Exactly what part of that is calculus?

Why are you watching anime instead of going to school?
>>
>Can you solve this problem?
but there isn't a problem there
>>
There's no calc in that, and there's no problem either, it's just a bunch of mathematical symbols without an equals sign.
>>
You could transform each of these lines in problems by adding a equal sign in the end of each one and asking for x.
And it would still be piss easy.
You're stupid, OP.
>>
I know this is bait and all, but that isn't calculus

That (x+5)² does not lead to what it suggests, same goes for the (2x+1)(x+3). There's shitton of quadratic equations and you could just find their roots to lead to the prime form and that's it, all the equations have no relation to each other.

By people writing computer programs. That was the point of my reply.

Computer programs can do all math that is currently possible, and better than any human could.

Here's another example of a computer program

def square(x):

And let's say there's no math experts. Who's going to come up with the math to write your efficient algorithms huh?

Take the determinant example from this guy here: >>101481116

Calculating the determinant directly would require order N! calculations. Calculating it by using gaussian elimination would only require order N^3 calculations. But if you're a code monkey who just write the most naive programs possible then you'll be stuck with the first (extremely) inefficient algorithm.

It's pretty obvious you have no expertise on anything.
>>
>>101481369
I distinctly remember having that as one of the first examples shown to you for defining functions in SICP. Of course it was Lisp though.

You saying SICP is wrong?

>>101481351
>Some areas of math can get extremely abstract, to the point where they can't be represented by computers.

The program gets more complex.

I don't think you realize the kind of math that can and be implemented in programming languages. There's literally nothing that a human does better.
>>
>Can you solve this problem?

Fucking squids.

>>101481500
>There's literally nothing that a human does better.
Proofs.
>>
>>101481500

It's used as an example because it's simple to understand.

But using the square(x) macro means that you're going to get undetectable code errors any time you find a situation when that x has a ++ or -- operator attached, since square++ wouldn't return the square++, but x++*x++.

And that's just an example. Any kind of function macro dependant on numbers breaks down when there's the least bit of variation applied.

If you need to have a function written a lot of times with variations, just use templates.
>>
>>101481488
>And let's say there's no math experts. Who's going to come up with the math to write your efficient algorithms huh?

If there was no math experts then they wouldn't be written. You are not getting the point.

I am clarifying your incorrect definition of computer program, because you seemed to not understand what that meant. You said


>>computer programs can do all maths
>Only said by people with almost no math or computer science knowledge.

So you're saying computer programs doing math can mean someone writing math down in a word processor? News flash: Latex doesn't come up with the math itself, somebody had to sit down and work out the details before typing it.

You said:

>Computer programs can do all math that is currently possible, and better than any human could.

How about this: write a computer program (or at least outline one) that can prove, from scratch, the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality. It's an extremely basic formula that undergrads can easily learn in their second year, so you can easily show off your claim on it. Go ahead. I'll wait.
