iCan someone explain exactly why and how this is true? 'Math is not a means to arrive at truth, Math IS the only truth!' #2 20060510 03:07:39
Re: iStart out at i^1, which of course is just i. Now what's i^2? Well, another way to write (i)^2? We know i is √1, so i^2 is (√1)^2, which of course is just 1. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #3 20060510 05:13:48
Re: iOhhhhh, I see it now, I was thinking illogically about the fourth power. I should have wrote it down and thought about it. 'Math is not a means to arrive at truth, Math IS the only truth!'
