a bit of an issueI couldn't go private with this issue (because I don't have Private messaging yet) Why did the chicken cross the Mobius Band? To get to the other ...um...!!! #2 20090801 07:17:55
Re: a bit of an issueHi wintersolstice; Last edited by bobbym (20090801 14:51:03) In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20090801 09:26:54

Well maybe if I could do pictures of chains (I don't don't how!) the 1100 chain puzzle would be hard to draw without the ellipses. Why did the chicken cross the Mobius Band? To get to the other ...um...!!! #5 20090801 22:49:22
Re: a bit of an issuePictures: use any drawing program (from paint to photoshop. I like Inkscape myself) to create the image on your computer, and then upload it into your post.

Re: a bit of an issue
The thing is Soroban didn't use drawing software, they did it with the Maths cod, I was asking how to do that? Last edited by wintersolstice (20090802 00:29:37) Why did the chicken cross the Mobius Band? To get to the other ...um...!!! #7 20090802 09:14:50
Re: a bit of an issueTo see the latex code that made it, just click on the image. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #8 20090802 12:44:53
