Ircher decided that the universe could use a number. He applied the secret power of base conversion to form the next number.
17 (in decimal) converted to octal = 21

Among the Greek letters that existed, there were pi and tau. Now there would be zeta(2), though that being a function with a number Coug had already created as a sole argument, he couldn't directly use the function. However, he knew what the function would output:
Fun Fact: You can construct any square root of a rational length using just a compass and a straightedge. Speaking of square roots...
sqrt(15) = sqrt(15)

No, it would only require one compass and one straightedge. You would just have to do the process twice.
sqrt(sqrt(sqrt(15)) = sqrt(sqrt(sqrt(15)))
(Because why not?)

"Square roots of square roots?" Coug asked. He saw that, by simplification, the square root of the square root was the fourth root, and the square root of the square root of the square root was the eighth root. But why did the root have to be a power of two? Odd roots had the power that taking one of a negative real number gave another negative real number.
With ten and e already here as the two most common bases for logarithms, D3f set out to use the third most common base for a logarithm instead.
lg(10) = lg(10) (log base-2)
Somewhere in the distance, a computer scientist cried out in joy.
Going to be getting progressively less and less active onsite due to work schedule, but still very accessible over Discord (find me in the MS Discord!)
Idk I'm an engineer, so "log" is common and "ln" is natural
255.75-i - i = 255.75-2i

For computer scientists, log always indicates the base-2 log. That allows us to say things like binary search is O(log(N)). So yeah, log depends on context and who you are talking to.
1023 + 1 = 1024

If you ask Rick Astley for his copy of the movie 'Up', he can not give it to you as he will never give you up. However, by refusing to do so, he lets you down. Thus creating the Astley Paradox. *glares at Sirius*Well played my friend, well played. - Aristophanes
Ah, e and pi. Hmm pi+e=pi+e (5.85987448205) 'True pie', said the Growlithe
