Re: Is this cool with you?Hi gAr; 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. #377 20110324 04:01:14
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." #378 20110324 04:03:49

Re: Is this cool with you?Ok, I'll be online for about 45 minutes more, then it's my EOD.

Re: Is this cool with you?That means you are ready? I can hold it till your tomorrow or I can start posting it now... In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Is this cool with you?Yes, I'm always ready!

Re: Is this cool with you?New Problem! with a,b,c,d all positive and different and all integers. A says) Yes, I can and without a computer again! B says) My method is better because it only uses algebra. C says) I did not get any answers in integers. I do not think there is one. D says) You are right C there are no solutions. Imagine we are right and the two geniuses are wrong! 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. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #383 20110324 04:30:52
Re: Is this cool with you?Ah, I was thinking about the possibility when you posted the question. "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." #384 20110324 04:32:24
Re: Is this cool with you?This one will require a trick or two. Do not worry until yesterday I did not know how. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Is this cool with you?Ok, I'll see where I can reach. "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." #386 20110324 04:57:04

Re: Is this cool with you?New Problem! C says) Mine is shorter but it only works for n < 8. D says) I have a shorter proof. A says) I do not think so and by the way, B's proof is garbage.
