Transcendental numbers!

What are those?!?!

Well, here’s your answer!


Transcendental numbers are numbers that you can’t do anything to it to get an integer. Besides power of 0, divide by itself, blah blah, blah.

More formal: In mathematics, a transcendental number is a real number or complex number that is not an algebraic number—that is, not a root (i.e., solution) of a nonzero polynomial equation with integer coefficients.

Look, I copied that all from Wikipedia, which I should not trust. π, e, Chaitin’s constant, and a WHOLE LOT OTHERS ARE TRANSCENDENTAL. Not √2, because if squared, it is 2.

φ also isn’t a transcendental number, since (2φ-1)^2 = 5. Wow!

I’ll be back with other stuff.
