### Username not known

Hi, For some reason, I can't login to my account. PE says 'Username not known'.

Can anyone let me know why this is happening?

### Re: Problem 613

It's just a mathematical description RishadanPort. To make it more abstract, if you randomly select a point inside a right angled triangle and randomly choose some direction to draw a line (starting from the point we chose), what is the probability that the line intersects the hypotenuse?

We cannot make two consecutive posts in the same solution forum. I think you should be able to edit your post and add the content in the same post.

### Re: Problem 671

671 Hi All, Tiling which are identical after rotating the loop about its axis considered different? Only if I consider them different, I get F_4(3) = 104. Else am stuck at 92. I'm not sure whether 'reflecting horizontally or vertically would give a different tiling, these tilings are to be counted ...

Many thanks to the PE team for the new style. The site looks great with the new styling.

### Re: An Infinite Prime Number Generator

I changed the code to remove the loop-checking and use modified-step values but still no improvements in timing. For example, the mod-2 version takes ~ 75 secs to list all primes upto 10^8, the mod-6 version takes ~ 85 secs whereas the step-adjusted-mod-6 version takes ~ 95 secs. step-adjusted-mod-6...

### Re: An Infinite Prime Number Generator

Thanks v6ph1. I too arrived at the same loop for making the program slow. But I think it may be slightly different. Rather than the loop checking, I think the runs more often as the chance of hitting the numbers with mod in the given set becomes low. That I think is the trade-off in the higher mod v...

### Re: an old maths olympiad question

@ jaap , I think you did all the heavy lifting leaving just the algebra to me. The key to solving this problem is to pick the 'central angle' as the variable of interest. Though the 'cubic' approach ended nowhere, it reminded me of the trick of evaluating $\sin(\pi/5)$ exactly, which I kinda used to...

### Re: an old maths olympiad question

... It is straightforward to see that: A1A2 = 2sin(x) A1A3 = 2sin(2x) A1A4 = 2sin(3x) From here, we have, $\displaystyle\frac{1}{\sin x}=\frac{1}{\sin 2x}+\frac{1}{\sin 3x}$ $\displaystyle\sin 2x=\frac{\sin x \sin 3x}{\sin 3x-\sin x}=\frac{\sin x \sin 3x}{2\sin x-4 \sin^3 x}=\frac{\sin x\sin 3x}{2 ...

Hi All, This post is about an analysis of a game described in Goldratt's best seller 'The Goal'. The game is as follows: Consider $b$ bins of infinite capacity in a row with an imaginary Source of infinite matchsticks. Matchsticks are transferred to the bins in the following manner: For every bin, m...
