The pinnacle of this series of modular arithmetic, we prove a theorem that ties everything together!
In the penultimate episode of modular arithmetic, we discuss the relation between inverses, and multiplication tables, and set the scene for part 5!
Explore the world of proofs while learning about the inner workings of modular arithmetic!
Srinivasa Ramanujan Aiyangar (22 December 1887 – 26 April 1920) is a 20th century mathematician who lived during the British Raj. Today, we are going to talk about 3 numbers related to Ramanujan: 1729, 3, and -1/12. Let us start the blog with 1729. Ramanujan’s professor Godfrey Harold Hardy came to visit him in hospital… Continue reading Srinivasa Ramanujan, taxicabs, and nested radicals
