### Re: Brittle math 2: Generalizing is a disease.

Why did you have to put that in hide tags?

Are you asking me to calculate that?

### Re: Brittle math 2: Generalizing is a disease.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

### Re: Brittle math 2: Generalizing is a disease.

You are given no clues, no input except to throw you off. It defeats the purpose of the questions if any hints are given. This is a test for you and only you. Everyone takes it in their own way. You are measured by your response. You only have a couple of minutes.

I believe you are supposed to respond to it with the proper question.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

This thread does not look like a math thread, by the way.

### Re: Brittle math 2: Generalizing is a disease.

True.

However, the sense in which I used "now" is non-specific time-wise; rather, it is "consequently". I'm not at all sleepy now, so if I went to bed now I definitely would not be able to sleep better.
