A Graphing Puzzle
Posted:
Mar 6, 2007 10:41 AM


This puzzle will test your knowledge and understainding of both Quadratics and Number Sequences. Especially sequences that can be generally stated as:
....b^{2}....b^{1}...b^{0}...b^{1}...b^{2}.. Note: The exponents in the above sequence are NOT restricted to being integers!
The object of the puzzle is to creat such a number sequence which will interesect a parabola at it's vertex point and also intersect one root point. The only given is: vertex X = [Phi]
I created and solved this little puzzle in one evening. Good Luck from the old, Barnyard Physicist of Texas!
