Re: Hi?Oooohh .. a PUZZLE ! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #3 20050529 10:03:16
Re: Hi?I tried dozens of combinations and none of them work ... it may be impossible to do following those instructions! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #4 20050529 19:23:37
Re: Hi?(6 + 6) \ 6 + 6 = 8 Boy let me tell you what: I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too. And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you. #5 20050530 18:28:47
Re: Hi?i hve too tried a dozen of combinations and i kept trying for 2 hrs. its not working! #6 20050530 20:14:03
Re: Hi?I think that's impossible, because straight off I realised that you are only working with numbers in the 6 times table, no matter what you do. Is nine one of them? School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #7 20050530 20:19:28
Re: Hi?9's not in the 6 times table. Numpty. But, if there were 5 6's, I expect I could get it to work... Boy let me tell you what: I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too. And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you. #8 20050530 20:54:16
Re: Hi?Well, we had fun trying. But this one is headed for the circular file. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #9 20050531 21:36:13
Re: Hi?i have the solution. I come back stronger than a poweredup PacMan I bought a large popcorn @ the cinema the other day, it was pretty big...some might even say it was "large Fatboy Slim is a Legend #10 20050605 05:11:54
Re: Hi?
Nothing is really impossible in life but in maths that is the hard thing about their is only one answer and quite a lot of things are impossible in MATHS!!!!!!!!!!! #11 20050605 08:59:32
Re: Hi?Interesting point, Ceno. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #12 20050623 06:57:32
Re: Hi?yes but they aren't real are they I come back stronger than a poweredup PacMan I bought a large popcorn @ the cinema the other day, it was pretty big...some might even say it was "large Fatboy Slim is a Legend #13 20050623 09:00:24
Re: Hi?But how do you know, Mr T? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #14 20050624 01:11:26
Re: Hi?Um, undefined. School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #15 20050624 01:37:04
Re: Hi?"Math Error" Boy let me tell you what: I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too. And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you. #16 20050624 05:12:00
Re: Hi?important thing here...not real I come back stronger than a poweredup PacMan I bought a large popcorn @ the cinema the other day, it was pretty big...some might even say it was "large Fatboy Slim is a Legend #17 20050624 06:28:51
Re: Hi?
or even 'i' Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #18 20050624 07:59:32
Re: Hi?
Yes, that is what is so interesting. Maths goes beyond what we think is real, and shows us a reality far exceeding our normal experience. Every so often this new reality shows us a new thing about our normal life. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M.

Re: Hi?The "i"s have it "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #21 20050625 00:10:52

Re: Hi?Neither is a jellyfish which can speak three hundred european languages, do you hear anyone complaining? Boy let me tell you what: I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too. And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.
