So you do know him. Just as I thought.

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.

That is correct but no experimental methods are allowed here ( in this case ). You must show the work.

Well the cube roots are gone when we cube a and b and when we sum those two-a**3 and b**3 the square roots are gone two so we are left with 2+2=4.

New problem:

You are given the following sequence and asked to find the gf. What do you do?

A) Feel sorry for yourself.

B) Curse creation.

C) Laugh uncontrollably.

D) Pass out.

E) Solve it.

Hint: The most satisfying answer is not E.
