    So wait, you have items:

    You have to get 4?

    This is really easy assuming you can repeat numbers infinitely.

    Basically, yes.

    The program would be pretty simple, in an inefficient manner.

    Actually it'd be really easy. Just take the first number in the table, divide it by itself, then add it that quantity to itself times.
    (102015 / 102015) + (102015 / 102015) + (102015 / 102015) + (102015 / 102015) = 4

    The answer seems a trivial yes. Because you can always do x/x=1, x/x + x/x=2, and voila, after that you can always reconstruct any number.

    I mean sure you could do that with basic operations, but why would you want to? Such a waste of time. Seems like understanding bits/bytes/memory would be more useful and not waste time getting an answer you know for certain already.

    Computer Science classes (and I mean like CS I, II, and III) are all about algorithms. So I guess I see the point.

    Impressive numbers, especially considering the 4766-pound Tesla Model S Signature Performance version will nail 60 mph in 4.0 seconds and the quarter in 12.4 seconds at 112.5 mph, with a top speed of 133 mph.

    Here's the kicker, there's no way to implement the algorithm without already knowing the size of the array.

    okay found a way. Get into a borders tap, but not by clicking the "borders" button.

    just let me fucking remove it. I'm not making an excel spreadsheet here; I just have some data I wish to write into some rows and columns.

    it seems self evidently possible to me

    like if you have unlimited + - / * operations you can turn any one number into any other number.

    the hard part is coding that, damn.

    But why would the BK here have wifi anyway, literally next door to one of the largest corporations in the state providing it a steady stream of hungry white collar workers who have ipads for just dicking around pretty much LEGITIMATE OFFICE WORK

    Not that I'm annoyed or anything, my phone has LTE so I can just use it as a hotspot like it's the goddamn dark ages

    Pretty much, you can do cute things like mutiplying all the numbers together and making sure it's less than n to save a bunch of time to keep from attempting anything impossible.

    Determine size of datatype on your system, count until you hit EOF/array out of range. There I used your numbers uniquely in their memory form.

    This Chinese buffet in town keeps taunting me, its cheaper than a salad from mcdonalds, delicious, and can leech wifi off the gas station next door

    It has gained me ten pounds in 3 months, so I don't know what is in their beef and broccoli but it ain't low carb

    I had my meatball sub. It was delicious. Even better, as I was walking through the mall, I bumped into a friend of mine I haven't seen in a while. Thank you for the idea, whoever suggested it.

    It's not really an inherent problem with touch screens, more an issue with overly complicated interfaces that are accessible to the driver.

    That thing BMW did with the multi-level menus controlled by a little twisty joystick thing was just as dangerous.

    god I fucking hate computers.

    right click, delete cell?

    can't find any such option. Rows and columns I can delete just fine. But god forbid I delete a cell.

    You want to delete the contents? Or delete the cell and shift everything down/up?

    I want there to not be a cell there. There is nothing in them yet, I just have nothing to put in the top left corner.

    Fill it with black.

    Fair enough. I just still don't see an improvement over physical buttons for things like radio control. Something the driver can navigate by feel without removing their eyes from the road.
