This can be said as a simplification of the saying that everything is relative and nothing is absolute.

I think this "theory" should be more of a hypothesis.

Also, it would be really great if this thread was deleted.

hi Alg Num Theory;

I should have mentioned that the numbers must be unequal.

Thank you for pointing that out.

I had posted the same thing twice in another thread. Would you please delete it?

Of the equation \(3x + 2y = 18\), how many positive integer solutions are there?

Is there any elegant solution to this problem rather than just brute force?

hi Grantimgriver;

I am sorry for not paying attention to the question. I am thus removing my post.

Suppose not all four integers a, b, c, d are equal. Start with

and repeatedly replace
. Then at least one number of the quadruple will eventually become arbitrarily large.

The solution to this problem is:

be the quadruple after n iterations and it has

From the equation for

However I saw this result, can anyone explain how is it so?

Explain how this is so:

And explain what this statement means:
The distance of the points

from the origin increases without bound, which means that at least one component must become arbitrarily large.
How is it necessary that one component would become large if the distance increases?

Note: This is Example 5 of first chapter of Arthur Engel's Problem Solving Strategies.

Does Combinatorics qualify as an "advanced topic" here?
[Note: It is taught is in high school level(enumerative)]

Will using this formula in the code have a lesser complexity than the code originally posted?

\pi = 4 \sum_{k \geq 0} (-1)^k {1\over 2k + 1}

hi Benice;

Thanks for pointing out that the sone and stwo's would have been floats.

hi Agnishom;

That was not intentional. Thanks for pointing out.

However, can anyone please explain why the code was not working properly when I entered the datatype of sone and stwo as "int"?

#15 Re: Help Me ! » Letter-arranging » 2018-07-02 15:40:09

Can you please tell how the code will be looking?

#16 Re: Coder's Corner » Calculating Complexity in C++ » 2018-07-02 15:38:32

Yes. The run time or the execution time.

hi bob bundy;

For "not working properly", I mean that the program is getting frozen and not printing anything at all.
Can you please point out my code for bugs?

I have written a code in C++ for calculating the approximate value of

based on the formula:

#include <iostream>

double CalculatePi(int acc)
    int sone;
    int stwo;
    double pione = 0;
    double pitwo = 0;
    for (sone = 1; sone < acc; sone += 4) {
        pione = pione + 1/sone;
    for (stwo = 3; stwo < acc; sone += 4) {
        pitwo = pitwo - 1/stwo;
    double potentialpi;
    potentialpi = pione + pitwo;
    std::cout << potentialpi * 4 << std::endl;
    return 0;

int main()
    std::cout << "Enter accuracy: ";
    int accuracy;
    std::cin >> accuracy;
    return 0;

However, this code is not working properly and is not returning anything when I am inputting "acc"(for accuracy) more than 2.
Can anyone please help me out here?

Can anyone please provide a detailed solution for this problem?

All the letters of the word 'EAMCOT' are arranged in different possible ways. Find the number of arrangements in which no two vowels are adjacent to each other

Is there any program for solving this? If yes, please provide the code.

Do we count only the unlike terms and state them only as terms?

#23 Re: Help Me ! » Monomial, Binomial, Trinomial or none of these? » 2016-05-01 03:06:25


See this algebraic expression:

4x +9x
It is a binomial.

When it is written 13x, it is a monomial.

Then what type of expression is this?

Hi bobbym;

In my book of Computer Science(Now I am in 7th Grade), the Russian method is taught, i think it is quite easier.

I am new to coding and I did not understand the meaning of module.
