How can you sum a single number?

Well, I think that

[tex]\sqrt{1}=1[/tex]

and

[tex]\sqrt{0}=0[/tex]

both work...

[tex]\sqrt{1}=1[/tex]

and

[tex]\sqrt{0}=0[/tex]

both work...

Did you mean something like this:

Has the following equation any solutions:

[tex]x+x=\sqrt{x}[/tex] ?

for example:

<sum> of x^y

can it equal the square root of y

<sum> of x^y

can it equal the square root of y

What's the variable you sum after and what possible values can it take...?

It still doesn't make any sense,sorry...Are u referring to a power/geometric series...?

Summation notain of x^1 to (x-1)^1= 1^1+2^1+3^1+4^1......(x-1)^1

[tex] \sum_{k=1}^{n} k^{power} [/tex]

If the sum streches to infinity,then there could be made a connection to the zeta-Riemann function...

This is grade K-12 Dex...dextercioby said:If the sum streches to infinity,then there could be made a connection to the zeta-Riemann function...

Whatzzupdude, please try to explain what you exactly mean by 'summation of a number'.

What ARE you talking about??whatzzupboy said:

This is the sum of of the first (x-1) integers; it is not a summation "notain" (whatever that is) of x^1 to (x-1)^1.

Thank you Dextercioby, that is exactly what I meant can

[tex] \sum_{k=1}^{n} k^{power} [/tex]

equal the root of n

x^y=x + y?

if so than 2^2= 2+2......but I seirously doubt thats what you mean

why dont you add the definition summation into the glossary :)

You're asking if

[tex]\sum_{k=1}^n k^a = \sqrt{n}[/tex]

for some constants a and n?

--J

[tex]\sum_{k=1}^n k^a = \sqrt{n}[/tex]

for some constants a and n?

--J

[tex]\sum_{k=1}^1 1^1 = \sqrt{1}[/tex]

Not sure about non-trivial ones though.
