Hi! I'm Paul. :)

When there's enough spare time, I code sometimes (imagine if there was a -O4 flag for school). I program in Java and C++, script in Python and automate processes with Bash.

Currently, I am preparing for my high school finals and will (hopefully) be joining a university soon.

comment Why does the solution of a Pell's equation equal zero?
Yes, I tested it some minutes later with pow. That worked. I know that "^" exists in other languages. But whatever. Thank you. :)

comment Why does the solution of a Pell's equation equal zero?
Thank you! It really seems like the precision arithmetic is the problem here. My little C++ program also confirmed me that the result is 1. However, it's always nice to learn things. And this time I learned: Don't trust Google or the calculator for big numbers. ;)

I just tested it with Python and my calculator. Python fails completely (probably it misinterprets the results data type) and my calculator shows 0. I'm going to test it now with C++.
