I retired in 2006 and bought Mathematica and a stack of math books with the goal to teach myself to become a world-class mathematician. I am on pace to achieve that goal sometime shortly after the next Ice Age.

I consider myself a Mathematical Mutt (no papers) who occasionally ventures off the back porch to play in the yard with the big dogs.

I donate regularly to the The OEIS Foundation.

When I look at the patterns, I can hear the wheels turning. When I look at the math, I find out the hamsters have died.

comment How can I view piecewise cases considered by Reduce?
@AlexeyPopkov, I'm on Linux x64. This may be a bug in the Linux version. Thanks for your help. I will contact Wolfram.

comment How can I view piecewise cases considered by Reduce?
@AlexeyPopkov, I upgraded to 10.0.1 and get the same results. So, if you clear your cache, you should get the same.

@AlexeyPopkov, I have 10.0.0 so I will update and try again.

comment How can I view piecewise cases considered by Reduce?
@AlexeyPopkov, that may be caching? I rebooted, ran it, and got the error message. I set a greater value in MaxPiecewiseCases and got the answer. Now, when I set it to 1, I get the answer. When I reboot and repeat, I get the message again.

I see pyramid on left, pyramid hole on right. I don't see a triangle.
