Find the missing numberSo I was clearing out my classroom yesterday and came across a cryptic number puzzle. Unfortunately I couldn't find the solution and it's been so long I can't remember it. Even google couldn't help me! #2 20110313 01:01:31
Re: Find the missing numberIn 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. #3 20110313 01:05:13
Re: Find the missing numberThanks, I can stop tearing my hair out now. Maybe I'd have seen it if i'd bothered to write down the differences rather than working them out in my head. #4 20110313 01:10:05

Re: Find the missing numberI wanted to ask you about that. Where do you keep your notes? It seems that you have in there everything that you have ever worked on on this forum.

Re: Find the missing numberI gloss in books. 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. #7 20120503 10:27:22

Oh boy! 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. #11 20120503 12:11:21
Re: Find the missing numberBut you said you were gonna post one.

Re: Find the missing numberThey do not come out of thin air. I have to find one or create it. What type of problem is this? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
