function machinefunction game! Last edited by espeon (20060929 05:12:31) Presenting the Prinny dance. Take this dood! Huh doood!!! HUH DOOOOD!?!? DOOD HUH!!!!!! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #2 20060928 06:09:02

Re: function machineI like Devante's function better. Less to think about "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..." #5 20060928 18:45:03
Re: function machine
Using your function would mean that one of your results is 1/30 away from Espeon's. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #6 20060929 01:05:53
Re: function machineum i mean thats the same function on all of them to make it easier for you. im doing it in 4's. and mathsisfun is right Presenting the Prinny dance. Take this dood! Huh doood!!! HUH DOOOOD!?!? DOOD HUH!!!!!! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #7 20060929 01:31:22
Re: function machineI'm obviously not the first to figure these out, but I just logged on, and no one has written them Last edited by Patrick (20060929 01:32:04) #8 20060929 01:35:18
Re: function machine
I think that was it. Last edited by Devanté (20060929 01:36:47) #9 20060929 01:42:56
Re: function machinea is meant to be the start number and b is the second. and i dont understand that fraction thingy. mine isnt really that complicated... Presenting the Prinny dance. Take this dood! Huh doood!!! HUH DOOOOD!?!? DOOD HUH!!!!!! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #11 20060929 02:06:55
Re: function machineooooo i get it the fraction thing is supposed to be a division part thingy! Yep patrick won Presenting the Prinny dance. Take this dood! Huh doood!!! HUH DOOOOD!?!? DOOD HUH!!!!!! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #12 20060929 02:10:37
Re: function machineYep. a² ÷ 3 = b. Last edited by Devanté (20060929 02:11:01) #13 20060929 02:51:49
Re: function machineDoes that mean that it's Patrick's turn to make a function now? Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #14 20060929 02:58:07
Re: function machineI guess we could make it a game I'm kinda busy with school atm though, so if anyone else wants to make the next 'functionpuzzle' they're welcome #15 20060929 05:08:27
Re: function machineok then we can make it a game! ill edit the title. its patricks turn! Presenting the Prinny dance. Take this dood! Huh doood!!! HUH DOOOOD!?!? DOOD HUH!!!!!! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #16 20060929 05:13:17
Re: function machinenope i cant edit the title but i edited thefirst post lol Presenting the Prinny dance. Take this dood! Huh doood!!! HUH DOOOOD!?!? DOOD HUH!!!!!! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #17 20060929 05:56:15
Re: function machineHere we go.. As before, b is a function of a Last edited by Patrick (20060929 05:56:44) #18 20060929 05:58:18
Re: function machineah, sorry ricky.. Guess you'll just have to answer my question fast then I'm pretty sure you know the function already.. hehe Last edited by Patrick (20060929 05:58:57) #19 20060929 06:03:12
Re: function machineYea patrick, you beat me in under a minute, little twerp "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..." #20 20060929 06:10:02
Re: function machinethat's correct, and simplified: and you'll probably recognize it as the formula for finding the number of diagonals in a polygon with a sides. #21 20060929 07:38:56
Re: function machineAre we allowed any function we like, or does it have to be a nice one? Because technically, if you give any function with n examples of how it works, then there's always a polynomial of order (n1) that will fit it. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #22 20060929 11:42:37
Re: function machineYou're right mathsyperson. The point being to show that not all functions have to be defined by a single formula. But remember, when you see "..." it means that there is some pattern to follow. "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..." #23 20060929 23:07:57
Re: function machineI'll have a go at making one then. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #24 20060930 01:16:38
Re: function machinethats interesting.... i have absolutely no idea how to solver that. 2 and 4 come up with the same answer 1 and 5 come up with the same answer yet again and 3 is just singly. its like a pattern but still dont know how to solve it lol Presenting the Prinny dance. Take this dood! Huh doood!!! HUH DOOOOD!?!? DOOD HUH!!!!!! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #25 20060930 01:22:31
Re: function machineIf you plot this, it might help you realise what kind of function this might be..
