NumbersHi, #2 20130607 22:52:24
Re: NumbersHi; 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 20130608 00:03:15
Re: NumbersHi bobbym, #4 20130608 00:08:30
Re: NumbersAre the numbers less than say 10? 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 20130608 00:31:59

Re: NumbersHow large is the solution? Hopefully each of the numbers are at least within 9999. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun.

Re: NumbersI don't think there is a straightforward 'logic' to that. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: NumbersYou are going to get an undetermined set of equations that will be very difficult to solve. Looks like a computer is the best way but the only logic will be the program itself. 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: NumbersAnd I dont get any other logic other than naive solution which is brute force as mentioned by Agnishom. #11 20130608 02:49:38
Re: NumbersYou want every pair of numbers to be a square also. Am I getting that right? 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 20130608 02:53:30
Re: Numbersyes..absolutely right. #13 20130608 03:01:08
Re: NumbersOkay, thanks for that solution there. 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. #14 20130608 14:25:30
Re: NumbersSo, how about programming it? Could you give me an idea? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: NumbersFour loops of course is the most simplistic idea. Remember how to pseudocode? 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. #16 20130608 16:47:26
Re: NumbersFour nested loops? '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 #17 20130608 19:27:49
Re: NumbersYes, for each variable. Use the constraints he gave above. 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 20130609 18:33:11
Re: NumbersBut whats going to be the upperbound of the loops. Are you asking me to cycle through the values? '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: NumbersHi Agnishom;
3 numbers are less than 10000 and one number is less than 1000. Also the numbers are distinct. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
