Re: Math Question (maybe induction)

What you've done looks horrible. It doesn't look so bad, I don't think there's a problem with what I did. Oh, well, I edited it. Just treat a^n - b^n like a polynomial. Is there another polynomial, g(a,b) such that (a-b) g(a,b) = a^n-b^n ? Is a question or a guidance? How would it h...

Math Question (maybe induction)

Preferably by induction, if possible.

Re: 0848: "3D"

Sure, but I think that's pretty well captured in the fact that they're called "movies". As in, they move . Through time. Indeed. It's like saying polygon with depth instead of polyhedron. What you said reminds me of http://xkcd.com/209/ By the way, explaining that 3 dimensional movies are...

Re: 0848: "3D"

Actually, many people here are wrong including the stick-figures.
The movies you call '2D' are actually three-dimensional; time is also a dimension.
