I interpreted the wording of the problem to mean, inserting one digit between each pair of (adjacent) digits. 2d comment Examples of common false beliefs in mathematics So, what does "$V$ is a vector space over field $P$ $(e_1,\dots,e_n)$" mean? 2d comment Adherent value of sin(sqrt(n)) MO is for questions about Mathematics research. 2d revised Most 'unintuitive' application of the Axiom of Choice? edited tags 2d comment Examples of common false beliefs in mathematics What does that little subscript $p$ on the equals sign mean? 2d awarded Nice Answer Feb 11 comment Area of an irregular, n-sided, non-intersecting (edges) polygon algorithm OP doesn't use the word, "convex", so I'm not sure this is what's wanted. It may be one is required to have on the boundary all of the $n$ points given. Feb 7 comment How big are the prime factors of $2^kp - 1$? How far up have you tested this, Ant? Feb 3 revised Recreational mathematics: where to search? fixed URL Feb 2 comment Number of ways of tiling a $2 \times n$ rectangle using rectangles with integer sides At OEIS, it says $a_n=6a_{n-1}-7a_{n-2}$. I wonder how one gets that? Feb 2 comment Homeomorphism between (-1,1)×[-1,1) and [-1,1]×[-1,1) Why have you posted the same question twice?
