Parahexagon and GeogebraHi; We have found one answer! I urge you to plot the points and check the angles using vectors or the law of cosines and also to check the area using determinants. The finished answer is the image on the left. Geogebra came so close we were able to guess at an exact answer and find the area using ordinary methods. Anyway, we are done with the problem. 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. #3 20130520 08:37:03
Re: Parahexagon and GeogebraHi; Repeat for the rest. Is it not amazing that the methods employed here reduce this problem down to a simple cubic equation!? 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: Parahexagon and GeogebraHow does the root approximant function in M work? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Parahexagon and GeogebraWhat is a PSLQ? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Parahexagon and GeogebraIt is an extension of the extended GCD. Where the extended GCD solves ax + by = c, the PSLQ solves and it solves it in such a way that the are integers. It was called the most important algorithm of the 20th century. 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: Parahexagon and GeogebraHow does this work? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Parahexagon and GeogebraIt uses something called Lattice Reduction. Exactly how this works I can not explain. In more general terms it is a way to intelligently guess, with a high probability at what constants make up a decimal. 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. #12 20130521 12:27:03
Re: Parahexagon and GeogebraOkay but is it related to root approximant? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Parahexagon and GeogebraYes, post #3 is doing a rootapproximant using a PSLQ. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Parahexagon and GeogebraVoldemort? Sounds like a French cheese. 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: Parahexagon and GeogebraI can't believe you don't know who he is 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Parahexagon and GeogebraThat is because I have never read those books. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Parahexagon and GeogebraYou do not know who He who must not be named is? I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. Archimedes Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
