[edit] Solutions

X = 9 - M.J

Yup. And you have 3 mans.--Tiggera 17:38, 28 Nov 2004 (MST)

[edit] Square Root of 81

Why does the article say 'If solved, X equals ±9.'? Isn't is exactly 9? Kvb 16:10, 9 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Multiply 9 x 9 ... you get 81. Multiply -9 x -9 ... what do you get? -- tomstiff 16:11, 9 Jun 2005 (UTC)

[edit] False Claims

The claim that x = 14 is the only solution making logx14 an integer is extremely false and I don't know why people insist on keeping that version of the article. Check it out, find a good calculator that can evaluate logb(n)14 for b(n) = 141/n for any integer non-zero integer n. In fact, (141/n)n = 14n/n = 141 = 14 which tells us that logb(n)14 = n for b(n) = 141/n.

x=14 is the only integer value of x that yields an integer result. No one said x had to be an integer -- tomstiff 14:44, 9 Jun 2005 (UTC)

You don't even need a calculator to verify. The log of a number is the power to which the base much be raised to equal the number. If the base is the square root of 14, the power to which *that* number much be raised to equal 14 is 2. The same applies for all integer roots (e.g. cube root). -- tomstiff 14:45, 9 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Exactly what was said above. Thanks for leaving something resembling this in the article.

Wanted to restate with less equations and more English. Good catch. -- tomstiff 19:02, 9 Jun 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Was this ever on the Videlectrix site?

Or did Thy Dungeonman 3 replace it because an old edit said it was available for preview, just not for play? -- 17:51, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

Dot com added that it was on the website, but the page only mentions two equations it showed, both of which are accounted for without the website (between Pay Plus! and PQPreview.) I can't even remember it what it looked like on the site and think Dot com might just have been mistaken. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 18:17, 2 May 2006 (UTC)
