Re: Is this cool with you?Hi bobbym, "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  Buddha? "Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay." #352 20110323 11:32:19

Re: Is this cool with you?Ah, Ok. I forgot about it! Your memory is good.

Re: Is this cool with you?I just remembered that I could not do it either. It has been bothering me since then. I found it in the Tucker book and he did not solve it twice because it was even and then he moved it in later editions. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Is this cool with you?Oh, I see.

Re: Is this cool with you?Okay, I'll check.

Re: Is this cool with you?Works for all values I tried! Do you know how he derived it?

Re: Is this cool with you?I haven't seen many examples of recursion with more than one parameter. So cannot think about the derivation for this kind!

Re: Is this cool with you?Okay. it is harder than with one variable but there is a 2D block walk example that would help explain it. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: Is this cool with you?Hi; with a,b,c,d all positive and different. A says) Yes, I can and without a computer. B says) Yes, that is right and I did it too. C says) Well, well, well, both A and B agreeing and both wrong! D says) Yes, that is a first. You are right C there are no solutions. Can you find an answer? Can you find A or B's idea for full credit? 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.
