Answering with "2" sounds too simple...

It's 2 right? It did take me a couple of minutes, nice mind excercise. ;)

Ah OK sorry, I thought you had done something weird and complicated :lol: Yep, correct answer.

"2" is technically not correct. The "=" should be "≈" for the "2" answer to be correct.

For example,

8096 = 5

and

9881 = 5

is not possible. It's reasonable that "9" = "6" ... but "9" + "6" = "8" ? or "0" = "9" ?

If "=" is defined as a topological mapping function to the integers, it's totally valid. The function need not be one-one.

oh, thanks for clarifying :weirdo:

There are two functions. f:Z-->Z assigns, for example, the number 1 to 0, the number 0 to 1, the number 0 to 2, etc. (where Z=the integers). Then there is a quaternary map on Z, written as a word of length 4, that simply produces the sum of the "letters" in the word. The expression "8809=6" means g((f,f,f,f)(8,8,0,9))=6, where (f,f,f,f) is the cartesian product of f with itself 4 times (it is a map from Z^4 to Z^4). The composition g((f,f,f,f)) is certainly not injective, given the brief glimpse into the behavior of the function f that was provided in the statement of the problem, and especially given the fact that decomposing an integer into a sum of 4 other integers is a highly non-unique process. Hope that makes sense gurl. :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

Sorry, no :tape: . Most of us are pre-schooler here. Can you elaborate on your solution/concept :lol: .

I'm studying chemical engineering and I don't understand a fuck out of this :weirdo:

I've always hated calculus anyway... Algebra on the other hand :hearts:

It's 2.

Spoiler: It's the number of enclosed spaces. ;)

OK, I'll play.

Basically we are computing the rank of the first homology group of each of the given topological spaces.

Win.

An extension to homotopy groups would ensure that the problem can be further generalized.

Sorry I was just being unnecessarily pedantic :D My point is that it's perfectly legitimate for 8096 and 9881 to both "equal" 5. As moby pointed out, they are homotopy equivalent. :oh:
