Get Younger by using Hexadecimal


by Jake McMillan

If you are around the age of 32 or 48, then you should definitely learn about hexadecimal as it will make your age sound younger.

Don’t worry, you don’t need to be an expert mathematician to understand it or figure it out. It is just a different numbering system that means if you are 32 in our normal decimal system you are 20 in hexadecimal! If you are 48 years old, you are 30 in hexadecimal. Good huh?

32 = 20
33 = 21
34 = 22
35 = 23
36 = 24
37 = 25
38 = 26
39 = 27
40 = 28
41 = 29

48 = 30
49 = 31
50 = 32
51 = 33
52 = 34
53 = 35
54 = 36
55 = 37
56 = 38
57 = 39

You will notice that I left out 42 to 47 above, this is because hexadecimal (also known as Base 16) starts to incorporate letters, A to F, before going up the next level of units, e.g. 42 = 2A, 43 = 2B, 44 = 2C, 45 = 2D, 46 = 2E, 47 = 2F.

It’s definitely a bit geeky, but it means you can give your age as younger and not be lying!
