In the above-linked question, I told you I had got to part C. I meant up until part B, but then I made a situational approximation. I graphed \(x^y = y^x\)

and x log base y = y log base x, and I estimated the interception point to be (e,e) to a measure of precision at least 1/10,000. I

did not give you this piece of information before, to see if there was another method to obtain my answer. Could everyone please redo parts D-F for me, so I can understand why the intersection point might be (e,e)? Thanks!

Yes, the curve-ish passes through (2,4) and (4,2). The reason I say curve-ish is that the curve-ish part does not pass through \((2\sqrt{2}, 2\sqrt{2})\)

even though it looks like it does. That bad assumption is my own fault.

**The layout of Heureka’s presentation is very clear. He enumerated the formula and its details to at least two prerequisite requirements. **

You’ve had two months to study this and said nothing until now; so, **you should blôôdy well do it yourself **and present it on here for evaluation, if you are unsure of your work.

I rather like this question coming back up again.

I want to spend more time on questions like this.

Thanks again Heureka :)

Still Ginger has got a point, helperid, about you presenting you own answer or partial answer...

That was a mistake, but I wanted to see how you guys would have gotten there. Sorry again! :(

Sorry to be rude, but can someone, please answer?

I know I made a mistake not showing you the first time, but I wanted to see if anyone else got my answer. I had 2 different answers, so I reposted this with my answer to see if it made more sense. Again, it was my fault for not posting the data I got the first time.
