 Jan20 awarded Notable Question May16 awarded Popular Question Sep27 comment Divisibility of multinomial by a prime number I especially like the alternative approach. It suits my application computationally if I store values for $v_p(n!)$ in a cache. Sep27 asked Are values of multinomials distinct for distinct sets of integer partitions in the denominator? Sep12 awarded Popular Question Sep6 comment Fixed-Point Iteration method unable to converge to any of a function's infinte roots @Amzoti I have answered my own question because it seemed satisfactory enough to me. Please check it if there are any discrepancies in the answer; I can't seem to find one. Also: what is the protocol regarding answering your own question? Sep6 answered Fixed-Point Iteration method unable to converge to any of a function's infinte roots Sep6 comment Fixed-Point Iteration method unable to converge to any of a function's infinte roots @Amzoti Thanks! Sep6 awarded Commentator Sep6 comment Fixed-Point Iteration method unable to converge to any of a function's infinte roots @Amzoti Thanks for the reference and the tip; I have blindly used the method till now. But the fact remains this is a homework queston where the function and the method are pre-specified. Still, plotting another function g(x) = (sin(x) + 1)/(sin(x) - 1) on the graph is yielding me infinite roots as promised by the original equation. I am still working on its solution, but the fact remains I still don't know why my original method failed. Sep6 comment Fixed-Point Iteration method unable to converge to any of a function's infinte roots @copper.hat I meant fixed-point iteration method. Sorry for confusion; I have updated the post accordingly.

Dec5 comment How can I introduce complex numbers to precalculus students? I always imagine complex numbers as a plane, only with one axis as the imaginary numbers. I thought it was the only way to do it, really! Aug28 comment Number of points at which a tangent touches a curve @RobertIsrael - He said it exactly like I said. Maybe he didn't want me to get into detail - I'll give him benefit of doubt since he was at the end correct. Plus, he is otherwise an excelent teacher! Aug25 accepted Number of points at which a tangent touches a curve Aug24 comment Number of points at which a tangent touches a curve This seems intriguing, and though I don't understand bits of it right now, I would have just have to study more. Thanks for your answer. I was expecting something of this kind from this site. :-) Aug24 awarded Editor
