comment arccos and arcsin integral contradiction:
True, thanks! An added $pi/2$ on the LHS makes the expressions equal. So my mistake was in not considering that though the derivative of 2 functions may be very close, the original functions from which they were derived may have different constants of integration!

comment Calculate $\sqrt{7+5\sqrt{2}}-\sqrt{3-2\sqrt{2}}$
Wow, its amazing that such an expression with roots within roots and roots of different degrees equates to 1... What type of math concerns itself with finding means to simplify such expressions?

comment Given $2015$ points, show that it is possible to separate them such that $1007$ of them lie inside the circle
@OscarCunningham What a great method man! It solves all the problems of the question extremely simply: your circle will never "hit" 2 points at once, as for that to happen you would have to be along a perpendicular bisector; much less about hitting more than 2 dots simultaneously (e.g. 3 dots), as that wold only occur if your new point were on the intersection of 2 or more bisectors. You just keep growing untill you hit 1007 :). OP, this guy has fully answered your question, and only in three lines!

comment What is wrong with this “inference” about partitions?
Oh... I just realized I stated A>B, C>D and A>C and concluded A-C>B-D

Thanks for your reply. Though, I have, in a little thing I'm trying to write, precisely done all of what you stated, lol. The problem is, this argument allows me to a develop a lower bound for p(n), namely 1.7^n, which is incorrect.

comment Is there a specific name for this set of square-rooted primes?
Thank you for your answer. How about the invertiblity property. Also, it seems to me that its not exactly like the group of the integers under addition as this prime-root set has certain "fundamental" elements. Is there a formal definition/name for this property that you are aware of? Thanks again :)
