Could be those darn reptilloids...

Well, you said you were hacked. Should we report that to MIF?

I do not even remember the post.

Well, if you were hacked, it might be an issue.

I do not see why. I do not like quantum computing or any quantum qaboobly doo.

Should we report it to MIF, then?

Kaboobly doo! I was obviously hacked,

I will go with 3.

By the way:

My solution consists of using geogebra with an increment of .0000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 at this small increment quantum math takes over and even though that is over 10^43 points it is done instantaneously. Then I put the 10^43 values into the spreadsheet and curve fit. Because in quantum math 10^43  equals infinity the fit was exact. Got the same answer you did.

Combinatorial explosion is the enemy of everything we do. We can:

1) Come up with a method of permutation generation that does not generate them all, just the ones we need.

2) Compile the function or write part of it in some other language.

3) Use the first couple of values to figure out an analytical answer or an asymptotic one.

What can we do about those?

I have never heard of it.

The program is not fast enough for the last couple.

You are supposed to know. You cane up with it. But it was for a geometry problem, so I am not sure if it is applicable.

Try P(team 1 picks 11th).

When it is done right, it looks nasty.

What the heck is quantum math?

It does not always look nasty.

Hey, I just remembered. It's been a long time since we last used quantum math! Maybe we should try that?

Functional style always looks nasty.

Combinatorial explosion - it is nasty.  I will do one.
