Re: no. of DivisersHi 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 #4 20130828 06:59:59
Re: no. of DivisersVery good! I ran out of fingers a couple of times and had to use toes. Ran out of them and went to the dumpster to see if someone had dropped in a bag of fingers. No luck! Then I said, "is there a bettter way?" Came right to me, I went to the store and bought 51 bags of fingers. 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 20130828 08:54:55
Re: no. of DivisersWhy so many fingers.

Re: no. of DivisersDo not particularly like fish, so I bought chicken fingers. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
