Re: Difficult algebra manipulation help!Ok thanks I got the same as you when I just expanded this. #27 20121129 08:00:04
Re: Difficult algebra manipulation help!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. #28 20121129 08:06:51
Re: Difficult algebra manipulation help!Shouldn't it be 3bub on the bottom ? #29 20121129 08:12:47

Re: Difficult algebra manipulation help!I know, but on the thing you posted, the denominator you got ub3b and I have 3bub #31 20121129 08:25:25
Re: Difficult algebra manipulation help!You should notice that I have a q^L in the partial answer. That is because it is not done yet. 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. #32 20121129 08:28:48
Re: Difficult algebra manipulation help!I know we are not done, but on the expression you just posted for qh.... at the bottom you have b(u3) and I get b(3u), this is what I am talking about. #33 20121129 08:33:18
Re: Difficult algebra manipulation help!You mean on the step I just did or on the final answer? 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. #34 20121129 08:37:25
Re: Difficult algebra manipulation help!
On the step you just did #35 20121129 08:45:05
Re: Difficult algebra manipulation help!Could just be a sign change. Let me see your answer. 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.
