Re: NumbersHi Amartyanil; 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 20130825 16:24:25

Re: NumbersYou don't need a calculator for that. 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 #6 20130825 23:14:13

Re: NumbersThe way I do it is by making a little table of powers of 2. 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: NumbersHi all; The first column was created by dividing 530 by 2 and if there was a remainder ignoring it. The second column was created by the rule if the number next to it is even put a 0, if odd, put a 1. Now start from the bottom 530 decimal = 1000010010 binary. Lets do another one. 11571 decimal = 10110100110011 binary 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.
