Thumbs up Amazed!



Im really enjoying all your comments.

Get off your lofty pyramids and take a ground level look as you cant see an ant hill and all the activity from on high.

Its the case of straining at a gnat and swallowing a camel! you hyp...... (NT)

I reiterate these are all integers and square roots plain and simple. It is so simple that's why I gave it but not expecting all of you to fall in from the
Pons asinorum (Bridge of asses).

Well anyway when I give the simple solution/explanation you will teach it to your grand sons I bet!

Its first level arithmetic and I am surprised how you all passed it to study further.

The elegance in mathematics is in its simplicity which fox men of high calibre.

But I promise tomorrow I will give the solution. In the meantime relax or tickle your brain boxes. The choice is yours and your comments are welcome come what may. \the more the merrier but I want a solution simple Yes or No and why ?

Once again I emphasise there is no play in words or no riddles.

Its a simple integer solution. No need of even a calculator!

Of course, this wil lonly apply to kindergarten math :> I just presumed everybody had the knowledge that MY knowledge didn't reach any further

At least my TeX did work out al right :)

Surely the bible contains the answer to your question, Mally - why consult with us lowly guttersnipes? (Hint: it's probably next to the Pi = 10/3 psalm).

Failing that, you could always consult the Q'uran, like you did in your recent work on relativity theory.

w.r.t. your psalm quotation re pi, I note that m_f_h
never got round to answering why he thought pi
lay between 3 and 4 (see thread title). Since he is
currently "on air", perhaps he can tell us now?

It's tomorrow and in anticipation of the promised "solution"
