My father states that
24/3+9
(steps:24/3+9≠24/12=2
because it doesn't follow PEMDAS
Who had reason to disprove him?(which a 5th grader would expect it,but Algebra he thinks that they can't think that solution.)
(Hints before post:
He is talking about
24
-----
3+9

It might,by
1)Making it suitable to live on Venus
  If it REALLY lived on Venus,It might change their to be capable of the chemical composition and pressure.But the worries of #2

Unlikely, I think.  The chemical composition of the atmosphere and the pressure, make it unlikely they would survive.  But, if they do exist, they would be much more dangerous than the gun toting rodents that bobbym is warning about as it would be so much harder to fight back against them.

What would be the evolutionary advantage of three legs ?  On Earth, creatures have many numbers of legs, but I cannot think of a single instance of a creature with three.  Are you sure it isn't just a four legged mouse with one leg hidden from view ?

Bob

would not exist-They will just explode on Earth,on either evolution and design.
2)three legs are more stable
Did you heard about tricycle?

I don't get it.

For example:(10+1x)² ³!
So we have (10),(x),and 5 symbols:(),² ,³,!,1
and the score is deducted by 10,because of the 1

Create the biggest function using (10) , (x) , and any other 5 symbols in a Casio fx-50 FH II calculator:


You may insert 1 number at the cost of 1 symbols and 10 points.
Good luck!

Yes.

Hello Everybody,

This is a infinity game and the interest of it is in the 'Infinity'.
Anybody knows the limit of this game?take"Add 1, then say a username"as an example.
(Because the spam filter don't let me send links,I should post the rules here.Sorry for the inconvenience.
So, if it is a multiple of 3, say bobbym.
If multiple of 5, say anonimnystefy.
If multiple of 7, say n872yt3r.
If multiple of 11, say Agnishom.
If a multiple of 13, say Nehushtan if you are a boy.
If a girl, say mathgogocart.

Example :
1
2
bobbym
4
anonimnystefy
6
n872yt3r
8
9
10
Agnishom
12
Nehushtan)
So,How can I calculate the final limit(means that everybody need to speak a username)?

Using a real time chattting&face-timing software might help you better!

EXECUTE
DO(to execute=to do)
RESEARCH(Do something need to research)
VIEW(view documents=research something)
VIEWED(past tense of view)

#17 Re: Help Me ! » Probability » 2013-10-01 23:46:45

It is wrong because
1.P=[1/6(six)x5/6(not six)x5/6(not six)=25/216]
According to your message,2 should be  P=[1-[answer 1]] ,so your answer is P=[1-25/216=191/216].
Can you think that 191/216 is right?
My answer is:
A:P=[1/6(six)x5/6(not six)x5/6(not six)=25/216]
B:P=[1/6(six)x1/6(six)x1(no six=5/6,six=1/6(It can be a six because the question b need two sixes,so three is acceptable)5/6+1/6=1)=1/36]

I got stuck in thinking the infinity.
I thought like this:
Let infinity be x


2x=2 infinity
The main problem is:There isn't 2 times infinity!
How can it be proven?

#21 Re: This is Cool » Large Prime » 2013-09-23 01:47:39

I have tested on my computer(Mac on Terminal).That doesn't generate any numbers!

You pick a number(3 numbers),multiply by 7,11,13,(example:123X7X11X13=123123)
How it comes?
