comment Contraposition and law of excluded middle
@Materialist as far as I know (I am not an expert), the law of the excluded middle is formally equivalent to negation elimination. If we can obtain a statement without using negation elimination (i.e. without invoking $\neg\neg P \iff P$), we have proven it without making use of the law of the excluded middle. Here, we begin with, say, $(A\to B) \& \neg B$. If we can now show $\neg A$, then we've shown that $(A\to B)\to (B\to A)$. Now, assume $A$; we show that this leads to $B\&\neg B$, which allows us to conclude $\neg A$ without making use of the law of the excluded middle.

comment Extended Monte Hall problem (Hallway)
We start with $n$ doors, and each door has $n$ doors behind it? The answer will be the same—you're not really changing the problem very much; you're just jiggling some parameters around a little bit. Now not switching wins when you select the right door and then select the right door, which happens with probability $1/n^2$. Switching wins when you select the wrong door, change to the right door, and then select the right second door, which happens with probability $\frac{(n-1)}{n}\times\frac{1}{n-1}\times\frac{1}{n}>1/n^2$. Have I interpreted your question correctly?

"A side is a line segment" ... it sounds like you have your answer then

If you can define very precisely what you mean by "side", the answer ought to be obvious.

comment What does “radical cube zero” mean?
For what it's worth, in mathematics, a "dimension" is not something that one can "enter". The dimension of a (vector) space is (roughly) the number of coordinates that it takes to fully specify a point in that space. So whatever references you've found to radical cubes (and I don't know what a radical cube is), it is doubtful that it has anything to do with entering or exiting other dimensions.

comment solve the equation for x
Hello, I've changed your statement of the problem to LaTeX code, which I would recommend learning to get the most out of this site. Can you check to make sure that I've translated correctly?
