Re: Complex joke..

Your clue, MathIsFun, was really good & relevant too but i didn't have the slightest idea that we've got to 'simplify' rt(-1/64)!
All i was thinking was something like "root over negative....' which obviously didn't make any sense to me!

Actually I never watch Star Wars and not interested in it anyway, but I choose a Yoda card as my avatar in honor of our great friend bobbym who has passed away.

Re: Complex joke..

i) Two random variables were talking in a bar. They thought they were being discrete but I heard their chatter continuously.

Explanation: When you roll a die, you either get a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6. Since there are a finite number of possibilities, the statistic involved is called a discrete random variable. When you select any real number from between 0 and 1, there are an infinite number of possible draws. The statistic involved is called a continuous random variable.

ii) Write the expression for the volume of a thick crust pizza with height "a" and radius "z".

Explanation: The formula for volume is

. In this case, pi·z·z·a.

iii) What do you get when you cross a mosquito with a mountain climber?

Nothing. You can't cross a vector and a scalar.

Explanation: A vector is a mathematical entity with both magnitude and direction in any number of dimensions. You can take the cross product of two vectors to form a new vector, similar to multiplication of real numbers.

A scalar is just a real number, a directionless magnitude in vector space. You cannot take a cross product of a scalar and a vector.

Hence, you can't cross a mosquito (disease vector) and a mountain climber (a scalar).
