Re: General Quiz

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.

#3879 was a question I had no chance of knowing. I searched it up now and found that some of them come from the Americas, but nothing about India/Portuguese.
