While you may not have as much fun solving math problems as you would in studying other subjects, at least you wouldn’t have to feel afraid every time your math teacher gives you homework and you will learn how to approach math problems.
Now, mathematicians have a way to figure out the range of answers, and a group of them — including Houston and Pantone — are actively working to figure out a formula that combines Egan’s work and the anonymous proof into a cohesive formula.
“It might be possible to crack the thing completely open,” Houston says.
At most, you’d need to watch 93,924,230,411 episodes to accomplish the task.
There’s still a ways to go to narrow down the exact answer, but they’re getting there.
