Big mistakes? What about little ones? (I'm not an avid slammer, in any case. )

Sorry, it's been a while since my maths classes back in college (and believe me, I wasn't even paying attention then either).

Anything to the power 0 is 1 (doi!) and my table is showing the powers of 17.

Yours is just the more straight forward mathematical way to write it down.

Mine is the more graphical.

Code:

`289 17 1`

------------------

0 2 1

2*17 = 34

1*1 = 1

34+1 = 35

.. Now 36, would mean:

36 - 1 = 35.

Half of 35 = 17.5..

So base 17.5 ... which doesn't REALLY work, cos it's not a whole number.

You'd have to go for something like "18" (base 28)

So the answer for NEXT year is: there is NO base that makes 36 become 21

Can you work out how old she is?

35? [(17^1 * 1) + (17^0 * 1)]

Does she have to be 21 every year?

My sister recently had a birthday. She got two cards saying '21st' on it, and then 'in base 17!' on the inside. Blasted nephew stole my tradition! (Been doing it for years!) Can you work out how old she is? What base will I need next year? (I know these, just testing maths, muhahahha)

Oh and if you couldn't follow that complex math, I am 32.
