Bitter Roots:

Hi;

Show a good method to calculate

with no calculators or CAS to directly compute the 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.

I mean really, this is too much. Is not math hard enough without these guys insisting that only certain methods be used and others are in some way inferior? First it was no calculators, then it was no Cas', then without expanding, later no maxima or minima, now it is no gf! I am waiting for the ultimate problem, no calculus, algebra, geometry etc, no thinking and you must solve it while doing a headstand in 2 feet of water. Kaboobly doo doo! I only wished I was a young man again so that I could hand in the most abstract excruciating gf God or I have ever seen, just to vex this problem poser.

Brittle math is currently on hold and must wait its turn.
