Re: coins problemhi ran, Second based on value of coins Multiply the first by 2 and subtract the result from the second Now if 73 was in the 3x table that would give H and F would quickly follow. But you cannot have H not a whole number so I'm stuck. Bob You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #3 20130604 20:55:35
Re: coins problemHi; 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.
