Re: Generating Functions

Let me know when you get an 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: Generating Functions

Why would you use 6's? You are looking at the sums of the numbers.

Sorry for deleting the post smile I realized why my code is wrong.

What are you getting for 5? I get 295/432.

Re: Generating Functions

Unfortunately,my code runs n*sqrt(n) complexity,and in Maxima it would seem that thar is a lot. The poor system cannot handle such complexities.

Not that code. I wrote another to count coeffs with prime powers of x.

Re: Generating Functions

So the lab needs this to launch that rocket. Are you going to say, in some axiomatic systems it is .5 and in some other axiomatic systems it is 0.8688109167166945582799121192248256736356853859332611538240134956811165240517393603026999224948087276?

Or are you going to say I can not do it because my computer is too slow?
