    I have a number.

    0.70710678118654752440084436210485

    find an equation in which the answer matches first 32 decimal spots provided here. the result can be longer. Such as an irrational number. The beginning digits of the answer must match though.

    Very good. Now just a little harder.

    squaring was still a viable method it seems.

    x - 0.22360679774997896964091736687313 = 0

    x-x=0
    You already know x.

    I've got two more, slowly getting harder. Similar though. Than I'll provide a reason.

    First

    Is there any way I could get someone to move this to the computer science section before I ask my next question?

    You are awesome. Thank you. I don't want to be cluttering a forum with irrelevant info.

    I did not believe there was any math that could provide someone with a result... but if I was mistaken, the post would have belonged in the math forum.

    The answer by the way, was

    I want to write a program that condenses a file into a mathematical problem. It's just for fun, and I know that it would not be the best way of compressing information... But it's an idea I've had for some time, and I think that it would be cool.

    the basic idea- Each 0 or 1 can be converted into a number as representation of what it was once. 0's into some numbers and 1's as the rest. 1 of the millions of permutations for each program most likely could be rewritten as part of an irrational mathematical problem using 3 pieces of info.

    1- the length of original file
    2- what numbers represent a 1 or a zero
    3- the problem its self.

    It's much more complicated than that, but I hope you get the picture. My only problem, is... How do you write a computer program that can take

    0.23142151613240604494340530933257

    and without any reference, find that those random numbers equal to the 32nd place?

    No reply after all this time? Ok. Does someone even have a statement that could prove that this was impossible? Like "it defies information theory" I don't think it does... does it?
    Here's the problem with questions like "what would we see if we traveled faster than the speed of light". Since the rules that govern the universe as we understand them do not allow for such a possibility, to imagine such an event forces us to abandon those rules. But that leaves us no guide by which to answer the question. We have no idea as to what rules to replace them with, and we can't give an answer. - Janus
