Re: English language puzzles

Hi ganesh;


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.

Re: English language puzzles

Unfortunately, I do not see the point of these questions. Can someone simply not google the words for proper definitions, then paraphrase? Not imply that anyone here is cheating though.
