Re: Four SquareDo I understand you want 4 squares that sum to 130 #102 20130422 04:03:39
Re: Four SquareHey, that guy has the same name as you. 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. #103 20130422 04:38:38
Re: Four SquareWhich guy? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Four SquareHi Agnishom; 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. #105 20130422 05:01:22
Re: Four SquareOr maybe running the debugger.. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Four SquareI know that was you. I was kidding. 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. #107 20130422 06:05:42

The best method depends on the tools you have! Last edited by Mrwhy (20130422 06:09:24) #108 20130422 09:35:11
Re: Four SquareHi;
There is only one really good reason, practice for when you need the skill. Many times problems in combinatorics will have say 20 or 25 factorial different possibilities. Number theory is even worse. You can not always plow through some immense number. 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 Squareand my algorithm breaks ten digits number in less than a second, I have checked it. '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?'

Re: Four SquareOf course, give me a number '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 #112 20130423 02:18:54
Re: Four SquareI have a nice 9 digit number: 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. #113 20130423 03:12:15

Re: Four SquareYou obviously got it working. 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. #117 20130423 22:16:55
Re: Four SquareIs there any specific reason you call it nice? '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 #118 20130424 01:51:28
Re: Four SquareYes, because it can be broken down into squares that are repunits. 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. #119 20130424 01:59:00
Re: Four SquareRepunits? '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 #120 20130424 02:03:09
Re: Four SquareNumbers with all 1's in them. 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. #121 20130424 02:13:05
Re: Four SquareI guess this is much better than Mrwhy's 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Four SquareHmm, how was the kid like? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'
