A simpleton asks a maths question...

NOTE: When i write 'x', it does not stand for a multiplication sign. It stands for an algebraic curly x.

 

Brace yourself.

 

When x is 3...

 

Is 2x squared: A) 18, or B) 36 ............................. ?

Its 36 because the sum is whatever 2 times x is, squared, not x squared times 2, basically 2x is worked out then what ever is left is squared, its like this:

 

2x squared = 36

 

2 x X squared = 18

 

the above is confusing because of the x's but its basically 2 x 3 squared = 18

 

Thats my opinion anyway

It's a trick question. The true answer is that maths is a load of made up bollocks that makes no sense to anyone except dullards who should be smashed in the head with a machete.

 

Was my favourite subject at school. :blush: :lol:

All life is Biology; All Biology is Chemistry; All Chemistry is Physics; All Physics is Maths.

 

Therefore: All life is Maths.

 

 

Without Mathematics, we wouldn't be here.

I was musing the other day what infinity / (infinity/2) is

 

presumably infinity, but intuitively it should be double infinity :lol:
