Sulo_SeppaBut really, how do I implement the sqrt function?
KD19To prove a general case, you need to be able to prove EVERY special case
so if you prove a few special cases, you might see a pattern
I dunno
so I'm trying to understand 2d space first
nitrofourthe radio sis half of the distsance between the distance found between the radius of the two points
that's very important to remember
Sulo_Seppaanyone know? sqrt?
KD19and to understand 2d, it's still to general
nitrofourremember what i said.
KD19so I try to understand
nitrofourit answers everyone's question
the radio sis half of the distsance between the distance found between the radius of the two points
lokieSulo do u mean implement it as in programming/?
KD19special cases
Sulo_Seppalokie: in general, but I am a programmer
KD19sulo google "square root algorithm"
edKD19- I think I am about to give up for the night
KD19ed yeah I have a light headache
edmy brain is off and it's not fair to have you do all the thinking in this when its my problem
are you here often?
KD19I will be from now on
but I can't talk here
unless I'm voiced
edWhy not?
nitrofourdo i have to repeat myself
i hope not
i answered the question thoroughly
lokieSulo here is somthing, http://mitpress.mit.edu/sicp/chapter1/node9.html not sure how much help
KD19ah
to prevent abuse ; )
OlatheSulo_Seppa: An easy, but probably inefficient, way is to do each bit from high to low. If setting it to 1 is too high after squaring, set it to 0.
edKD19, well whatever ;) thanks so much for your help
KD19hm
np
anyway, my lemma was
the problem we were working on is how to prove that you can't intersect the two outer points
without also intersecting the middle point
right?
edyes i think we agree on this one
