BADEs (Basic Arithmetic Digit Equations) became an official BAB (Basic Arithmetic Bit) object on 31 December 2016.

BADs (Basic Arithmetic Dates)...

1/1/17: the numbers are 1 1 17 ...1 = 1^17 [classic; numbers used in-order] ...sqrt(17 - 1) -1 = 3 [badCardinalityEval; there are 3 numbers] ...ceil(sqrt(17)) - 1 - 1 = 3 [another badCardinalityEval] 1/2/17: the numbers are 1 2 17 ...sqrt(sqrt(17 - 1)) = 2 ...17 % 2 = 1BADEs (Basic Arithmetic Digit Equations)...

the number is: 2017 ... 2^0 = 1^7 [classic; numbers used in-order] ... 2 + 0 = cuberoot(1 + 7) [classic; numbers used in-order] ... (2 + 0!)! + 1 = 7 [classic; numbers used in-order] ... 2 - 1 = 7^0 ... 0 + 7 % 2 = 1 ... 7 % (1 + 2) = 0! ... (2 + 0 + 1)! * 7 = 42 [bade42Eval; 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"]
