A number problem.Hi; or No insight yet on the problem so we try a 4 digit number. One more a 5 digit number: We see a pattern developing and this is an important part of experimental mathematics. The pattern is there is always a multiple of 59 on the left and a predictable form of 10^k  6 on the right. We know that We also know that a0 which is the front digit of the new number must be one of these {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}. The whole thing now presents itself as an algorithm that leads to this pseudocode: 1) Begin k loop 2) h = 10^k  6 / 59 3) Times h by 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and see if the products are integers. 4) Yes they are, print k and stop 5) They are not go back to 1.

Re: A number problem.That is correct, for the first part! 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: A number problem.Hmm... Let me see if I can find the number 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: A number problem.There is a little trick, you will have to refer to the math in post #1. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: A number problem.Hi; The a0 can take any value from 1  9. You only picked 1. The left has every digit except for a0. When you choose a digit for a0 it goes on the back of the number.

Re: A number problem.
Isn't this number of times the value of a_0? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: A number problem.It sure could but that does not mean it solves the problem. As a matter of fact that are 4 solutions in this area. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: A number problem.My solution was with a0=6 and a0=9.

Re: A number problem.There are 2 more 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. #23 20130303 22:06:22
Re: A number problem.I figured that out. And I think that I will be able to find them as soon as I look at my notebook.

Re: A number problem.Once Agnishom figures it out then I can post another one. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
