Yes I know, I have had that feeling about everyone for a long time. But I do not mind.

Well here is a riddle then. 10 times some power members age + 2 is my age.

hi mathgogocart

Ingenious. But don't expect it to be that easy.

Firstly, he didn't say which power member, just some ......

Secondly, he carefully omitted to declare which number base this calculation is in.

Nice avatar btw.

Well, it is certainly not in a base less than 10, because that would be too many years (102 yrs. for base 9 if the member is 9...).

And, I don't think the base is greater than 36, because the is no standard notation for greater bases...

Yes, I wonder what base he was thinking of also. I will ask him the next time he is in town.

I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

@First-,julian would be too mujch because i think he is uh...13? 13*10=130 which would be too much unless he is a supercenturian

2-oh,i forgot of the base.unfortunally i am not good in base 13 or something
