What is the next number in the following sequence? Take that number and count the number of prime numbers leading up to the number. That is my age. Number sequence => 6,11,26,57,110, ?
Alternatively: The Mantissa of my age, rounded to 5 bits precision is 1.01011. The Exponent, in 3 bits, is 101. That is my age.
I have no idea what the alternative version means, but if I correctly figured out the pattern, the next number is 185, and there are 42 prime numbers leading up to 185. If I was incorrect on the pattern, I have no idea how old you are.
For myself, I'm 43. First console was a 2600 that I either got as a hand-me-down from my cousins, or I bought from my cousins at a garage sale. I think both happened (from different cousins) but I don't know which was first - that was somewhere around 1987 or 1988. I switched to PC gaming from about 1990 to 1994, then bought a Genesis. I've only ever bought 3 console brand new - the Genny, an N64, and a PS4. Otherwise everything else has been purchased used, with great success. The Genny and N64 are my favorite eras of gaming, no doubt.
