Re: Bafflers?

Hi;


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.

Then I think you are done with those. Oh wait, the two triangle one had an additional question that I asked a couple of posts back.

Hmmm. Yes, that might work. I wonder where we could find a ready made geogebra demonstration. One already done for us. What a great thing that would be.

Re: Bafflers?

Wait, why would we need a Geogebra demo anyway?

Btw, I cannot figure out what's wrong with my solution to http://projecteuler.net/problem=8. I am getting 78246.

Doesn't 9^5 = 59049?
