Proof that shows Math is FunHi, #2 20121012 15:37:57
Re: Proof that shows Math is FunHi (infinity,infinity); 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. #3 20121012 17:02:03
Re: Proof that shows Math is FunInteresting idea with the proof by contradiction. "Let's assume that maths isn't fun..." #4 20121012 18:11:48

Re: Proof that shows Math is FunOK. I have a better one. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #6 20121013 01:09:57
Re: Proof that shows Math is FunGreat thinking guys! I never thought of using the actual meaning of fun in the proof. #7 20121013 05:33:05
Re: Proof that shows Math is Funhi (infinity,infinity) definition: definition: Let x = {devising the following proof} axiom 1. 2 = 1 + 1 axiom 2. 3 = 2 + 1 axiom 3. 4 = 3 + 1 rules of substitution apply associativity applies proof: 2 + 2 = 2 + (1 + 1) (by substitution and axiom 1) = (2 + 1) + 1 (associativity) = 3 + 1 (substitution and axiom 2) = 4 (substitution and axiom 4) therefore 2 + 2 = 4 It is self evident that Hope you like this.

Re: Proof that shows Math is FunHi Bob The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #11 20121013 06:52:58
Re: Proof that shows Math is Fun
And why is that?
Yup!

Re: Proof that shows Math is FunI see anonimnystefy has caught onto the interval notation. #13 20121013 09:57:14

Re: Proof that shows Math is Fun
I have gone to some length to prove that 2 + 2 = 4 You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #15 20121013 22:33:36
Re: Proof that shows Math is FunHmm... Funny Posts ... Great 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Proof that shows Math is FunBob, you have inspired me to get back to proofs. Thank you so much! Last edited by (infinity,infinity) (20121015 14:21:25) #18 20121014 18:22:29
Re: Proof that shows Math is FunOK. Good luck with that. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei
