lol. The thread isn't old enough to need to be bumped yet... :-P | ||||

Mathax |
Lawl. Was down to 0 this morning. | ||||

I = INT ( RND * 100 ) + 1 (well, it is a random thread...) | ||||

Hannah |
Yeah, so we should be able to find stuff to say, right? :) | ||||

Mathax |
Or how about, 1. Find the radius of the circle x2 + y2 – 4x – 6y = -9. | ||||

nope the answer is... *Goes to find it.* not there. here is another one. 1. Find the vertices of the hyperbola 4x2 – y2 – 24x – 12y – 16 = 0. | ||||

Here's a piece of random PI trivia for you. Back in the days before computers, some fellow (William Shanks) actually took the time to calculate (by hand, of course!) PI to 707 digits. It took him 15 years to do it. An impressive feat! I've seen his listing in print in a couple places - one was an old Ripley's Believe It Or Not compilation.But, when it comes to "believe it or not", in this case the correct choice is NOT, because Shanks made a mistake, and only the first 527 digits were correct. Poor fellow - he died not knowing that his last 180 digits (roughly 4 years worth of work) was totally incorrect. :-/ | ||||

Josiah T. |
Yow. :S | ||||

Sylavash |
I think getting 500 digits by hand is pretty impressive. I don't think I could get the first fifty with out help. | ||||

Mathax |
That was 1404 digits of pi. | ||||

Katie |
Hey! I thought this was a writing site! Leave the math problems somewhere else! It's been so long since I've had Mr. T for a teacher, math is beginning to scare me again. :-P | ||||

Hannah |
Math already scares me and I'm still doing it. I'm a medical mystery. When I do math I get a headache. :) | ||||

Mathax |
Hey, I just got back from a math meet. I did terrible. | ||||

Mathax |
Too bad Kate, Here is a problem. find the equation for all points exactly five from the origin. My answer was [x]=[y]=5. (those are absolute value signs.) | ||||

Hannah |
Wow I feel stupid and blonde right now.... :S | ||||

Josiah T. |
Quote...My answer was [x]=[y]=5. (those are absolute value signs.) And was your answer correct? Alright... What's the ARC path to boot to the fourth partition on the third IDE RAID drive? | ||||

Douglas |
Tomorrow is PI DAY!!!! | ||||

Josiah T. |
*shocked!* You're RIGHT!! How one earth could we forget that?!?!? 3.141592653589793... | ||||

Katie |
AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!! *runs away screaming* You know, if one is frightened of math, one should not be friends with a family of math geeks. ;-) And believe me, I appreciate every one of them. :-) | ||||
