i flunked maths but im pretty sure that because of the 1-1 in the middle there are actually several answers, all correct in a sense and all wrong if you know what i mean...
if indices (<-- dem der bracket tings-->) were used then you would be able to give a proper answer... and also the 1x0 is gonna confuse people that didn't pay attention in school too...

if it was like this... 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+(1-1)+1+1+1+1+1+1x0=

then you would be able to give a definitive answer, you gets meh?


edit: we used to do shit like this all the time in school, its harder to do when you are perma-baked liked i was in year 11... :rolleyes:

actually also putting indices around the 1x0 at the end would make it make much more clearer to figure out...

1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+(1-1)+1+1+1+1+1+(1x0)=

To be fair my calculator agrees with Weevil. I think Panty wants us to grapple with the concept of the infinite or something.

It's 0. You can have any amount of numbers added together then multiplied and divided and then multiplied etc. but if all of them are then multiplied by 0, the numbers wouldn't exist in the first place.




I think :teeth:

Wiki's appears to think zero is a number... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero


I don't. I think these guys are much more on the ball. Zero to them is complete nonsense... http://mathforum.org/dr.math/faq/faq.divideby0.html I mean come on why the fuck is it between 1 and -1 on an axis?!

Lol apparently dividing by zero isn't allowed. Maybe Logikz could shed some light on this he's a numbers man?

Three friends check into a motel for the night and the clerk tells them the bill is £30, payable in advance. So, they each pay the clerk £10 and go to their room.

A few minutes later, the clerk realizes he has made an error and overcharged the trio by £5. He asks the bellhop to return £5 to the 3 friends who had just checked in.

The bellhop sees this as an opportunity to make £2 as he reasons that the three friends would have a tough time dividing £5 evenly among them; so he decides to tell them that the clerk made a mistake of only £3, giving a dollar back to each of the friends. He pockets the leftover £2 and goes home for the day!

Now, each of the three friends gets a dollar back, thus they each paid £9 for the room which is a total of £27 for the night. We know the bellhop pocketed £2 and adding that to the £27, you get £29, not £30 which was originally spent.

Where did the other pound go?

AFAIK Zero technically is a number, even though it isn't odd or even, it cannot be divided or multiplied, subtracted or added, it isn't a prime number and it isn't the square root of a number...

dunno where the other pound went, maybe the bellhop dropped it, but in any case he's a cunt for stealing their money and then giving back to them Dollars instead of Pounds...

it didnt go anywhere, as its not a minus, its a plus. thats why. the real question is what the hell the meaning of the answers is? share and like? thats not maths talk, im not the smartest man in the world but im pretty sure of that. im a simple man. loaf of bread, jug of wine, a song to sing. that kind of stuff.

No one seems to have mentioned that up until the x 0 bit at the end the sum adds up to 14, not 13....

Not that that matters though as 14 x 0 is still 0
