Re: General Quiz

Hi ganesh;

The Answers #3573 and #3574 are correct. Neat work!

Lots of Greek and Roman History and preparation for the Seminary and then the priesthood when I was young.

I will now get the next 2 wrong.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
