Re: Add 99 more and post it forever.

12^3+15^3+19^3+24^3+26^3+87^2+88^2+89^2+92^2+108^2 = 86724


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

G'mornin' Bobby,

Shouldn't your '=' be '≠'? wink

Re: Add 99 more and post it forever.

Hi phrontister;

It sure should have. I changed it to the correct answer. 3 lines of measly code and still there are bugs in it!

7^3+2 x 19^3+24^3+25^3+87^2+88^2+90^2+93^2+107^2 = 87021

Hi Bobby,

Kill those bugs and bye-bye measles. Shouldn't be too hard to 'spot' (sic) the flaw.

Re: Add 99 more and post it forever.

The product of the digits of the prime factorization of 88308 = 432...and 432/4-3²=99

Re: Add 99 more and post it forever.

3•99^2+101^2+103^2+105^2+113^2+120^2 = 88407

8•8 + 40 - 7 is darn close to 99

Re: Add 99 more and post it forever.

So is 8+84+0+7. smile

The product of the digits of the prime factorization of 88506 = 1944 ... and ... 1+√9+4!x4=99
