Re: What do you think?Do you see the pattern that all the solutions have? 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. #27 20091224 14:35:20

Re: What do you think?Hi Bobby,
Must be my twin brother  we think alikn (sic). I hadn't seen that site before  some interesting characters there! "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do."  Ted Nelson #32 20091224 22:50:35
Re: What do you think?Hi phrontister;
No one interesting over there. 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. #33 20091225 11:25:31
Re: What do you think?Hi Bobby,
Yes...I'm losing interest. There seems to be only one genuine bogus imposter there  not very exciting. "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do."  Ted Nelson #34 20091228 04:18:50

Re: What do you think?Hi phrontister;
I am in the same spot. 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. #42 20100107 20:17:06

Re: What do you think?Hi gibbo;
Not all multiples of 23 will yield all nines. The next number that yields all nines after 23 is: 23 000 000 000 000 000 000 00 23 Here is another problem: This one is so, so. An urn contains 15 balls. There are only 2 different colors the balls can have, red and orange. There are at least 3 of each color in the urn. Picking 3 balls without replacement. the probability that all of the picked ones are red is the same as the probability that exactly one of them is orange. How many of the 15 balls are red? 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. #44 20100112 10:12:36
Re: What do you think?Problem #10: Person B says the probability that they have the same six numbers is: The textbook says .0000102 Who is right? 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. #45 20100114 20:44:58

Re: What do you think?Very good, that is correct. 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. #48 20100116 01:44:07
Re: What do you think?Suppose there are n red balls (). The probability of picking 3 red balls is . The probability of picking exactly one orange ball is . Hence, if they are equal, we have . #49 20100116 02:44:57
