(ie, reduce 20 to 2x2x5) That is what I meant by elementary school, not "solving Euler problem #5" :)<br /><br />Or finding the least common multiple of two numbers, which probably comes up in the curriculum when you start to add and subtract fractions (ie, 1/2 + 1/3 = 3/6 + 2/6 = 5/6)Loganhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/01666070552740097721noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5450315684487412078.post-55738238493851932172012-02-20T12:31:10.459-07:002012-02-20T12:31:10.459-07:00Elementary school... of course...

I'll get Jude working on this right away! :-)<br /><br />Hey, I solve fiendish garment construction problems... so what right have I to shake my head at what you do for fun? ;-) (But I might be, anyway.
