This will sort out the men from the boys.

Hi all...

On FB there are ridiculously simple arithmetic memes using images as numbers.

It surprises me how many people get them wrong. Then someone I know posted this baby.

So I decided to repost on FB and label it as:- "This will sort out the men from the boys."

Have fun guys, the mathematicians on here should get it straight away.

A bit of XMAS fun...

Bazza.

Ooh my integration is rusty, but I believe it is; not so much as a hangover or a Facebook post - absolutely nothing at all?

Funny, when I read pies I thought of Wigan, then 1sf. Why on earth did I make that connection!?

I have friend-ed him on FaceBook ages ago and I find him quite a nice guy.
He does not do anything controversial on there and keeps himself to himself.

He has a habit of posting images of new beers he is trying out, along with his regular ales.

Makes my mouth water.

So come back 1sf all is forgiven. ;o)

Welcome back my friend to the show that never ends.

Are you happy with your "Forum jester" status or has the jest worn as thin as my trouser knees?

It is trivial to show that the bottle, burger and handles (to use a little-known antipodean measure) unknowns are 10, 5 and 2 respectively, so our limits are 0 and infinity. I'm sure at one stage I knew how to prove the definite integral of sin(x)/x between 0 and infinity is pi/2. Just like my undergrad days, my first port of call was The Integrator, now integrated into the Wolfram Alpha borg. But that doesn't really help in this case, as the indefinite integral is just a big ugly series... so let's look elsewhere, oh something to do with Laplace transforms, now I'm getting nostaligic. We'll leave this as an exercise for the reader.

Anyhoo with wikipedia kindly solving the hard bit for us all we need to do is multiply pi/2 by bottle/handles = 10 / 2, so simplifiying gives 5 * pi / 2 . Maybe?

Yay i used my terminal degree :)

How can it wear out when it has had so little use for so long?
