Re: Bafflers?

So you do know him. Just as I thought.


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

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Bafflers?

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

Re: Bafflers?

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.
