Playing around with prime numbers, I created this simple factorization program.
The interesting thing about prime factors is that they are unique. There can only be one way to multiply prime numbers to get 𝑛 where $n\in\mathbb{N}$ and $n\geq 2$ (excluding the commutative property).For example, $2\cdot 3\cdot 7=42$ and that is the only way to multiply prime numbers to get to 𝟦𝟤.

This game is a clone of the famous international hit Flappy Bird.
You control the little pixel-bird, while it flaps through three different scenes and tries to avoid deadly pipes. Your score is measured by how many pipes you can pass.

## Controls

• ‘Escape’ pauses and resumes the game,
• ‘F1’ takes a screenshot,
• Up arrow key makes the bird flap.

# Prime-Generating Formula

(April Fools’!) I came up with this interesting prime-generating formula. It uses the constant 𝜉 and generates the primes in order!

The constant’s approximation.

The formula $p_n$ calculates the 𝑛-th prime.

The first few values for $p_n$ when starting with 𝑛 = 𝟢 are as follows.
