  10. what is your formula?

    Good idea...too much too fast could be a problem! 1/49=0.02040816326.... 1/97=0.010309278... etc ... Ain't it beautiful :-? I've looked at that three times already (once for each posting) and I've only just seen it. Does it really go on like that forever? MG Unfortunately not, the retains (?, retenues in french) have to be taken into account when multiplication exceeds 100. For example: 1/49= 0. 0204081632642856122448... 00000000000102051020... (1 of 128, 2 of 256 etc...) = 0. 02040816326530612244...

  14. what is your formula?

    An *easy* formula to extract a square root (cover of aparxa from a famous Newton standard) : If you need the sqrt of x (ex 34), take the closer perfect number r^2 of x (36). An approximation of the sqrt of x (34) is the fraction (mean of two numbers)/r = 35/6 If M is this mean (M=35), and b the half difference of the first numbers (b=(36-34)/2=1), then sqrt(x) =approx= M/r and for fans of mental calculation, we can use this second order formula : sqrt(x) =approx= M/r -b^2/(2Mr) =example= 35/6-1/(2*35*6)=2449/420 I also have a FABULOUS formula to calculate inverse numbers, will expose it later.

  22. What, in your mind, is a "cover"?

    And BTW, I always associated to the word cover a song made FOR FUN at end of a show, when the band had already played all their repertoire.
