### Re: Ain't it the truth.

The point is that the stereotype shown in the comic is not true. Mathematica said so is a valid step and is accepted by many well-known mathematicians as they say in the book.

### Re: Ain't it the truth.

Yes and it is my point in the other thread.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
