Cool FunctionI've found a cool function: x^(x) How many times can you subtract 7 from 83, and what is left afterwards? You can subtract it as many times as you want, and it leaves 76 every time. ~Author Unknown #2 20110826 18:29:02
Re: Cool FunctionHi pisquared; 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. #3 20110826 20:42:05
Re: Cool FunctionI sketched it in a notebook with a pen. How many times can you subtract 7 from 83, and what is left afterwards? You can subtract it as many times as you want, and it leaves 76 every time. ~Author Unknown #4 20110826 20:48:59

Re: Cool FunctionI know, but I couldn't find a programme that doesn't cost money or actually works with the small details.
