Today's my birthday! (corrected version)


I appear to have misremembered my age by a few years. Thanks to my brother for bringing this error to my attention.

There's a number. Square it. Double that. Add 8. That's my age.


Same number. Add 2. Square that. Add 9.
That's my age.


How old am I?

Hmmm, the first number is a prime, and the second number is a prime raised to a prime. Sounds like you're in the prime of your life. Uhhhhh, yes I'm a huge nerd.

Get nerdier!

I had this puzzle on my website and last year suddenly a dozen French high-school students e-mailed, most with the correct answer.

Don't tell me about prime numbers (at least not today).

Tell me how old I am!

MIKE and KWAK solved the quadratic equation and know how old I am! Pizza slices for all! (They e-mailed me privately cause they didn't want to blab the answer in public.)
