Details and assumptions Whats wrong? '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 #2 20130603 02:07:38
Re: Possible Lego PeopleI am getting (4!)^2.

Re: Possible Lego PeopleWhen did I allow that? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Possible Lego PeopleHi 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. #5 20130604 00:13:17
Re: Possible Lego PeopleYes 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Possible Lego PeopleChoose the first head and there are now 4 legs and 4 torsos for 4 x 4 = 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. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #7 20130604 21:51:04
Re: Possible Lego PeopleI still do not get this. '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 #8 20130605 02:07:46
Re: Possible Lego PeopleBecause you cannot use a torso or a pair of legs if you have already used them.

Re: Possible Lego People
What! Why?? '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 #11 20130605 15:41:25
Re: Possible Lego People
I can't understand it.. Jake is Alice's father, Jake is the ________ of Alice's father? Why is T called island letter? think, think, think and don't get up with a solution... #12 20130605 19:09:43
Re: Possible Lego People
Because as you are assembling each particular set of them you are using up the pieces. 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. #13 20130606 03:51:11
Re: Possible Lego PeopleOh yeah. Clever. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Possible Lego PeopleJust wondering, where'd you get this problem from? The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #15 20130606 03:56:19

Re: Possible Lego PeopleHm, which level of Geometry and Combinatorics are you?

Re: Possible Lego PeopleAre you okay with the answer? 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. #18 20130606 11:33:23
Re: Possible Lego PeopleNo, it will take time to visualise that. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Possible Lego PeopleI have not been back there since the last time you mentioned it to me. 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. #20 20130606 11:40:06
Re: Possible Lego PeopleBut you get a level the first time you join it. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Possible Lego PeopleI'll bet I am not. You have 7000 points there if I remember. 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. #22 20130606 15:37:56
Re: Possible Lego PeopleI don't understand why you are not 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Possible Lego PeopleThe most powerful restriction I know, time! I can not be here and there at the same time. Since Jane unearthed my clones I have had to put them back into cold storage. 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: Possible Lego PeopleThey Give You A Level When You First Log Into It. By Default Your Level Should Start As Very High '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 #25 20130606 21:35:28
Re: Possible Lego PeopleI remember I had 375 or so points. I do not remember my level. 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.
