Hi;


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Re: 10 second questions

Hi bobbym, anonimnystefy, and Denominator,

The solutions #4227 and #4228 are correct. Neat job! (Denominator, the solution #4227 is 125 meters, not 1250 meters).

Thanks a lot, anonimnystefy (On 10,000 posts)!
