Re: Four SquareThat expression gets the second square before the first. We could iterate again and get the third, fourth or fifth. 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. #77 20130421 13:59:34
Re: Four SquareI just coded it and it worked! 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Four SquareAll those numbers are divisible by 130. Can it do 16? 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: Four SquareYes. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #82 20130421 22:47:18
Re: Four SquareThere are for 130. Maybe his algorithm is not correct. 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: Four SquareDid you try his applet at the bottom and see if it works on 130? 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. #85 20130421 23:08:33
Re: Four SquareLet me do that now. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Four SquareOh! Then #84 won't make sense to you. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Four SquareHow did you express 130 in the form of 4^r * s? 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: Four SquareRepeated division by 4.

Re: Four Square(4^0)*(130) = 130 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Four SquareWhat did you now get for this step? 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. #93 20130422 00:11:52
Re: Four SquareThat is the problem, I can't do it. 4k + 1 isn't being a prime 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Four SquareWhen you ran his applet, what was his answer for 130? 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: Four SquareMaybe I am missing something but how do you know what square to subtract? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Four SquareI am starting from 0, then 1 then 4 then 9 then 16 and so on.. Last edited by Agnishom (20130422 03:15:28) 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun.

Re: Four SquareLet me look at it for awhile. 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. #99 20130422 03:40:28
