Hi, I'm a bit new to this place.
I was thinking about this equation for a while. It came up because I've been doing excessive fraction work in Kumon lately (Urrrgh not Kumon). Essentially, you could say I "discovered" it?
So, I was asking if anyone could prove, if possible:
For all values of N (Natural numbers).
I've been assuming this equation for a while to help me take shortcuts in Kumon, but I was wondering if it is even true?
Post your proofs, or proofs against this equation, below.
That is an identity, it is true for all numbers not just N.
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.
