    well, i made a mistke becuase im not used to omline math...
    it should actually be:
    n^x = (n-1)^x + xn[(n-1)^(x-2)] + (2x-5)

    that works

    also, xyuzhg and vanderwaal cannot answer becuase reasons in chat thingy.

    Ah! I see! The formula is only valid for certain values of n and x.-----------------

    ^ huh? all equations are only valid for their range of valid variables....

    if anything it sorta looks like a systems feedback equation or something... couldn't tell ya specifically what tho...

    n^x = (n-1)^x + xn[(n-1)^(x-2)] + (2x-5)
    Change to
    n^3 = (n-1)^3 + 3n(n-1) + 1

    Then it is a reduction formula?
    Like this: 11^3 = 10^3 + 33(10) + 1. You can multiply the 33*10 easily and compute 10^3 with the formula again.
    So, its purpose is a reduction formula.-----------------

    from what I saw, Wolfram said it needed more computing time and I needed to pay for it to say more results...

    Ok. New one.

    You always find it in an empty jar, dead people eat it, and if the living eat it, they die.
    EDIT:
    With seconds on the clock,
    you have to break the lock.
    The code is in this verse:
    A cube that\\'s its reverse.


    Four-digit number (and no, it\'s not 0000).

    You're not supposed to reveal the answer right away. You're supposed to let us guess, then reveal it after a while if no one guesses right.

    Here's mine:
    Sixty-eight, ninety-five, ninety nine point seven,
    The confidence of this times one, two, three.
    If you see it bigger than in lowercase then,
    you can also use it as a sum for free.


    The last part wasn't as good but I tried to make it rhyme.

    Ok guys, I was rereading this, and thought we should bring it back.

    The answer to the last one... should I tell it?
    σ (sigma).


    Ok, new riddle:
    Everyone in me is dead,
    but all the things I have are red.
    I often feel empty inside,
    as a set you can\'t divide.


    Ok I think I'm officially going to give up on rhyming riddles, as they never turn out good.

    Everyone in me is dead,

    It's Puzzle Geek's Youtube channel! All of his videos are never watched and are therefore dead!

    It's funny because the (mathematical) empty set is an entirely plausible (but probably not intended) answer.

    Everyone in me is dead: Nothing exists in the empty set, so therefore everything inside has any property. This is the vacuous truth. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacuous...
    but all the things I have are red: Vacuous truth.
    I often feel empty inside: The empty set is empty.
    as a set you can\'t divide: You cannot partition an empty set, as it has no elements.-----------------
    Hopefully PA is inconsistent.
