 gzl er, doesn't actually say thatthat is the only inconsistent thing you've said asphyxia gzl: I'll tex that part. Done in 3 minutes gzl dude, isn't your question just about (1 p)(1 p-1)...(1 2)? there is no need to tex anythingif you think (1 2)(1 3) is an example of a product like that you're just blatantly getting the order backwards Steve|Office I've heard of books going in that order. gzl so have I, but I think he is making the mistake in thinking that (1 2)(1 3) is an example of a product of that form Steve|Office I guess I didn't read the first bit. gzl anyway, let him waste time texing it if he wants, I guess DemisM (1 2)(1 3) can be either of (1 3 2) or (1 2 3) right? gzl no, it's only one or the other depending on which order you want to go in.or is that what you meant DemisM yeahlike it's one or the other not both gzl right asphyxia http://tersloev.dk/untitled.pdfgzl: I am sorry if this bothers you, then dont have a look at it.but that is the best translation, I was able to make.I think it will help clear up the misunderstandings gzl that statement was fine, the issue is that (1 2)(1 3) is not equal to (1 2 3) and has nothing to do with that theorem(1 3)(1 2) would be an exampleor (1 5)(1 4)(1 3)(1 2) asphyxia the product of the last expression is equal to (1 2 3 4 5), right? gzl yesby your theorem. but you brought up this (1 2)(1 3) example which has nothing to do with thisin fact if you apply that theorem it tells you that (1 2)(1 3) = (1 3 2) asphyxia kook... gzl if there's something you're confused about you should point to what it is asphyxia well, I think it's kind of cleared up gzl ok asphyxia I will mutter about it later if there is some glitch... but thanksI think it helped me to translate that passage. brick_ Ok, I understand how to find out what the error term is for a given number of terms in a taylor expansionYet given an error, how do I find the number of terms needed to get there?For instance, I have Sin(.45) as a power series. How many terms do I need to get to .0000001 error? me22 brick_: signs alternate, so find the first term smaller than the required error thianpa Anyone knows how i can swap two number only using the two variable ?
