Bruno, In other posts I have seen you mention that the rule of succession is not enough, that addition and multiplication are needed. Why is it that it stops at multiplication, and not exponentiation or tetration? Is it enough to say some form of iteration + succession are required? (e.g. a for loop with succession gives addition, a for loop with addition yields multiplication, etc.) Jason --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
