Re: Some sums

I think it is just the opposite. I think people breakdown sometimes from lack of exertion.


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.

Yes, they may not even know it until they try to exert.

No danger of that. Most do not ever exert themselves.

Hmmm, that's right.
