multiple additions vs. multiplication
(Regarding the extra credit part of the task.)
Has anybody done more research on performing N additions versus multiplication (as the EchoLisp example has done?
Initially, I performed N additions (via the add function) and kept getting much different results than the other programming examples (for 12345 repetitions).
I think it would be beneficial if the first ten multiples (1 ──► 12) would be shown so we could compare true addition via multiplicative results. -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 22:32, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
First formula now invisible on standard OS X browsers
May need tidying up to achieve formula visibility on the OS X platform. Problems may include flanking of LateX expressions with redundant white space inside <math> tags Hout (talk) 13:25, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
