Re: A Nice ClockTen is the the acceleration of Earth's gravity, 9.82 m/s/s. Some versions of this clock have it written as so it equals 10 exactly.Eleven is written in hexadecimal. In decimal, we have numbers 1 to 9, but in hexadecimal, as well as 1 to 9 there's 'a' to 'f' so you can keep counting: a equals ten, b equals eleven and so on. The zero at the front of '0b' doesn't make any difference here. It's just like writing the number three (in decimal) as 03. Last edited by muxdemux (20130126 19:27:42) #4 20130128 00:15:07

Re: A Nice ClockHi Agnishom; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #6 20130128 00:53:29
Re: A Nice ClockNice Clock,Agnishom.I WANT THAT CLOCK *buys* Hey. #7 20130128 04:37:22
Re: A Nice ClockI want that it's so cool!  n872yt3r Math Is Fun Rocks! By the power of the exponent, I square and cube you! #8 20130128 04:51:43

Re: A Nice Clock
I was talking about 6.9999.... which is exactly 7 and not a roundoff of it 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: A Nice ClockI get it... just like 1/3 is never exact, it's 3.333333333 but then it would have to be the only 1/3. Is that it?  n872yt3r Math Is Fun Rocks! By the power of the exponent, I square and cube you! #13 20130129 00:56:58
Re: A Nice ClockYes, its like that ... "the recurring decimal" 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: A Nice ClockThe 5 is the best one. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
