Why are you so sure? Are you his friend?
I am sure that the poster called Grover Hughes does not know a single
bit of all what he was talking about, tha's why I challenged him and
be sure the method he mentioned is by far similar to the methods shown
in my web pages. The sci.math audience is also waiting and observing
the results of my challenges to both of you.

Now to the very specific point on ROOTS-SOLVING METHODS:

One step at the time, please.

Let us focus on the main point of this thread: The extremely simple
high-order arithmetical methods shown in my webpages, and your
allegued Hurtwitz's Root-Solving Method as being the same thing that
my methods, in such a way, that when talking about them you stated: "I
don't think the claim that these methods are in any way new stands up
to scrutiny."


Only after clarifying this point to the sci.math audience I will
procede to answer all the other
remarks you have made in this posting.

But... Please, If you don't mind, I want to ask you just two more
questions specifically related to this table you have shown on the
fifth root and your remark about the methods shown in my webpages: "I
don't think the claim that these methods are in any way new stands up
to scrutiny."


ARE YOU JUST PLAYING A JOKE OR WHAT?
HAVE YOU EVER READ A BOOK ON THE HISTORY OF MATHEMATICS?
