Hi soroban;

Rule #7 rules!!!

Thats what powers Eddingtons monkey. If you type long enough and fast enough not only will you solve the word problem but every other problem, even ones that haven't been thought of yet.

**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.**
