How do you use only 4 candles to celebrate a 15-year-old?
Take this example. Notice the second and sixth candle are lit (or ON in computers). That first candle reads to the computer as 2 dots. Candles 3-5 are OFF. The dots behind them don’t add to the sum. If the dots follow the rules, they go 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, and 32 dots. Therefore 2 + 32 are the ON dots. Age is 33. Age 15 would be the 4 candles on the left all ON.
