Re: Bafflers?That could be a trick part of the question and maybe not. 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. #1077 20130130 09:49:59
Re: Bafflers?You mean, you want all 16 solutions? 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 #1078 20130130 09:53:48
Re: Bafflers?I am only aware of 2 solutions! How the heck can a problem with 16 solutions be elementary? 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. #1079 20130130 09:58:07
Re: Bafflers?12 of them are just rotations of 4 other, and of those 4, 2 are the mirror images of the other two, so, it's not as bad as it sounds...

Re: Bafflers?Are you aware you are using the top side ( one side ) of the square? 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. #1081 20130130 10:00:38
Re: Bafflers?Then 2 it is.

Re: Bafflers?Maybe only one... 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. #1083 20130130 10:04:28
Re: Bafflers?Nope, 2. Is that what you meant by orientation?

Re: Bafflers?I think the drawing indicates that E is outside of the square. 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. #1085 20130130 10:11:14
Re: Bafflers?So?

Re: Bafflers?Unus solutio! 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. #1087 20130130 10:21:16
Re: Bafflers?No, there are 2. One is shown in the picture and the other isn't...

Re: Bafflers?Hmmm is there another that keeps the proportions? 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.

Re: Bafflers?Duo solutio!

Re: Bafflers?Look at the drawing. The short side is on the left. Remember, 3:4:5. Unus solutio. 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. #1093 20130130 10:45:44
Re: Bafflers?In the other solution it is also on the left and all proportions are the same. Duo solutio!

Re: Bafflers?Hmmmm?! Talk is cheap as we say over here. You will now have to produce those two solutions. 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. #1095 20130130 10:52:51
Re: Bafflers?I will, but tomorrow or at the weekend.

Re: Bafflers?I am not seeing that. The little side BE will always be on the left and E will always be on top. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Bafflers?When did we agree not to take the solution inside the square?
