I'm sorry Diamond,

The Second Life Answers Forum is only staffed by volunteers not unlike yourself. Some even have a sense of humor.

[Not so] Advanced mathematics issues we leave for the staff of Linden Lab to resolve, Of course the one issue preventing a swift answer to your post is that the staff of Linden Lab rarely visit this august forum

I'm so terribly glad you were able to solve your rather formulaic problem.

Knowing that we have some very well credentialed members that confribute to the forum. perhaps you can assist us on something more mundane like:

# Landau's problems

At the 1912 International Congress of Mathematicians, Edmund Landau listed four basic problems about primes. These problems were characterised in his speech as "unattackable at the present state of science" and are now known as Landau's problems. They are as follows:

1. Goldbach's conjecture: Can every even integer greater than 2 be written as the sum of two primes?
2. Twin prime conjecture: Are there infinitely many primes p such that p + 2 is prime?
3. Legendre's conjecture: Does there always exist at least one prime between consecutive perfect squares?
4. Are there infinitely many primes p such that p − 1 is a perfect square? In other words: Are there infinitely many primes of the form n2 + 1? (sequence A002496 in OEIS).

As of 2016, all four problems are unresolved.

This would be a fun one to get resolved by the end of this year.

Not in base 3, where 2+1=10.

;-).
