Barbosa - 12-31-2010 Happy GB(125) Re: 11111011011 - John B. Smitherman - 12-31-2010 Yes, Happy MMXI! John Re: 11111011011 - Gerson W. Barbosa - 12-31-2010 Didn't you mean 103.3034120706 ? Thanks, anyway! Re: 11111011011 - Martin Pinckney - 12-31-2010 No, I meant to express the number in logarithmic form. Re: 11111011011 - Walter B - 12-31-2010 Then I'd like 7.60638738977 better - it's simply more natural ;) Re: Happy New Year - Ren - 12-31-2010 Quote: Happy GB(125) I'm sorry, I don't get this... Will some kind soul explain? Ren dona nobis pacem P.s. Happy New Year to forum members! Re: Happy New Year - Walter B - 12-31-2010 2011 ENTER 125 / FP 125 * results in 11 corresponding to the "digit" B. 2011 ENTER 125 / IP results in 16 ... spero pax datum est 8) Edited: 31 Dec 2010, 12:58 p.m. Re: Happy New Year - Ken Shaw - 12-31-2010 Base 125. G represents 16. B represents 11. (G*125^1)+(B*125^0) = 2011. Re: Happy New Year - Marcus von Cube, Germany - 12-31-2010 So we can likewise use base 250 and get 8B(250) or even simpler 11(2010) Edited: 31 Dec 2010, 1:07 p.m. Re: 11111011011 - Martin Pinckney - 12-31-2010 Walter, I saved that one for you! Re: Happy New Year - Martin Pinckney - 12-31-2010 Clever, indeed! Re: Happy New Year - Gerson W. Barbosa - 12-31-2010 Yes, but somehow I thought GB would look better :-) Happy New Year! Gerson Barbosa. Re: Happy New Year - Marcus von Cube, Germany - 12-31-2010 You can't do that with M v and C. ;) At least I can't. Re: Happy New Year - Eric Smith - 12-31-2010 Happy New Decade! Re: Happy New Year - Gerson W. Barbosa - 12-31-2010 In only three years we'll reach MC(91). We'll have to wait a little longer for MVC(32), though. :-) Edited: 31 Dec 2010, 2:02 p.m. Re: Happy New Year - Walter B - 12-31-2010 Ok, I think I've got a chance to repeat my wishes in another base: Happy WB(62.5) Re: Happy New Year - Gerson W. Barbosa - 12-31-2010 Quote: Happy WB(62.5) Yet another utility of non-integer bases! Re: Happy New Year - Martin Pinckney - 12-31-2010 Quite right! Re: 11111011011 - Ángel Martin - 01-01-2011 you can always tell when there's fond friendship in here :-) Feliz Año Nuevo to all. ÁM Re: Happy New Year - Xavier A. (Brazil) - 01-01-2011 Quote: even simpler 11(2010) I like this: simplicity relative to base. Une bonne année à tous! (Fbase) Re: 11111011011 - Thomas Okken - 01-01-2011 Happy 2002220.01220002... Re: Happy New Year - Dieter - 01-01-2011 Well, the one or other RPN-user might prefer to write this as... ```2011 ENTER 125 RMDR => 11 = B 2011 ENTER 125 INT/ => 16 = G ``` I love all those numeric functions that make things more elegant, more precise or just shorter. :-) However, in this case the final solution of course is writing "2011" as a base-2011-number: a simple "10". B-) Dieter Re: 11111011011 - Eddie W. Shore - 01-01-2011 Happy New Year everyone! Re: 11111011011 - Iqbal - 01-01-2011 From Trinidad and Tobago Happy New Year everyone. Re: 11111011011 - Chuck - 01-01-2011 I'm a little late for the New Year, but happy 11:11:11 1/1/11. Re: 11111011011 - Dave Shaffer (Arizona) - 01-01-2011 I can hardly wait until November 11! Re: 11111011011 - Jean-Michel - 01-01-2011 Happy New Year 2011 Bonne Annee 182 ( base 41 ) Re: 11111011011 - Norman Dziedzic - 01-03-2011 Also Happy: 157+163+167+173+179+181+191+193+197+199+211 (11 consecutive prime numbers) Shamelessly lifted from this site: http://republicofmath.wordpress.com/2011/01/01/happy-mathematical-new-year-2011-is-the-sum-of-11-consecutive-prime-numbers/ Re: 11111011011 - bill platt - 01-03-2011 That's pretty clever.

Re: Happy New Year - Dieter - 01-03-2011 Quote: A bit trivial, don't you think so? Well... a bit late maybe. I later realized someone else had that idea with 2011 = 112010 a few hours earlier. #-) Dieter Re: Happy New Year - Don Shepherd - 01-03-2011 Base 2011 means you have 2,011 unique symbols to represent numbers. What are the other 2009 symbols? : )
