Re: I stole Pythagoras's shoes!So, is there no other way than Geogebra? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: I stole Pythagoras's shoes!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 20130203 21:56:30
Re: I stole Pythagoras's shoes!But, would you explain it from the first principle? I mean, how does the software calculate it even? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun.

Re: I stole Pythagoras's shoes!
If it doesn't then how does it calculate the box? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: I stole Pythagoras's shoes!You take and draw a rectangle that encloses the tree. This is what the question asks for. Geogebra knows how to compute the lengths of the sides of any polygon you draw. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: I stole Pythagoras's shoes!So, you used Mathematica? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: I stole Pythagoras's shoes!Yes, I did it by hand with geogebra for about 12  13 iterations. Normally that would have taken 8192 squares to draw. But there is trick that reduces the problem down quite a bit. 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: I stole Pythagoras's shoes!Trick? Is it a mathematical trick or a programming one? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun.

Re: I stole Pythagoras's shoes!No just commonsense. It occurred to me that you only had to keep one branch of the tree going up, down, right and left. This saved much work.

Re: I stole Pythagoras's shoes!Is it really that tough even if you have things like Geogebra and Mathematica? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun.

Re: I stole Pythagoras's shoes!And would it be completely impossible if there was no mathematica or Geozebra? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun.

Re: I stole Pythagoras's shoes!No, people used C++, Java, Basic, Ruby, Mathematica, Python, Pari etc. Many of the solutions were a lot shorter than mine some were cleverer. No one used geogebra except me. That makes me very happy. 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: I stole Pythagoras's shoes!Sorry, just that the word brilliant and me do not go together. Sort of like putting a bed in an elevator, doesn't belong.
