Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi DayThen use the techniques of experimental math to come up with a nice conjecture. 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. #27 20131120 11:37:33
Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi DayI think the answer was close to 67?! Or am I wrong? '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 #28 20131120 11:54:39
Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi DaySorry, never mind post 27 '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 #29 20131120 11:58:46
Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi DayDo you have their answer? 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. #30 20131120 12:04:37
Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi DayI cannot give you the answer because they regenerate the problem with new numericals every time I open the page. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi DayWhere is it? 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. #32 20131120 12:13:32

Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi DayLooks like all of them can be knocked off by geogebra and you would gain the experience you need with a great package. 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. #34 20131120 12:28:00
Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi DayNope, you'll be forced to do some of them by hand '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 #35 20131120 12:34:59
Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi DayFirst 2 I saw that were real math problems geogebra can do easily. 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. #36 20131120 12:46:39
Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi DayThe first few problems can even be done inside the head '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 #37 20131120 19:41:59
Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi DayThe first 2 I saw were clearly geometry problems. Geogebra is the first choice 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. #38 20131120 23:30:40
Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi DayYou can do it with a calculator or just a brain '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 #39 20131121 00:40:29
Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi DayYes, you can but aren't we discussing using math software on them? 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. #40 20131121 00:56:20
Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi DayNo, when did I say that? '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 #41 20131121 01:13:30
Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi DayI would think that is the central issue here, trying to wean you off of procedural programming and into a CAS. 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. #42 20131121 02:38:13
Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi DayThat is the issue of a different thread '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 #43 20131121 02:47:17
Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi DayDo you become a different person because you are in a different thread. These threads are all related. 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.
