You add 1 to the golden ratio to get its square. How do you find higher powers?
Yatir from Israel wrote this article on numbers that can be written as $ 2^n-n $ where n is a positive integer.
Can you find the value of this function involving algebraic
fractions for x=2000?
This sequence of polynomials has similarities to the sequence of
Sometimes, as in this case, results are easy to state but not so
easy to prove so we make an exception here in not asking for a
proof of the general conjecture. It is no bad thing to cultivate a
sense of what is likely to be true and a sense of curiosity about
why it should be true but also to see that one needs to go on
learning more to be able to do more.
