# Find the position within an array larger than 3D (New Features)

Hey, hey, hey, STOP.

I have found my error in 4D.

It is a error of conception dimendional.

Well, let's let W = (5 * 4 * 3 * 2) = 120 elements, Ok!

w = (x * y * z * "D")

x = 1D

y = x * y = 2D

z = x * y * z = 3D

D = number of times that repeats the block x, y, z

Let's see:

w = (5 * 4 * 3 * 2) = 120

We see that "2" is the number of times

Now comes my error of conception,

I have assumed that 4D was an extension of 3D, that was my error of conception.

As we see from my calculation / deduction wrong in my post:

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

We have now in the 4D = 2.

I Understand That at level 3, the last layer,

and has an element Each extension of 2 more items of the fourth dimension.

So I think 20 elements of the last level * 2 = 40 elements more extensions.

I still think if 3D = 60 items + 40 items in the fouth dimension = 100 items.

That item is not the 120 Mathematically speaking.

This is a ERROR!!!

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

... Then the fourth dimension (4D) are the times you repeat the block: x, y, z.

Now, by extension ...

we know what they mean the fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth,..... dimensions:

An example:

w = (2 * 2 * 2 * 2 * 2) = (a b c d e)

a * b * c = 2 * 2 * 2 = 8 = 3D starting block

8 * d (d as we have said is the number of times to repeat xyz) then 8 * 2 = 16 elements to the fourth dimension

we ...

16 * e ("e" also indicates the number of times to repeat the previous block, xyz + d)

16 * 2 = 32 total elements in W (2 * 2 * 2 * 2 * 2)

I believe that I have understood the concept of multidimensional array.

Thank you all for your interest in explaining the concepts of multidimensional array.
