The derivative f'(x)=2

The integral f*(x)=x^2

--------------------------------

NOW f(x)=2*x IS A PROPERLY DEFINED FUNCTION

AND YOU CAN EXTRAPOLATE TOWARDS INFINITY

The End of any Credibility you had left Greene.

WHAT'S THE DERIVATIVE of AD(n) = 9-L(n,n) ?

Applied to the list UTM(index,digitpos) MOD 10 ?

Ignoring your error of incompetence re: 0.49999.. <=> 0.50000..
