 Mar 7 comment What was the first bit of mathematics that made you realize that math is beautiful? (For children's book) Which proof of $\sqrt{2}$ being irrational? Feb 28 comment In a group $G$ with operation $\star$, can I apply $\star$ to both sides of an equation? @GerryMyerson I meant that if you went from $a=b$ to $a^2=b^2$, you can don't lose any information because you still have the two equations. Feb 28 comment In a group $G$ with operation $\star$, can I apply $\star$ to both sides of an equation? @GerryMyerson Isn't going from $a^2=b^2$ to $a=b$ the same as $a^2=b^2\implies a=b^2/a$, and because $a=b$, $\implies a=b^2/b=b$.

Both mean the same thing. If there's a different set of terminating numbers there will also be a set of non-terminating numbers. Correct? Jun 22 comment When representing a base-n number in decimal ($\frac{x}{n^l}$), will there be a different set of terminating representable numbers than base-10? You confirm my revised suspicion: the set of representable non-terminating numbers does depend on the base. Thanks!
