The 17th root of 9,355,126,606 is 3.8595114 so the next-greatest prime number is 5. If this was the actual problem, then Agnes was correct. The error was Elwood saying "nine trillion", when it was actually "nine billion" See more »

Math is in the eye of the beholder, apparently
3 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The 17th root of 9000355126606 is 5.0489470278494267977744214019957 This is different from the "goofs" answer.

The computer gives a glimpse of how primitive things were. People were really afraid they would take over the lives of all the people.

You can't ask certain kinds of questions and expect to get answers even today. They just are sequencers - one thing after another.

The old man in the cave and Mr. Whipple are great examples of the fear and expectations people had back then.

What is lacking is ... what exactly? The intelligence of a 4 year old? We can't define it.
