How to fix MAXVAL problems...

I wouldn't use it for sequence numbers if they did…

Why not? When you run out of all the numbers along a+0i you simply move along to, say, a+0.00000001i....


I got MAXVAL problems but an INT ain't one
I'll show myself out.

Complex numbers aren't exactly known for being wellordered...

I see no problem using a 4D graph to represent quaternions...

ObOT: one internet to the first to recognise what this is:

Best lightbox expansion ever, 10/10

Oops


An equation in 2 unknowns (x and y).

Something with six major clauses? (Oh, and it's at least in the complex domain.)

a formula.
Indeed, but what for?
An equation in 2 unknowns (x and y).
The best kind of correct...
Oh, and it's at least in the complex domain.
To paraphrase the author
if you don't some of the roots will be undefined

One equation takes away 1 degree of freedom. If x and y are real numbers, the problem is 2dimensional, and the result is 1dimensional (a set of lines).
In this case however, the
= 0i
at the end suggests the problem is intended to be complex. That means the single equation takes away 2 degrees of freedom (real and imaginary parts are 0) and the solution is 2dimensional in a 4dimensional space. Which rather puts a damper on the plotting.

You could project it into 3space I guess…

2 dimensions are sufficient.
