Re: Iterations!!!

It is much too large to post and it has a very interesting story connected to it.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Iterations!!!

The whole process is huge. Whereas the Fibonacci recurrence has 2 terms this one has 1830 terms. The answer is close to a 6000 digit number!

Re: Iterations!!!

See that 42, that is the coefficient for x^11. As such it is an answer. If I can find the 10^100 number in that sequence I am home free...
