Re: Problems and Solutionsrimi, your solution to Problem # k + 100 is correct Character is who you are when no one is looking. #453 20060223 19:41:05

Re: Problems and SolutionsBy taking the route of a  b = 20, instead of b  a = 20, you can also get an answer of 180. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #456 20060224 09:11:01
Re: Problems and SolutionsNice catch mathsyperson, can I still be half right? Maybe it should have read, "What are the sums of the numbers?". Hey, did I just get tricked!? Last edited by irspow (20060224 09:20:06) #457 20060224 09:25:38
Re: Problems and SolutionsYou can be almost fully right, really. You did all the working, and I just stuck a little comment on the end. And I think the reason why ganesh didn't phrase it like that was because he missed it himself. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #458 20060224 17:11:12
Re: Problems and Solutionsmathsyperson is right! Although I explore the possibilites of other solutions, this time I didn't think of that Character is who you are when no one is looking. #459 20060224 17:43:12

Re: Problems and SolutionsPossibly a bit unconventional... But nothing unconventional here. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #469 20060227 07:38:42

Re: Problems and SolutionsI was actually wondering that for quite a while, MathIsFun. Wouldn't it be more organized if Ganesh did one question per topic? I mean, we got an entire section of the forum for it, why not? "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #471 20060227 15:49:34
Re: Problems and SolutionsTo mathsyperson : Funnily, your solution to Problem # k + 107 is correct, although unconventional, as you put it. Please read the Problem # k + 108 again before posting your solution. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #472 20060227 21:18:34
Re: Problems and SolutionsDo you mean this is the end of "Problems and solutions"? IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations. #473 20060227 21:26:23
Re: Problems and SolutionsI hope not. Some problems would be posted here in the future too. There are some unanswered problems for which solutions would have to be posted. Hence, this is not the end of 'Problems and solutions'. This topic shall remain the precursor of other topics. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #474 20060301 15:28:18

Re: Problems and SolutionsIt's fairly simple apart from when a ends in 5. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal.
