Shocking statistic.."50% of universities are below average according to a recent survey." #2 20110521 22:52:42
Re: Shocking statistic..Hi studymaths; 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. #3 20110522 07:06:00
Re: Shocking statistic..I am impressed my your intelligence from reading posts on this forum. Did you really never attend school?! #4 20110522 11:30:14
Re: Shocking statistic..
Based on my results I wonder if I ever was there at all. Because I am a person, I can easily prove that the average person on the planet has less than one brain. 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.

Re: Shocking statistic..Oh, I see what you are saying, yes, I am very serious. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Shocking statistic..bobbym, I hope you do get the humor 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Shocking statistic..What humor did I miss? 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. #10 20131202 05:49:56
Re: Shocking statistic..The average of some data cannot be less than half of it 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Shocking statistic..That is not the point. I said I could prove that humanity had on the average less than 1 brain. That is humor. 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. #12 20131202 05:53:52
Re: Shocking statistic..Okay, prove it. I'll post a couple of questions in Help Me the next morning 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun.

Re: Shocking statistic..Post #4 proves it most elegantly. 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.

Re: Shocking statistic..Maybe it's me (or some language thing ..), but i don't see an error in the initial post #15 20131206 23:24:03
Re: Shocking statistic..How is it possible that half of the data is less than its mean? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun.

Re: Shocking statistic..The joke works only if by average you mean median.

Not quite.

Re: Shocking statistic..
Ah i see. guess someone might find that funny.
