400: Something Good Actually Happened by Degulus on February 4, 2014 at 12:01 am Chapter: Old Comics 400th page… commentary about it being the 400th page. Share this:FacebookTumblrTwitterReddit

planning for page 800! the suspense is killing me already.

To be honest, hit by a bus certainly looks better than “death warmed over”

obviously Eric can only get nice things every 100x^2 pages (I think that is right, haven’t mathed in a while).

100^2 is 10000

and…i just got that yu meant x as a variable. 100x^2 is still wrong though.

you were thinking of 100*2^x

except that includes 2^0 and eric wasn’t on page 1.

so you’ve got to tack on there that x is a non zero positive interger

because he also isn’t on page 50 for example

100*(n+2) = pages that focus on Eric. There you go.

Hold up. I got the equation wrong. This is a geometric sequence, thus f(n) = f(n-1) * r, thus the equation is: f(n-1)*2 = pages that focus on Eric.

100(n-1)*2 = Pages that Focus on Eric. FML. Me and math don’t mix.

f = first number in the sequence

r = ratio

n as 4 breaks that. its 2, 4, 8, 16

yours is 2, 4, 6, 8, 12

its powers of 2 that you need

2^1=2. 2^2=4 2^3=8…

So the equation is still geometric sequence, just that I had the right type of sequence and the wrong equation.

100*2^(n-1) given n > 1.

I should never do anything based off of my knowledge of math. I’ll kill someone some day if I do.
