Do what causes you the least harm. I am not that mad about it. But I would like to get my 100 points. I do not understand why after I was marked wrong the rating went down? It should have gone up. Arpad Elo is an imbecile.

#4 Re: Jokes » Experimental Mathematics Troll » Today 20:13:18

4 down from the top and 2 on the side.

#5 Re: Jokes » Experimental Mathematics Troll » Today 20:06:58

The answer is 6 and I was marked wrong!

#10 Re: Jokes » Experimental Mathematics Troll » Today 19:14:56

They have now marked my original answer correct and upgraded the value of the question to 100 pts.

Let me check mine. I am getting 11628 again.

#13 Re: Help Me ! » Permutations » Today 07:46:46

Let me check mine.

Hi Bob;

There are arrangements missing from your set.

G3 G2 G1 C3 C2 C1 and its permutations of the last 3 elements.

#15 Re: Help Me ! » Permutations » Today 05:25:05

I used Mathematica to do the counting for one way and used a generating function for another way.

#16 Re: Help Me ! » A question about limits » Today 05:21:14

That is the answer. I did not see that and assumed a function limit.

#17 Re: Help Me ! » A question about limits » Today 05:11:41

So why choose n as an integer?

#18 Re: Help Me ! » A question about limits » Today 05:01:46


Yes, that is true but notice that you also made the decision to treat n as an integer. If you did not then the limit would not exist.

If all you need is the quadratic equation solved then:

d = 1.622498999199199 round to the nearest penny we get 1.62 which is close to the current conversion.

#20 Re: Help Me ! » A question about limits » Today 04:33:48


Okay, thanks for the help.

#21 Re: Jokes » Experimental Mathematics Troll » Today 04:27:07

Okay, when you get it. Thanks for doing it.

#22 Re: Help Me ! » A question about limits » Today 04:17:09


But this is not a continuous function. It says a sequence limit, implying a discrete function. I am not trying to be a nit, the experts agree with your answer. I am just trying to see if I can understand the question like you do. Thanks.

#23 Re: Help Me ! » A question about limits » Today 03:56:33


Are you sure you are allowed to take the limit inside the sin() like that?

#24 Re: Jokes » Experimental Mathematics Troll » Today 03:39:20

Hi Bob;

Please write out all the solutions if you can.

#25 Re: Help Me ! » A question about limits » Today 03:20:29


I would say that limit does not exist.
