Don't all rush to find it kids, but I just realised that the complete works of Shakespeare (in ASCII) are to be found in Pi.  Also, your DNA is in there.  Hey, perhaps we only exist within PI.

Hmmm.... Stephen used to claim to know PI to 100 decimal places.

That's all.

That's 124 digits that I can remember right now.  At one stage I know about twice that many.

I do physics and chemistry, not maths.  Thefore, I approximate it to 3.

Makes life easier. 

Actually, I do do maths, but I try to keep it secret.

(where in the case of Tom King, n=4)

Some of the base 2, 3 and 4 numbers are out (otherwise very good!).

Corrections to base 2: 131072, 262144, 524288
Corrections to base 3: 243, 729, 2187 (not from memory), 6561
Corrections to base 4: 65536 on the end!

This is the sequence of question numbers for the suggested maths homework of students doing course MATH252 in the university of Oregon on Tuesday, March 12th while studying section 7.8.

But you're also right.  The OGR can't be continued, did you read about it?

No... What do you mean, it can't be continued?  Oh you mean that particular ruler (0 1 4 9 11) can't be continued?  Well yeah in that case it was a silly problem!  smile

A little rhyme

1 1 was a race horse,
1 2 was 1 2.
If 1 1 1 1 race,
1 2 1 1 2.

Understood?  Then write it in words.

ErEERr a pair of DUCKS.  How odd.  They're facing the same way as your odd goose.  I noticed today that due to some odd law of goose-floating, floating geese all seem to face the same way.  Honk, honk.
Stephen Brooks
2002-08-10 19:13:17
Except the ducks that always sit like this:



The geese are very purposeful so they tend to face the same direction.  Even odder this board displayed THAT post as the most recent even though I'd just posted one elsewhere.

Errr tripoint ducks.  They're all odd and totally unlike icebergs.  With icebergs, only less than a third of thier mass is above the water, but with ducks less than a third is in the water.  Someone ought to alter the density of water so that the ducks sink just so that thier heads stick out.
Stephen Brooks
2002-08-11 08:40:05
Errr it's not like that at all.  All you have to do is raise the level of the water so that it comes up to about 8cm above the height at which the ducks swim.  Then you just get ducks' heads.

On a very dry summer you often see the ducks levitating above the river because it has fallen about 20cm due to evaporation.
