@MIF , Activity:Drawing squaresWhat's the formula for the number of those squares???

Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squaresHi anonimnystefy; 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 20120212 05:39:46
Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squaresit's on MIF page.

Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squaresnope.imma gonna.

Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squaresWhoa! How about letting me see you sequence first? The one you got empirically. 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. #8 20120212 07:55:18

Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squaresNow you actually did those by hand? Drawing tiny little squares until your fingers bled. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squaresdidn't do it for 6,but after finding the 3rd differences i saw that they were all squares.but i can easily check for 6.

Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squaresFirst things first. I notice your sequence is shifted. You can adjust that. 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. #12 20120212 08:06:55
Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squaresi used 1x1 grid to be just a dot.seemed more logical.

Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squaresHmmmm, but the problem as outlined uses the convention of counting interior squares and not lattice points. Since we are counting squares do you not now think that it is more consistent to set the problem up in terms of squares? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squaresok,then just shift the whole sequence by one to the left.

Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squaresKayrect! Now what would you do to go about getting a formula, remember to shift your list first. 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. #16 20120212 08:44:29

Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squares
From here. 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. #18 20120212 09:10:54
Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squaresbut it's better to expand that.get a better form for working with it.

Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squaresMaybe, but that form makes you look like a combinatorial genius. People will be in awe of you. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squaresmaybe,but i know that you're a combinatorial genius,so you don't have to prove it.

Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squaresWhen I was 4 I was rated with the IQ of a genius. But now that I am 9, I am rated as an imbecile. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squaresi'm happy for you.

Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squaresThanks, I am happy for me too. Now people come by and pat me on the head and tell me there will someday be a cure. 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. #24 20120213 03:11:01
Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squareswhat about an mxn grid,i.e a rectangular grid?

Re: @MIF , Activity:Drawing squaresFor that I have: I do not know if it is correct. Perhaps you would like to test it? Break time! Pass me the pancakes! In mathematics, you don't understand things.
