Find the first digit before and after the decimal point in the base ten expansion of (√2 + √3)2011.
For an extra challenge, solve this puzzle without using a computer program.
(In reply to The Broll guesses...
Why did you stop at (a+b)^2000?
Your reasoning breaks down if you instead use a different large even power:
so the digits before and after the decimal point should be ...0.4...?
