i refuse to be inside () with usta!!!!! and i do not multiply with rose and never am i under earlymon and nova is not my equal that is = divide by zero

Oh! Now you're just showing off how you knew it was 42!!! Sigh. You do not multiply with Roze - you add with Usta, then I multiply the outcome, all to be divided by Roze. Uh oh. Roze is being divisive!

But what kind of dog is it? I mean if it's a little lap dog thing... then the answer is 1. Because that kinda dog doesn't need so much room. On the other hand, if it's Lassie, then Grandpa fell down the mine and we need to get help.

I was wondering if this problem was designed to isolate left-brainers from right-brainers, but the roughly 50/50 split seems to indicate otherwise. But for sure, our viewpoint (whether correct or not) says something about our personalities and how we see the world.

Misconception that accountants are good at math. We only deal with basic math of addition, subtraction multiplication and they are usually in excel lol WTH! lol when you start using people in the equation...that means we're moving on from the question at hand. but hmm.... so if EM and Roze are equal (both being mods), we are basically negated in the equation so... If we are following PEDMAS, that means dan + usta = novox nope, read statement above! Refuse all you want lol Aren't I always?

my name got pretty bastardized in the last half-page of posts. wonder what it will eventually evolve to.

I kept thinking of dan's assertions - and it hit me what you were saying: So - that's the same as: EarlyMon*dan330 + EarlyMon*Usta = novox77 * Roze (imo) So, if novox77 and Roze multiplied (imo), the result might be confused - very confused. Schizophrenic even. And what about that (imo)? Is that putting on the dog? Or just its house? I'm just glad it wasn't a cat - we'd never know where he was.

Jeez - calling dan one usta shy of a novox was pretty personal there! You left out the (imo) - dan330 + Usta = novox77 (imo) And that's only presuming we're equal (both being mods). I think the real reason you factored us out with that sleight of hand was because you didn't want people to see you under me. *cough* Only when it's sunny or dark, Roze, only when it's sunny or dark. edit and PS - Am I the only one who realizes what (imo) looks like if you tip your head all the way to the right???? Kinda makes the solution obvious.

Jeez Roze - suppose his wife is waiting to go out tonight and dan330 and Usta show up... Yer opening a can o' worms here...

Ahhhhhhhhhh!! I think I am right!!! xD It IS time or a clock!! 11........12........1..........2.......3.........4..........5.........6.........7.....8......9.....10...........11.....12..........1 They are paired together!!!! xD It is the hours of a clock!!! MWhahahaaa!!! SO THE NEXT NUMBER IS: 2 Damn I could be wrong though!

The last handful of posts is one of the great things I LOVE about this forum!!!! Dont let me interrupt, please continue....

(Copied from Yahoo questions) Just felt like adding fuel to the fire. I am your college professor that you requested, with a doctorate in Mathematics. I will break this down as simply as possible and end this debate as approx. 10 students have already asked me this today. The problem as it is written is 6

Welcome windowshade! I've seen several emails from math professors that solved the problem and they all say 9 (if none of them are photoshopped... but that would be a bit extreme). I'll see if I can try to dig them up because I saw them in the many posts on Facebook. I do agree with the poster that it would be different if the symbol was '/' instead of '

My calc teacher back in high school did calc for fun... We teased him about it and he didn't care. lol He also did a lot of stats for some website to make extra money. I forgot what he was doing exactly but I know he made a good amount of money.

My high school calc teacher was the same way. He's famous for having started the Math Club at our highschool when he was a student. Must be something inherent to highschool calc teachers, eh?

Gee.. why do you think they became math teachers? To pass on their love of math to the students. I find the teachers I had that were passionate about what they were teaching were the best teachers.
