Another Brilliant(R) math problem
Hey guys,
This one popped up on Walt's site in the Ads section: It's nonlinear so your usual matrix tricks won't work. Adding the two equations I can see that (x^2 + y^2 + 2xy) = (x + y)^2 = 50 such that x + y = sqrt(50). ...But that is cheating. The answer trivially follows from what I just stated... but are we in the business of solving these analytically? For fun, I ended up using my nonlinear equation solver to get it. Anyone else care to try this way? (And bplus, if you want nano to be bigger than 100 lines one day, and/or if nano can already solve this kind of problem, its a suitable target one way or the other.)

RE: Another Brilliant(R) math problem
I think it "brilliant" to observe x + y = sqr(50), nice one STxAxTIC!
Nano could graph y = (20  x^2)/x and x = (30  y^2)/y and x or y = (+1 or 1 ) * sqr(50)  (y or x) probably! (should be easy...) except for labeling everything... could color each plot different. APPEND: except when x or y = 0 Is Brilliant asking when x = y ? B += _

RE: Another Brilliant(R) math problem
I figured you'd like this one bplus. The problem is asking what is the product of x and y?

Alright I couldn't resist.

Hi Static
Do you know what is wrong with your program? Graphical presentations ...not just bunch of numbers! basicPro forum: http://basicpro.mipropia.com/smf/index.php EU Radioboard forum: http://euradioboard.createmybb3.com/index.php AurelSoft main site: http://aurelsoft.ucoz.com

RE: Another Brilliant(R) math problem
Oh my lord, I'm so triggered over what Aurel said. Walt? Mods? Mennonites of Censorhip? Anyone?
Yeah just kidding. Still awaiting your solution Aurel, supposing you'd know one when you saw one. Swing and a miss so far.

RE: Another Brilliant(R) math problem
Oh the Jacobian Matrix!
Yikes, maybe 40 years ago I might of been exposed to this sort of math, obviously it didn't take. Also nice is the Sxript X+ Console, tell me it's more the 100 lines ;)) Aurel, If you ever need some serious math help, I think you want this guy on your side. B += _

RE: Another Brilliant(R) math problem
Sup bplus,
Thanks for the compliments. As it turns out, the console you see is a website: http://www.sxript.com/sxript/docs/console/console.html Clicking the logo brings you to the main page, http://www.sxript.com (It's not a commercial endeavor  I just play around with web domains and junk like that.) If you want to get right to the juicy stuff, go here: http://www.sxript.com/sxript/docs/guide08.html ...and click on any of the topics. The code is preloaded, so you just have to mash the green button. You can edit the middle field as a bonus, so this is my goto utility for lots of things, but there should* be more topics on the way. (*Just gotta get over my laziness.) As a final note to pique your interest, sxript is written in 3 languages simultaneously (a number which can be generalized). The web stuff is all javascript, which happens to be directly translated from qb45 code. Same can be said for the c++ implementation. And the freebasic version, and the qb64 version. So too with the qb45 version (it really works). All implementations use the same code, simply pumped through a handmade utility that makes syntax changes. I chose a discipline that forgoes the luxuries of any particular language, but assures universality through strictness, such that the logic and semantics are "outside" of the code itself. Sxript is basically a tool for reducing problems  the language doesn't much matter. (It's more than 100 lines.)
