I copied and pasted it from M. Probability of error < .003%. This happens to me over there not frequently but often enough to make me want to go on a reppie hunt.

Copying is a manual job. It might be possible that you accidentally forgot to select the last 9. Or maybe have inserted a couple of 3's at the end by mistake or due to excitement.

That has never happened to me.

Do you have any tries left?

Nope, I am out of tries. I saw what I pasted but then I used my browser a couple of times to shrink the page. Answers that long do not visually fit in the input box. That must have confused the site or whatever.

This is weird. Click on the 'reveal solution' and read the solution anyway.

I looked at the solutions just briefly.

Solutions? there is only one of them over there

Yes, I meant solution. There is just yours.

Ok, thank you.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

To be honest, I did not understand the M code

Then you are smarter than you know!

Nope! That is not what I meant. You are half way there to answering Britllemath 1.

Hmmm, you will have trouble solving it if you can not even find it.
