The Number 89 can be helpful in remembering articles.

For example: 
72(Power of President to grant pardon) + 89 = 161 (Power of Governor to grant pardon)
73(Extent of Executive power of Union) + 89 = 162 (Extent of Executive power of state)
76(Attorney General of India ) + 89                 = 165 (Advocate General of State)
87 (Special Address by the President) + 89   = 176 (Special address by the Governor)
110(definition of money bill) + 89                     = 199 (definition of money bill)

Similarly we can find for many other articles.

Note: Doesn’t work for all the articles of the constitution e.g 80, 112, 121,122,123 etc.
