re: Fibs and primes PRIVATE REMARKS | Comment 4 of 6 |
(In reply to Fibs and primes by broll)

1. Since your Email address is hidden I use this channel
to convey  some advice. Hope you don't mind.

2.  Reasoning OK, but for the sake of claritu  leave 
   paragraph 4.  with a. and b. only ,  so that 4c  will be par. 5.

3. Add paragraph 6., starting with : So we have proven ...etc

4. If you EDIT more than once , you may erase the previous remarks like "Edited..bla bla.." and leave only the last one.
