comment How to Generate Random Mathematical Equations that Equal an Integer
+1 @Doug Spoonwood: complexity was meant to be the inclusion of concepts such as: addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, roots, fractions, powers, Decimals, percentages, etc. until as many concepts had been used that would not result in getting an answer that would not equal [0-9]. That said, your idea was creative, addressed two of the three parts of the question as far as I'm able to tell - though, to me, incremental redundant patterns produce volume, not complexity. As very possible I've misunderstood your answer, either way thank you!

+1 @Gortaur: Thanks, stepped out, just got back. Answers looks fine, realized while I was out (looking at the question on my phone) that the question was flawed, though a good start, so I'm not going to edit the question since it's my error. Also, believe @amWhy is right, would you confirm that. Thanks!

comment How to Generate Random Mathematical Equations that Equal an Integer
@Gerry Myerson: Looked at your edit, and rolled it back, reason being that the solutions should be equations rather than integer themselves. Meaning I want to generate equations that resolve to a fixed integer (or in this case, a set of them), not integers that fit within an an equation. The generated equations should represent as many math mathematical concepts as possible while still resolving to [0-9].

@Gerry Myerson: "x + 3 = [0-9]" where x is TRUE, meaning [0-6] would be TRUE, [7-9] would be FALSE. All generated equations must evaluate as true.

@Gortaur: No, not attempting to make a CAPTCHA, though I thought that might be what you meant. And that's correct, no indeterminates should not be within the solution, or to be more clear, solutions should ONLY result in the following: 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9.

@Gortaur: Just noticed I had not answer your question about the types of equations. Answer would be any that are possible, though randomly selected.

+1 @M.S.: Thanks, agree that info was of use, though still missing the "simple" answer, or at least I missed it if it was present... :-)

comment What is the mathematical process behind fully homomorphic encryption?
Very possible I'm miss understanding your answer, but if the key gives the function the true values of the input, then the a the system running the function would know the values. Whole point I believe is for it to be possible to have calculations done on encrypted values. Am I missing something? Thanks!
