    I got the thing about Poles, but the first one eluded me.

    Heh heh, I don't know enough about calculus yet either.

    I think it divided the exponential. But what do I know? I'm only taking Algebra 1.

    f(x) would be function but I'm completely clueless/ful about the others.

    C means constant eh?

    So function = constant which would make constant function and...

    Bleh, I don't know any of this stuff, still stuck in crappy Geometry class and I'll have the (O Noes! Teh nightmare!) same teacher when I get into programming class.

    I'm prolly sure you're smarter than the 70-ish cat lady in my class.

    Algebra 1? Well, "Maths 2" here literally translates into "Mastery in Arts of Trigonometric and Hell of Statistics" =__=

    Maths can make you mad in one week. Especially if it's the final exams

    I don't understand math terms in English, sadly, otherwise I'd have baffled you all with my knowledge.

    I don't understand math terms at all, otherwise I wouldn't be so baffled.

    Wikipedia is your friend. Search for it in the Dutch one, if it's there, it'll probably have a link to the English page (and thus, name) in the column at the left. Most of the names are similar anyway.

    Besides, you could obviously just explain it to us without writing any words. I learn fast, so there's a chance I'll know what you're talking about. I dunno about you guys, though.

    Um, no. Maths (like sciences and actually everything) needs correct terms. If you have to explain what a vector space is every time you need one, we'd never make progress. It's kind of the aim, in that you just label a thing and that everyone knows what it's about, or can do his own research. If I can prove that set X with operations + and . is a vector space, then I can immediately talk about eigenvectors, dual spaces and everything. If I need to explain every time what I'm doing when using eigenvectors, then... No.

    Note: you are not supposed to understand the above terms, but you are encouraged to do research around them. They are one of the basics of higher maths.

    Maths Tests are fun sometimes.

    My last one (it was about functions) had an exercise with a graphic, which represented the variation of Temperature of a room for 12 hours(8:30-20:30).
    And so:
    3.3 In your opinion, does the room have any warming system?

    At first I though I had to do some weirdo explanations. XD
    #

    ..... I am speechless... who made that exam?

    Because if it was here, I would be told to write the equation for the graphs instead, and explain things as "THEY" see fit.

    New topic: Is 0.99999999=1 ?

    Well, here's some calculations I made:
    0.999999999999=1
    9.999999999999=10
    9=10-0.999999999999
    9=9.0000000000000000...

    I know it's not true, but... XD

    I know it's not true, but... XD
    It is true, though. That is about the standard argument to prove that 0.99.. = 1.
    #
    E_net4 9 years ago
    And the very problem is that we cannot represent the tiny little part of 9.00000...
    Even calculators say that 0.99999999=1, but it's not the same method. XD

    E_net4 9 years ago
    Yes, but as we say 9.999999999999999999... the 9's continue to infinity.
    So there's no way to show the missing part, and then 9=9, as in, 0.99999999999=1

    Well, 42 IS the answer to life, the universe AND everything.

    And since it's the answer to EVERYTHING, every mathematical calculation should support having "42" as the answer.

    I wonder if my maths teacher would agree on that.

    Actually, once, in a maths test, I had no idea on the answer of a question, so I input "42". The tests came back, and it read: "Please include the calculations." I had almost full points of it.

    It is mathematically impossible. You cannot end an infinite sequence with a 1, by the very nature of infinite.

    Pete 9 years ago
    Infinite is evil. If you let it sneak in once, it assimilates everything. For example: 0[infinite 9s] takes an infinite time to write, infinite time to read, infinite time to understand, the resulting number from10-0[infinite 9s] will be 9.[infinite 0s]1... Yuck!
