1. ## One math puzzle

Hi members,
Can you write any integer with three '2's and with the help of any algebraic or transcendental function used in mathematics?

2. ## Re: One math puzzle

How You define transcedental function?

3. ## 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.

Algebraic functions are add, subtract , multiply ,power and roots .
Transcendental functions includes exponential ,logarithm ,trignometric ,inverse -trignometric functions
