Hi I brilliant members made this note because I think it would be fun and it will help us socialize a little I guess.So getting back to the point the challenge is to connect your age to any math related events or the periodic table etc.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science
related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should
explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments
should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .

Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.

Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

I am an element which has 6 allotropes(identified by each one's colour) and forms almost 10 acids( or oxoacids to be precise). I am also never found as a free element in earth. What am I?.......I am phosphorous!!!

Base (me) is a better base to write terminating decimals if you think about it. I am magnesium. I am a dozen. I am a composite number, the smallest number with exactly six divisors. I am also a highly composite number, the next one being 24. I am the first composite number of the form p^2q; a square-prime. I am an factor sum of 16. Accordingly, I am the first abundant number (in fact a superabundant number). Only 2 other square primes are abundant (18 and 20). Who am I? (These should be enough clues)

I am $\boxed{P}$, but in a week I shall be $\boxed{S}$. The lightest containing both of those elements is sulfanylidenephosphanide, which has the structure $[P-]=S$ (a phosphorus ion double bonded to a sulphur atom).

TopNewest@Mardokay Mosazghi, I too am Phosphorous but I will become Sulphur on $18^{\text{th}}$.

I am Gadol, which in Hebrew can mean, "great", or "hilarious", depending on who you ask. Look up the metal element that starts with gadol.

You spelt periodic wrong.

sorry going to edit it

I don't think you can.

Did not connect my age, but my birthday

$25/10/1997\ :\\ 2*5=10\\ 5^2=25\\$ Also $10$ is the first two digit number in any base.

My age is $16$ and nobody would be able to light a matchstick without me.

Also my name abbreviated is $mgh$ one of the most used Potential energies in Phsics.

In chemistry, $MgH_2$ is a potential Hydrogen Fuel Storer.

how to actually get the relation?

I am $\boxed{P}$, but in a week I shall be $\boxed{S}$. The lightest containing both of those elements is sulfanylidenephosphanide, which has the structure $[P-]=S$ (a phosphorus ion double bonded to a sulphur atom).
