RE: Last post wins.
but still 2A^22ab = a^2ab that doesnt look like a subtraction of 2ab...

RE: Last post wins.
Wait, is that: (2A^2)  2ab
OR is it: 2A^(22ab)?

RE: Last post wins.
I've reformatted this 'proof' to clarify a few things.

RE: Last post wins.
I've got one for you nonstat majors (St. petersburg paradox):
Let's say I offer you a game: A coin is tossed at every stage. The pot starts at 1 dollar and is doubled every time a head appears. When a tail appears, the game ends and you win the money in the pot. (i.e. You win 4 dollars if two heads appear, and then a tail appears after) How much are you willing to pay for this game?

My gut however wouldn't pay more than $8. And in reality, I don't gamble for money and wouldn't play at all. I am in no way affiliated with or authorized by One Man Left Studios, LLC.

RE: Last post wins.
haha kamikaze you got me... yeah i was really confused by that at first, just i realized later that a=b... so a^2ab = 0 indeed.
also to phrenikos... what would be the difference in how much i'd pay for the game? does the pot start at how much i pay or something? o jjust 1 dollar every challenge?
