# EXPONENTS

Can you prove that $1^{3}-6^{2}=0$ (Hint:the title may be a misstatement.Just use commonsense.)

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

A equation are related to a logical approach and prove.You are using your imagination beyond logical approach that not acceptable in the field of mathematics and engineering.

edsel you forgot logic rulezz mathematics and engineering

Somesh,you are not understand what i said about.You are using Philosophy not logical and scientific approach.Your equation are not acceptable in the field of mathematics and engineering.

It is actually 1 cube equivalent to 6 squares present in a cube!!!

ya u r crrect

The question has no sense!what kind of mathematics or engineering allied subject are you using?This is not hydraulics,mechanics,theory of structure,surveying and etc.Maybe your trying to prove something.Good for you.

listen bro everything in discussions is not mandatory to be related to academics.Some interesting questions mayb posed just for fun......By the way i know this question's joke but still its not nonsense....okay!!!

Tim, he just means that 1 cube consists out of 6 squares ...

yes crrect

And if you can't solve this question then please vote up this question so that more users may see this question...

$1^3 - 6^2 = 1 - 36 = -35 \not = 0.$

So, no.

no itzz not crrect....try again with a new approach.....and listen don't thing too hard and no need to be so mathematical.just apply some common sense.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

No, it's not possible to prove, because it's not true. I can get zero with those numbers in that order, if you wish:

$1 \times 3 - 6 \div 2 = 0$

if u can't prove it then vote up

- 6 years, 10 months ago

just take a look of it......itzzz quite a simple question
