Re: Series

Tell me one of the easier approaches.

Impossible, I did not find any easy way except the logarithmic law.

That guy? Do they teach nothing today? Just dry mathematics and none of the flavor of the subject? Is this why humans are so bad at math? You are not pulling my leg are you?

And look at the last post on the last page,jst in case you miss it.

Looks like I was too late.

Logarithmic law? Let me search it up.

It will do you no good with the problem but it is interesting.

Re: Series

There are so many things named Logarithmic Law on the net,so I cannot know which one you are reffering to. Could you tell me?

And what about Goldbach? What does he have to do with anything?

Re: Series

Look up Bensfords law or rule.

Christian Goldbach was an amateur mathematician. Not very good. Yet he was able to come up with a problem that stumped Euler and every mathematician since. It is easy to invent problems that you or no one else will be able to solve.

Re: Series

I will look it up.

You are talking about his conjecture,right? Who came up with those two problems you posted?

Re: Series

I actually know about the Benfords law,but I didn't remember it. Can you somehow calculate the number of digts of that number?

I do not know the answer to that. Used up a lot of brain cells working on it though.

You really want to know?

I can not answer that without a story. You do not like stories. You seem rather on the impatient side.

Re: Series

One of the problems solution was so complicated that even after it was explained to me by Robert Israel and someone else I still could not understand it.

Shuffle a deck and lay it out on a table face up in a line. What is the chance that 3 adjacent cards are the same suit?

Here is a problem with an even simpler statement:

"Double a cube."
