Re: Bafflers?Ah, okay! 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 #1052 20121225 06:28:41
Re: Bafflers?Yes, I did it in a different way. 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. #1053 20121225 06:31:05
Re: Bafflers?Well, is it the same as mine, or not?

Re: Bafflers?My solution consists of using geogebra with an increment of .0000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 at this small increment quantum math takes over and even though that is over 10^43 points it is done instantaneously. Then I put the 10^43 values into the spreadsheet and curve fit. Because in quantum math 10^43 equals infinity the fit was exact. Got the same answer you did. 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.

Re: Bafflers?I think my way is simpler...

Re: Bafflers?You should have seen geogebra animating through the 10^43 points in no time at all. The GUI changed colors and its shape changed as it warped into the 5 and 6th dimensions. To see the spreadsheet holding 10^43 numbers was truly awe inspiring. In quantum math geogebra is a brute. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Bafflers?Smoke came out of the tower and the monitor began to phase out of this universe. Quantum mathematics! It is faaaaaantaaaastic. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: Bafflers?Actually, none of that is true. I had the answer from the book. I just had to look at it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Bafflers?Really? None of that is true? Well, you sure had me fooled there!

Re: Bafflers?I am sorry then. Now you know the truth. 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.

Re: Bafflers?Yes, thank you for being honest.

Re: Bafflers?Honest is the best policy. Like my dear ole pappym used to say. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Bafflers?Okay, I will see if I can post one. The other's are not too difficult, you are capable of solving them. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Bafflers?I have to agree with A on this one. Looking at the graph of points whose coordinates satisfy the given equation, I see that the sum of the two coordinates has a minimun of infjnity and a maximum of +infinity...

Re: Bafflers?Hi; Supposing the path of the flight was 15x² + 16x y + 10y² = 10 and the safety range was 2.045983018410 < 2x + 2y < 2.045983018410 what is your prediction then?
