Re: Is this cool with you?Hi gAr; 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. #177 20110119 17:11:02
Re: Is this cool with you?Hi bobbym, "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  Buddha?

Re: Is this cool with you?I have a method that works for one open street. I cannot as of yet generalize to more. The literature is also sketchy. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: Is this cool with you?Yes, I too could not find much information regarding this.

Re: Is this cool with you?Yes, for every possible weight that can be on the left pan. That complicates it. If it were just a constant weight on the left pan then it would be an ordinary generating function. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Is this cool with you?Oh, can generating function be used for constant weight on one pan? Please tell me about it...

Re: Is this cool with you?Enter into Sage: And expand the answer. What you will get is the number of solutions of: 30 a + 41 b + 67 c = r with 0 ≤ a,b,c ≤ 10.

Re: Is this cool with you?What it tells you for instance is that there is only 1 way using the 10 of each type to make a 340 gm weight. Because the coefficient in front of x ^ 340 is 1. You can also say that the number of partitions of 340 from the set of 10 30's and 10 41's and 10 67's equals 1. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Is this cool with you?A teacher gives a test. No partial credit is given. There are 9 5 point questions, 7 4 point questions and 3 9 point questions. A student who has a 57% chance of passing, a 21% chance of getting between 80  90 and 2% chance of getting better than 90 claims he got a 93. What are the odds of that happening?

Re: Is this cool with you?That is okay with me but I changed the original problem so anyone else will not hangup. So you can put the answer to the correct one or that instead, whatever you like. You have a free pass to do whatever you want. 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.
