Re: what u think of this problemAnother question  has this been already proved or did you toss a random problem? #5 20050801 16:21:00

When we put x=1, Character is who you are when no one is looking. #7 20050801 18:54:52
Re: what u think of this problem
y=[1 ± √(1 + 224)]/8, actually. That means that y=2 or 1.75 and the original proof wanted x and y to both be natural, meaning that these values are disregarded. The same applies to your second post where x=1. Sorry! Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal.
