Re: Interesting proofsHi 4DLiVing; Can you believe that no one has noticed the above statement yet? 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 20110110 02:44:49

Re: Interesting proofsExactly! There you go. There is already a proof to this theorem as Ricky points out. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Interesting proofsOk.. got it... you were simply pointing out that you could not believe someone did not realize that. #30 20110110 05:16:33
Re: Interesting proofsWith the conditions you left out, there is an infinite number of solutions I believe. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Interesting proofsa proof by induction i think would work here... #32 20110110 05:52:19
Re: Interesting proofsYou really do not need one because every sixth power is a square and a cube: Since there are an infinite number of sixth powers then there is an infinite number of solutions to your equation.

Re: Interesting proofsaha... very interesting! Expansion of the mind again! #34 20110110 07:35:19
Re: Interesting proofsI am not working it that way. And every time I try I am coming down to n^2 * n^2 * n^2 = n^3 * n^3. It is an identity you do not need to use induction. 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: Interesting proofs
Here is a much more elementary proof that there are infinitely many primes: Last edited by DrSteve (20110114 01:45:59) If you're going to be taking the SAT, check out my book: http://thesatmathprep.com/SAT_Sales_Page.html #38 20110716 18:48:58
Re: Interesting proofsHaven't read the other comments on this thread but the more interesting question is that if you require that p and q be chosen such that q is not in the extension of Q by p, is it still possible that p^q is rational. #39 20110801 18:18:21
Re: Interesting proofsInteresting proofs involving cubes since 1=1+1/2 and and (n+2)(n+1)/2=n+1+n(n+1)/2 therefore all successive successors of 1 satisfy this sum (tounge twister ). since 1^3= ((1+1)/2)^2 and and . Last edited by namealreadychosen (20110801 18:18:49) #40 20140123 01:41:46
Re: Interesting proofsAre the sides of a triangle lenearly independent quantities? #41 20140123 02:17:56

Re: Interesting proofsHow's that triangle possible? I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. Archimedes Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Interesting proofsWhen you said x, y and x+y, you meant side lengths, right? I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain.

Re: Interesting proofsShould have read the post before and seen the arrows... For a second I thought it violated the triangle inequality.
