On the right track. It's $11=11^1$ after one choice, $11^2$ after two choices. It would have to be $11^{11}$ after eleven choices. You are not making eleven choices here though.

Jan17 comment Can you provide me historical examples of pure mathematics becoming “useful”? @JavaMan: I think there might be some debate as to whether string theory is useful ... Jan17 comment CNF Rule hierarchy discovery There is a theoretical computer science stack exchange: cstheory.stackexchange.com I don't know if that works better or not. Jan12 comment Norm of Polynom What is your mathematical background? Are you familiar with linear algebra (in particular vector spaces, vectors, bases, innerproducts)? Are you familiar with integration? Jan12 awarded Notable Question Jan10 comment Computing a Limit using the Limit Definition I suspect that computing $e^{e^{1000000}}$ would be a major project, requiring quite a bit of programming skill. It doesn't make sense to try to compute the exact value in this context at all. Jan10 awarded Nice Answer Jan10 answered Mathematical notation for computer science Jan10 comment How does a non-mathematician go about publishing a proof in a way that ensures it to be up to the mathematical community's standards? A nice compromise might be finding computer scientist, who sometimes publishes in math. There are a few. So, hopefully the computer science researcher will be able to communicate with the OP, while at the same time having some idea of what mathematicians are looking for.
