Prove composite(This is a problem I made up myself.) Last edited by JaneFairfax (20090309 14:54:48) #2 20090309 17:59:00
Re: Prove composite
But I don't think that is the solution you were looking for Last edited by Identity (20090309 18:00:59) #3 20090309 22:43:05
Re: Prove compositeThat was indeed part of the soluttion I was looking for. But the proof is not complete yet. #4 20090310 06:59:09
Re: Prove compositeI did a question similar to this a few days ago. The first part was pretty much Jane's question, but without the k included. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #5 20090310 08:40:35
Re: Prove compositeHere is the solution to your problem. Last edited by JaneFairfax (20090310 08:56:38) #6 20090310 08:53:56
Re: Prove compositeCalm down, I didn't mean to derail the topic. I decided I'd post the new problem because: Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #7 20090310 10:46:14
Re: Prove compositeThanks. You would be wrong to suppose my question is almost solved – there is still some work to be done. Identity did not use the condition , which is a crucial condition. Otherwise you could have . Last edited by JaneFairfax (20090310 11:08:00) #8 20090315 02:36:21#9 20090418 06:55:12
Re: Prove compositeHi Jane; Last edited by bobbym (20090418 06:57:07) 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. #10 20090418 06:57:57

Re: Prove compositeSorry Jane, I was being nosy. Thanks for the invite. I already do a lot of lurking there. Last edited by bobbym (20090420 18:30:43) In mathematics, you don't understand things.
