Re: Whats my line?

I did not because technically it is an illegal question. It does not have a yes or no answer.


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: Whats my line?

Probably they would have tossed you off the show for bending the rules but here we are more liberal. Also as I have stated earlier, you will not guess that guys occupation even with 10^40 -1 more guesses.

Yes, you may. Of course, Bob may object to such liberality.

Well of course I will. When you run out again we will talk about setting some limits on the amount of guesses.

Re: Whats my line?

Yes, but I think that is called cheating. Do your instructors give you hints?

A better question is with a 10^40 - 1 question limit you want hints too?

and also imply we will still not guess in 10^40 -1 questions.

yes,my "instructors" do give me some hints.not all but some.

well you said we wouldn't guess it even if we had that many questions,so i think it's pretty reasonable to give us at least a small hint.

Re: Whats my line?

If I give a small hint the game is over. Besides you are not the only one playing. Maybe Bob does not want a hint. Also, I have given tons of hints.

I'm still up for the challenge.  But my brain will only take so much. 

I have three 'help' problems pending, awaiting my solution; one over a year old.

I feel you want us to solve this one soon.

Re: Whats my line?

Possibly, but it is not his concern.

If you are overextended then come back to this later. It will still be here but it is not important.
