That's better: now the symbols don't look like the ghosts of overfull hboxes

So obliging of my knee to dislocate in order to make space for my baggy trousers when I kneel.

Putting the finishing touches to my history of mathematics in the north-east of England, "E to the Why Aye"

@valrus @halcy except some people might object that "divide the dough into 1 piece" isn't really a step

@halcy @valrus without any constraints, I'd say the answer is the sequence [n], interpreting "smallest" as "length of sequence". If it's "lowest mean of the elements of the sequence", then yes I think it's prime factorisation

Me: ooh, maybe 1.5MB is too big for an entire package that students need to load to do their exam.

My employer: let's stick a different 1.6MB "hero image" at the top of each of our public-facing pages

Can't not read it as "finitely generated abelian grape"

@antoinechambertloir est-ce que vous dessinez un rectangle et la ligne diagonale, ou deux triangles? Vou pouvez jouer avec les paramètres "line join" et "line cap"?

Idea: a theorem verifier with the mindset of a toddler. When it starts it rejects everything, so you have to show it the two theorems it already knows like a hundred times before it'll admit that some things are, in fact, true

@pkra yep. Vertices have labels like "vertex labelled a" abd edges labels like "edge between a and b"

Today I have had a lovely time writing a Numbas extension for graph theory.

@bmreiniger yeah, I have a proper marking algorithm for part d somewhere else that I need to copy over. And you are correct that I've got h wrong - I made an off-by-one error in my working-out and only fixed one occurrence

Working on some group theory, I'm writing out words on generators, which I've labelled with letters.
I just noticed that \(e\) has order 2, so

\[ beef = bf \]

It turns out this is real-world maths, after all!

@dudeney_puzzles crikey, Dudeney, you could've just given up on that framing when it became clear it added nothing to the puzzle.
Instead, here we are, three toots of disclaimer in, still nowhere near motivating the puzzle
