Your father-in-law should meet his optician

31

But one condition is wrong. '9 years back my age was a prime number', it should be 8 years back.

Right??

35 years young . Old enough to remember green screen monitors, the "ed" UNIX editor, twin floppy PC's running applications like SMART.

Darn. I wanted to pass off that number as my age for the well known reasons, and now I see you meant this question seriously.

There is no such number.

if n is a natural number and o is an odd number, then (n-o) is never a prime number.

So, if your age is x, then x-9 cannot be prime.

A prime number of years ago, my age was pi multipied by another prime.
Two years hence, it will be a fibonacci number.

huh? aren't the Natural Numbers the counting numbers???

so for example, let n = 8. 3 is an odd number, so let o = 3.

n-o = 8 - 3 = 5, a prime.

I'm 56. So I beat everybody so far except for Stan "Declines To State" James.


Paul beats my 54 with that.

How about time on the job? Same company since August, 1978. Green screens? We would have died for screens of any kind. I started with punch cards and a language that my company wrote because the first COBOL compiler was taking too long.

Ah yes, nothing can match the cry of anguish that was heard when some unfortunate soul in my FORTRAN class dropped his box of punch cards.
