I can answer almost anything that is sent in. If I can't, I'll let you know, but I don't expect that to happen much.


Most questions on number theory, divisibility, primes, Euclidean algorithm, Fermat`s theorem, Wilson`s theorem, factorisation, euclidean algorithm, diophantine equations, Chinese remainder theorem, group theory, congruences, continued fractions.

I can answer all questions up to, and including, graduate level mathematics. I am more likely to prefer questions beyond the level of calculus. I can answer any questions, from basic elementary number theory like how to prove the first three digits of powers of 2 repeat (they do, with period 100, starting at 8), all the way to advanced mathematics like proving Egorov's theorem or finding phase transitions in random networks. I do not understand why Number Theory is not included in "Advanced Mathematics."

Hello Isabel  It can't.  When you have irrationals in the denominator, the trick is to multiply Numerator and denominator by the surd conjugate of the denominator.  In this case it is √(7r-3) + √

Hello Kenneth  The amount of work done, w, is proportional to the number of men, m,  the hours per day, h, and the number of days.  So w = kmhd  substituting gives w = k*24*8*15 = 2880k  Now the same w
