Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

To tidy things up I have decided to answer this one now:

This is already fully cancelled because there are no whole numbers above one that you can divide
both 13 and 21 by to leave a whole number.

Notice that it is possible to check the answer by doing 13 divided by 21 on a calculator and then
checking that this is the same as ((2 divided by 7) + (1 divided by 3)) the things in brackets are
done first. Both equal 0.619047.... (etc.) with the six digits {6,1,9,0,4,7} repeating in a cycle.

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

The weather has been record hot. Today around 108F. We have had two hurricane type storms in the last two days and are now drenched in rain.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

I have sent you an email about centimetres/metres conversion.

There are 6 questions for you to have a go at. Let me know when you have either done them or got stuck.

Bye.

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

Could the email be sometimes going to the blackberry and sometimes to the "compaq" computer?

I am also wondering whether there was an over-zealous spam filter accidentally deleting a whole load of my or your emails.

That would explain a lot if it had.

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

I am not sure, but I think that your email receiving is accidentally deleting many of the emails I send.
I did send them, but you say that you have not got them.

Anti-spam software is not perfect it could very easily class a non spam item as spam,
or class a piece of spam as not spam and let it through.

With the email software I have it lets me choose what to download based upon headers - usually everything.
I have known the occassional good email get classed as spam by the email software.

Also ISPs do sometimes delete massive amounts of spam using clever software of their own.
I wonder if they have accidentally deleted some of my emails to you. If so I cannot do anything about it.

Also I notice that you have used two computers to send email on (if I am understanding things correctly).
Therefore are you always checking both computers when you receive an email ?

I have edited post #1171 with my latest theory, but really I don't know at the moment.

I am going to try pasting this post into an email to see if you can get it. Let me know what happens.....
