Re: See if you can solve thisI don't think that can be done, unless you allow multiple letters to take the same value. But then that would make it too easy. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #7 20070325 16:06:53

Re: See if you can solve thisHi landof+; 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. #9 20111211 10:36:25

Re: See if you can solve thisWith this one LB took 10x longer than 7. That's probably not too bad, given that I had to include the permutation function in the program as it's not inbuilt...unlike 7.

Re: See if you can solve thisHi phrontister;
Actually, no.
Gentler? Hah! Many times have they ripped my still beating heart out of my chest and spat on it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
