Freakshow, there are at least one book that I recall having heard of that's translated to English and avoids the use of E in the entire book. Perhaps that would be a good inspiration for you for this gameIntelligent Supporter, Unimportant Sir ThemePark, Advanced Intelligence Robot & Son

I'm back.
This is the PM that Hollandgirl sent me:
Originally posted by HollandgirlBoth sides have that thing above (dunno the word in english, literally translated from dutch it means carrot ) , so you if you gotta square (i just found it in our dictionary, i mean the two above the numbers.. christ i wish i could be more english) them both. after that, this is what you have:
202 + x2 = 102 + (10 + x)2
So after that you gotta work out the (10 + x)2
That means: (10 + x) x (10 + x) (x between the two () means 'multiplied by')
So now you've got:
202 + x2 = 102 + 100 + 20x + x2
After that work out the squared numbers, so you've got:
400 + x2 = 100 + 100 + 20x + x2
After this get all the numbers in front of the '='
x2  x2 + 400  100  100  20x = 0
Work this out, now you've got:
200  20x = 0
Get the 200 on the other side of the '='
20x = 200
x = 200/20
x = 10
I hope it's correct! I might have used a total wrong method...

When I was solving the problem, I just saw a little detail...
Right on the beggining we have a square root, though, all the numbers are 'squared' (lol), so, the square root and the squares eliminate themselves, isn't it?Going on a trip around the universe on a convertible

awh. .. that sucks. . .
ttly diffy note, I need help, here's the problem: Find the value of the variable: 4= 2/9(4y2)
I'm only smart when I'm bored, guess what? I'm notI'm back, but for how long? Meeting someone from the past is just one of the great parts of life, isn't?

Only when the equation under the square root only consists of multiplying or dividing numbers. As in this case they don't eliminate eachother because there are additions instead.
Further more, in order to remove the square roots on the left for instance, you'd have to multiply both sides with the square root of (20^2 + x^2). On the left that way you'd remove the square root, but on the right you'd just be multiplying with a new square root, so it wouldn't help, that's why I'm stuck
Freakshow I'm gonna PM you how to solve that one.Intelligent Supporter, Unimportant Sir ThemePark, Advanced Intelligence Robot & Son

its not roots, its solving mutlistep equations, that problem involves recipricles. . . or something like that. . .I'm back, but for how long? Meeting someone from the past is just one of the great parts of life, isn't?

Freakshow, could you solve your equation?
Haha, you should hear my hubby: "The loony gang trying to solve multiple equations with square roots?!? "
Umm....

@Mystery, ROFL!!! Your hubby is really funny!!!
Oh, and I just checked the solution of the problem (x=10), so, I guess that the equation I created is correct...the only problem is solving it!Going on a trip around the universe on a convertible
