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.

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?
