Re: mathcounts/amc problemsHi; 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. #4 20130903 08:59:46
Re: mathcounts/amc problemsYes, I agree. That is the only possibility.

Re: mathcounts/amc problemsIt is the only answer, it was derived in 2 ways. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
