System Architect / Senior Software Developer in Calgary, Alberta. Consulting on various projects, mostly with a .Net or classic ASP background. I've been developing Web applications and Websites for over a decade now ranging from using a propietary markup and ISAPI extensions(C/C++) to Classic ASP(VBScript) to ASP.Net(C# 1.0/1.1/2.0/3.5/4.0/MVC) I enjoy solving puzzles such as Sudoku and mysteries. My previous work involves using various Agile practices,e.g. Scrum and pair-programming, on a CMS project within an IS department's web development group.

I enjoy sharing what I've experienced, learned or think may be worth sharing with the world.

comment How can I show why this equation has no complex roots?
@leo, after identifying those common factors as one set of solutions, what are the other solutions? There is something to be said for getting all the answers. Canceling is just merely a way of simplifying the part of the expression to solve after setting aside those solutions.

comment $1$ is not congruent because of Fermat's Last Theorem?
That would be an isosceles triangle not equilateral as equilateral would make all sides be the same. $a^4+b^4=c^4$ would have a non-trivial solution since the $\sqrt2$ could be expressed as a fraction that would give a solution which was part of FLT.

comment How to use the logarithm method to solve $18^{4x-3}=(54\sqrt{2})^{3x-4}$ for $x$?
$18=9*2$ which means the square root would be $3\sqrt2$ right? Hint: $54 = 9*6 = (9*2)*3$

comment Why does base*height work?
Yes as there is something to be said for which shapes are you wanting to consider: Rectangles, parallelograms, squares?

comment Why does base*height work?
That formula is only true of specific shapes as circles, triangles and a few other shapes would not work with that formula you do realize, right?

comment Trailing zeroes on factorial?
Since $10=5*2$, why not look at how many times will $5$ occur as a factor in the product? That would be my hint for you.

comment How do I find the critical values to find the maximum of this function?
Shouldn't the $10y$ be $10y^2$? Just wondering if that is a typo.

comment What exactly is a number?
How do we get $\pi$ or $e$ from your definitions? These are numbers that aren't expressible without bringing in some elements that make numbers be a bit conceptual you do realize, right?

comment can i solve this quadratic equation this way
No, as you miss the other solution that exists for this problem.

comment Needing help with this problem
For the first expression, are you wanting maximum, minimum or both? Also, what is the domain of x and y: Real or Complex?

comment Please help with absolute value $|x^2 - 3x| = 28$
You do realize that if the expression in the absolute value equals -28 that would also be a solution, right?

comment Is my equation result correct?
Yes this is a single linear equation in one variable. However, tags may change over time for one side while also being that some may see this as an elementary school Math problem.
