Yes, correct it does work in Phinary.

I mean 2 as in 10.01, sorry for not specifying that.
Lol, can't believe I spelled it repition, now it's stuck in your quote forever.

Ya....How dumb of me... Ok, so it does work in Phinary, just as in any other base. Wow, I went from last night(well, technically 2 nights ago) not knowing what phinary is, to tonight knowing how to expand it, simplify it, do math on it, etc....but I still got fumbled by one stupid thing....THE DECIMAL POINT! Hey, I see what you did there....now you got it in 2 quotes! Ok, I'm off to bed, hopefully the global post count doesn't hit 100,000 until I get up, currently at 99,969.

Hmm, does it work in base 0.1?


22 Aug 2009, 06:34 

windwakr
I don't see why not. It's just backwards base 10.

But how can you have digits 1,2,...,9 when the base is not even 1? Not possible! The digits have to be less than the base, basic rules of base conversion.

Ya, I noticed that after reading the wiki page for a bit.
But it could be represented as 0 and 1. With 1 meaning just 0.1 to that positional power. If you sat there long enough you could figure out the rules of the base. Here's 1 in base 0.1: 1.0 , which is 0.1^0 I'm sure you could figure a way of expansion out to clear up the ^0 spot to allow for any number to be represented, just like in Phinary.

Actually, I take that back. Just look at the powers:
Code: 5=0.00001 4=0.0001 3=0.001 2=0.01 1=0.1 0=1 1=10 2=100 3=1000 4=10000 Even if you could represent it like I said, I don't think you could possibly represent a lot of the numbers. How would you represent two? Answer, impossible. you could do 0.1^0+(0.1^n) where n goes on infinitely, and you'd still just end up with 1.(1)

Ok, that just leaves:
http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?p=83742#83742 (half solved, prize pending) Maybe you can create some more questions now, no one seems to be able to figure that one out. I mean, we see the error, but not how to fix it. Also, if you look at it, I had the answer to the Phinary question at the beginning of the page 9, when I did 10.01(2)/(phi^7)1......But that damn Phinary point threw me off. http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?p=99913#99913

Infinity is not prime.
Let me prove it: We know that: ∞ * 2 = ∞ Therefore: ∞ / 2 = ∞ ;with no remainder So that means that ∞ is not prime because it is divisible by 2. Oh but wait ... Infinity is prime: Let me prove it: We know that: ∞ * number = ∞ And that: ∞ + 1 = ∞ Therefore: (∞ + 1) * number = ∞ Rearrange: ∞ / number = ∞ + 1 So that means that ∞ is prime because all possible divisors will give a remainder of 1

Infinity is not a number.

revolution: Borsuc is correct; you cannot using infinity like other numbers and so it is considered not to be a number. You are also forgetting that there are different types of infinity (countable and uncountable).
