**mathematics**, **programming**, **Python**, #factor, #factorize, #factors, #prime, #prime factorization, #unique factors

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 and (excluding the commutative property).For example, and that is the only way to multiply prime numbers to get to 𝟦𝟤.

**games**, **programming**, **Pygame**, **Python**, #bird, #clone, #flappy, #flappy bird, #game clone, #pixel, #pixel game, #pixel-themed, #pixelated

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.

**mathematics**, #generating, #prime formula, #primes

**(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 calculates the 𝑛-th prime.

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