### Re: What do you think?

I experimented with mean and mode to get approximate values.
Can we numerically solve the simultaneous equations?

Hi gAr;

I am sorry, but on this one Mr anonimnystefy has left me dumber than a burned out stump. Apparently his method has fried my brain. I am so confused I can not solve 3 + x = 9. Can you show me what you want done? You can use codecogs for the latexing.

Hi bobbym,

Don't worry!
I was trying to solve for the mode and mean:
l*(1-1/k)^(1/k) = 7
l*gamma(1+1/k) = 4084571/559872

No, when I do 4, the numbers are in that table!

Hi gAr

See you later!

Hi bobbym

I think the GF coefficients are Stirling numbers of the second kind!

Sorry, no, those are not Stirling numbers. False alarm!

### Re: What do you think?

To make sure I am doing this right. The notation of

[x^3]{1 + x + x^2 + 10x^3 + x^4}

returns 10, yes?
