloson, who forsaw this event, installed a fail-safe. The only way to stop Coloson was to show it a picture of a chicken. Now Coloson is kept in the basement of the BBC TV Center. NumberWang is now a world phenomonon. It is on Austrailian TV, New Zealand TV and even American TV where instead of saying "Thats NumberWang!!" they say "Yes, That is a number..."
