Re: complete square.

You have 2 x^2's.


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.

Re: complete square.

Hi jacks

3 is the only one in the first 100 000 positive integers. If we allow non-negative integers as well, there are also 0 and 1. Those are the only ones I can find, and I'd say the only ones that are the solutions.


The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't.
