Integer systemCan anybody solve the system IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations. #2 20051205 00:10:05
Re: Integer systemWhat is the  for? Is it a mathematical symbol? Last edited by rickyoswaldiow (20051205 00:10:15) Aloha Nui means Goodbye. #3 20051205 00:39:40
Re: Integer systema, b, x, and y = 0 is a solution, though uninteresting. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #4 20051205 02:19:54

Re: Integer systemWhat you're basically looking for is two pythagorean triplets that go: "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #6 20051205 07:45:41
Re: Integer system
Just being used to "group" the two equations together  more typographic than mathematic. If it was x that would mean absolute value. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #7 20051205 16:29:08
Re: Integer systemMore colouricaly, we search for 4 squares such the sum of first and second is equal to third and the sum of second and third is equal to fourth. So we can make a generalized question. Does the system: Last edited by krassi_holmz (20051205 16:31:08) IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations.
