Indeed well spotted Bad speling makes me [sic] #27 20060917 09:42:27
Re: Battleship on the number lineEdit: "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..." #28 20060918 03:55:43
Re: Battleship on the number lineAh, so by going at a speed of π mph it can evade our bombs forever. Pesky battleship. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #29 20060918 10:53:01
Re: Battleship on the number lineNot exactly, mathsyperson. It's not the fact that a number can't be wrote as a/b which makes it impossible to tell. It's the number of numbers that can't be written as a/b which does. "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..." #30 20060918 11:17:36
Re: Battleship on the number lineYes, I get you. Edit: That should probably be hidden or something. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal.
