Re: Bafflers?There are the correct number of nines in my first two posts, but muffed it with the pdf. "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do."  Ted Nelson #1177 20131002 01:44:48
Re: Bafflers?I thought you had too few in the title. 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. #1178 20131002 02:01:20
Re: Bafflers?When will you be posting the followup problem? 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 #1179 20131002 02:06:30

Re: Bafflers?Well, usually, when you post a problem as easy as this one was, there is another similar problem right after it...

Re: Bafflers?That is good reasoning but in this case I can not post the follow up. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Bafflers?Hi Bobby,
Yes, you're right about that. Last edited by phrontister (20131002 02:29:56) "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do."  Ted Nelson #1183 20131002 02:29:01

Re: Bafflers?Maybe it's to do with the font I used. I won't try to sort that out. "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do."  Ted Nelson #1185 20131002 02:35:30

Re: Bafflers?Is it like: one day robbery happens, then 28 days gap, then a robbery, and so on ?

Re: Bafflers?Yes, I would say so. Let's assume the police have not picked up on the 29 day pattern and choose 10 days in a row starting from an initial random day.
