Nothing more really needs to be said.
Ya I am not upset that we are up by 4 games in the division
What is amazing is that this is after just two weeks! So all three other teams are averaging losses by double digits.
2 games..., where you get 4?
He can't count.
Pats are 2-0. the Rest of the division is 0-2. For the division race we basically have a 4 game lead. Math says if you count backward from positive 2 to negative 2 you get....anyone....4
I really hope you are joking.
2+2=4. He's right.
Ya well I had to try to come up with something clever after my first post. Guess nobody bought the jedi mind trick. Oh well I thought it was worth a try. lol
Tell the truth, you weren't joking. It's OK, we won't tell no one.
4 * 0.5 = 2
Ya your right. It was my understanding there would be no math today. My theory sounded good to me. I will stick to my strong suits like poor spelling from now on.
let a = b
Multiply both sides by a
aÂ² = ab
Add (aÂ² - 2ab) to both sides
aÂ² + aÂ² - 2ab = ab + aÂ² - 2ab
Factor the left, and collect like terms on the right
2(aÂ² - ab) = aÂ² - ab
Divide both sides by (aÂ² - ab)
2 = 1
The East sucks?
Absolutely, 2 x 2 = 4. He's correct.
sorry if i am wrong, but you cannot divide by a variable, because if the variable were zero, it would be undefined. that is just my understanding, not sure if it is right.
Oh Christ, not more math!
How 'bout some content? Posting the same tired picture in every thread you troll is getting old.
This is pretty interesting. Of course, given your premise of a=b and a squared=ab then asquared - ab must equal 0, thus your final equation must be 0=0.
I'm sure you already knew that though and it doesn't take away from the novelty of it.
Well you can divide by a variable when you know or can assume it is non-zero.
In the above when "Divide both sides by (aÂ² - ab)", that's illegal since a = b, we know (aÂ² - ab) = 0. So yea the proof falls apart there but I still like to pretend 2=1
