let's see who on mastodon is in the 2%!!!!
@hierarchon I fucking give up, the answer is Deez nuts anyway
@hierarchon uhh hold on let me re-read my algebra texts and i'll get back to you
whoever wrote this is an asshole, because the index variable i in the exact sequence isn't actually specified anywhere, and I don't think this actually holds for all possible i (try i = n+1, for instance - the middle term vanishes, but the second and fourth don't, so this can't be exact)
@hierarchon Hah, such an elementary problem is nothing to my advanced intellect.
However, it would be unfair of me to spoil the answer. I will leave it to the rest of you to sort it out.
@hierarchon uhhh 69420?
@hierarchon *brought to tears by the beauty of mathematics*
@hierarchon oh, i love* the putnam
* was afraid to even try taking
The answer is waffles
@hierarchon i can feel my brain seeping out of my nostrils
@hierarchon i know for a fact that burger is 1/2 but that's as far as I got
@hierarchon contravariant? derived functor? When did this leave math and enter programming?
@moonbolt the way mathematicians use 'functor' is very different from the way the c++ nerds use it (but closer to how the haskell nerds use it)
@hierarchon wait, C++ has functors?
@moonbolt a 'functor' in c++ means an object you can call (i.e., that implements `operator()`)
@hierarchon that's just /function/ in the broad sense, or /callable/.
@moonbolt i never said it was a good name!
@hierarchon what is this, send help
@hierarchon this hurts
H^*(🌭;🍔) = 🍔[🍟]/(🍟^(n+1))
where 🍟 is of degree 🍇
I gave up after hotdog = P^n(R).
@hierarchon delet this >:(
@hierarchon Okay listen I'm dumb as fuck so while I can appreciate the surface-level joke, is there another, secret layer where this is actually a solvable thing? Or is it just nonsense?
@hierarchon it has no solution because cookie is never defined and could be zero, which would cause hamburger to also be undefined.
