1. ## I need help urgent please!

Dear friend!
Please show me the solution of the problems below:
problem1:
Find the value of x?
if x.x.x.x=2x.x+[x]
problem 2:
find the value of x?
if x.x+y.y+w.w+z.z=x.x.x.x.x.x.x+y.y.y.y.y.y.y+w.w.w. w.w.w.w+z.z.z.z.z.z.z=0

I presume you mean,
$\displaystyle x^4=2x^2+[x]$ where [ ] denotes the greatest integer function.
Then there are exactly three solutions,
$\displaystyle x=0$
$\displaystyle x=-1$
$\displaystyle x=\sqrt{1+\sqrt{3}}$.

I rather not denomstrate how I got an solution to these problem. It will take long.

If,
$\displaystyle x^2+y^2+w^2+z^2=0$
Then, $\displaystyle x=y=z=w=0$ (assuming you are working with real numbers).

Interesting point (at least I think so ) if [ ] denotes the nearest integer
then your third solution is correct, but from your words describing what
[ ] means in your solution it appears you want it to be the floor function.

The floor function of x is defined to be the greatest integer less than x
and is usually written $\displaystyle \lfloor x \rfloor$.

There is a similar ceiling function defined to be the smallest integer greater
that its argument, which is usually written $\displaystyle \lceil x \rceil$.

I found it; interesting to note that the IP address' match between these two users. Possibly they are the same one.

Considering that the two e-mail addresses are the same I would say it's more than likely.
