comment Founding Arithmetic on geometry
Maybe a look at The Geometry of Rene Descartes is worth a looksee. I have no idea if it will help, but his insights on algebraic geometry are definitely unique from what I have seen

comment Composition of Identical Functions
Another question, how would the last two be represented and/or transformed into a formula or equation?

comment Composition of Identical Functions
I would the Fourier Transform help? If I recall correctly (note that I am 15), the Fourier Transform is just converting a function from a time to a frequency domain. Where would this be applicable to my situation?

That's Awesome, +1

comment Repeating Square Root Simplification
And then anything to a negative power is something like $\frac{1}{n^{x+1}}$, where $x$ is negative, right?

Thank you, I appreciate that :)

Also, I have no clue what to tag this with... Any ideas?

First off, I don't just do math in my classes and call it good. I go to a school where self-studying is encouraged, and I take advantage of that. I am taking myself through calculus. This last Sunday at church, I was able to find the derivative of the equation of a circle in my head ($div{-x,y}) Secondly, I just love how it all flows together, how there are so many patterns that occur throughout, and that there are so many in the world that are yet to be "solved"

comment Careers in Math
But in my mind it seems that to be a mathematician, you spend your life at home, next to a whiteboard, doing math. I am wondering if a job exists so that I could get paid (so I can eat) for working on math.

@ShaunAult Oh, trust me, I can tread water in calc. In church today, I was working the derivative of a circle equation.

@ShaunAult so which is commonly accepted? And what in the heck does "indeterminate form" mean? I am a highschool freshman ^^

@ShaunAult Then what kind of number is it? o.O

comment Numbers to the Power of Zero
For 1), so some mathematician once said that $a^{0} = 1$? For 2), Which is then correct? Or is it both? For 3), I can kinda wrap my head around that, but I have yet to come across that particular way of denoting a range...

@ThomasAndrews Is there a mathematical way to prove so?

comment Numbers to the Power of Zero
@ShaunAult Ah, true. But what if I set n to n-1, and set total to x? Wouldn't that throw your claim out the window?

Really? I have always been told that it is undefined...

Umm, I mean $n$ does not equal $0$, programming habit -_- And I am not good in TeX
