That is about fifteen degrees in celsius. In India, we would not run the AC in that temperature

Running over around 1000 natural numbers to check if there is a solution

No. I wrote my own code last night

>I expected you to ask many questions about that answer.

Yep, I love asking questions.

What is the addition?

If n were odd, then the last digit of the RHS would be 2 or 8 which is not possible.

Great! That is the solution from @trevorarashiro

Find the first five positive integers x and n such that x^2 + 615 == 2^n or prove that they do not exist

Read the last two lines of his rant

He cAnnot because he does not want to.

No offence, your idea of applications, especially that of measurements is ridiculous.

Mathematics can be applied to reality but we do not care.

You may have noticed this. There is a double standard going on against mathematics. You have never seen questions like “What are the real life applications of music?” or “What are the real life applications of reading good books?” But questions like “Why would anyone learn math? What are the real world applications of it?” are readily available everywhere. Why the double standards?
I view mathematics as an art form. It is not useless. I also do not believe that mathematics is important only because of its “practical applications”. Mathematics is not useful just because Gauss used it locate asteroids, or people now use it to encrypt stuff. The original appeal of mathematics does not lie there. Mathematics is useful in its own right and merit. Like I said, it’s an art form. And I shouldn't have to justify why I do mathematics.

Why is it important to define natural numbers?

Conic Sections is probably the hardest chapter in +2 level. I'll probably be able to master integration techniques with enough hardwork.
