In simplest form. If company A patented 5+5=10. Then company B patented 20/2=10. Then company C patented Sqrt(100)=10. Would companies B and C be infringing company A's patent because it produces the same output. Even though the inputs and functions used are different. Based on what I read these days, that is what it sound like. If you produce the same output, even when the code is completely different, or even a different coding language, you are likely infringing the patent. Is this how bad software patents are.

Server 2012 R2, Core 2 Duo 3.0 GHz, 4 GB DDR2, 3TB RAID 5 array all in a ridiculously heavy SuperMicro tower. I use mine for the media content my Roku accesses and backing up our three PCs. It also functions as a Domain, DNS, DHCP, File, and Print server for the 4 PCs, 2 laptops and 3 smartphones and 3 tablets.
