Re: Complete the series....

Hi Ganesh;

To (xliii) problem 68

I get n^3-n^2+n as the general term. So the next 2 terms are 301 and 456

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

Re: Complete the series....

hi Jane Fairfax

Cannot find the command to hide an answer.

So I'll follow a long tradition amongst mathematicians and make an anagram.

Is it dedelute ?

Whoops, yes I did.

What command do you use to hide things in boxes, please?

Re: Complete the series....

Hi JaneFairfax,

Thanks for the hide help.  But I've still not fully grasped it.  You can create a box which has a 'title' embedded in it. 

eg. 

but where do I put the hidden content?

Re: Complete the series....

Hi bobbym,

How are you today?

Thanks for the hide help.  That sorts it out for me.

With regard to JaneFairfax's Liverpool question,  I think she's set a tough one if you're in the USA. 

Back in July you advised me  "R. I. P. O. S. T. P."

So what happened to English soccer in the year ?

 

Even so, you're in for a lot of gooling.

Bob

Hi bob;

I'm alive.

Back in July you advised me  "R. I. P. O. S. T. P."

Yes, I did.

I think she's set a tough one if you're in the USA.

And I surmised that. But I won't be taking my own advice.
