What is the chord angle?Hi; 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. #2 20120524 00:24:02

Re: What is the chord angle?But only the traditional methods can really prove 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: What is the chord angle?Actually, it was only with the use of a computer that the conjecture about there being 24 4 dimensional spheres tangent to one 4D sphere.

Re: What is the chord angle?Hi Agnishom;
Remember that line in post #1. That is one of the uses of software and computers. All in all, geogebra did well don't you think. Also, it was fun! Try it, it might even make you change your signature... 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.
