Number theory #1I have an idea. Let this topic be the number theory QA topic. IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations. #2 20060207 19:40:53

Re: Number theory #1I've never seen rom either. Could we get a definition, krassi?
modulo, to be exact. But it is the same idea. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #6 20060208 09:38:09

Re: Number theory #1
for some k∈Z
Now let a + b = y^3 and k = x. Then: Plugging this back in...: So.... Which was to be shown. Last edited by Ricky (20060212 04:48:32) "In the real world, this would be a problem.

Re: Number theory #1Yea... I was hoping you wouldn't catch that. Last edited by Ricky (20060212 08:57:33) "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #13 20060220 01:26:17
Re: Number theory #1I know it but i want you to get it. IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations. #14 20060220 08:19:24
Re: Number theory #1Well, krassi...I think its safe to say that none of us came up with an answer and I've been really wanting to see the solution... The greatest challenge to any thinker is stating the problem in a way that will allow a solution. Bertrand Russell #15 20060220 09:13:32
Re: Number theory #1Give me till tuesday, I think I'm close, but I have a test in Advanced Calc and Modern Algebra that I got to get through first on monday.

Re: Number theory #1OK. I'll wait for some time. IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations. #17 20060223 11:18:00
Re: Number theory #1Alright, I'm bout ready to give up. It seems like I'm missing some fact that being 0 mod gives, but I can't seem to find it. Being divisible by a+b doesn't seem to be enough.
