    Hi members,

    Re: One math puzzle

    Examples of transcendental functions include sin(), cos(), tan(), ln(), exp(). Any infinite polynomial qualifies as a transcendental function.

    I'm was initially inclined to say that 3 2's cannot span the entire set of integers even with the combinations offered by transcendentals.
    Then I got to thinking - we are talking about infinite polynomials here.
    When I cut this number from another site, I was expecting to offer a counterexample

    Now I'm beginning to wonder whether it's possible.
