Re: Make 9,999 using 9 ninesIn 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 20130524 14:10:38

Re: Make 9,999 using 9 ninesHi Bobby, WA didn't like that one (can't think logically, I suppose). M first said "General::ovfl: Overflow occurred in computation", but then it gave the answer 9999 anyway. "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do.
