Exponents... Simple right?Objective  #2 20051207 05:19:24
Re: Exponents... Simple right?D. You are told that 250 sheets of paper make 1 inch, so to get the height, just divide the amount of ballots by 250 and that is the amount of inches. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #3 20051207 09:19:53
Re: Exponents... Simple right?What a neat little exercise! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #4 20051207 10:44:39
Re: Exponents... Simple right?Hmm. A4 paper is 21x29.7 cm, so it has an area of 623.7cm² Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #5 20051207 10:51:52
Re: Exponents... Simple right?After only 20 cuts you would be left with a ballot .2900390625mm high by .205078125mm wide!! (That's 1/87 X 1/125 inches) Since this far less than the normal diameter of mechanical pencil led I doubt that anyone could vote with it because even a "dot" would not fit on the ballot.
